In a clear indication that the ‘Washington Cartel’, as Cruz calls it, is an unholy alliance, consider this: Never mind that the eruptions by Cruz, Rubio, and Christie during the second part of the debate created so much heat that the RNC was forced to censure NBC and pull the plug on the next debate, it’s what the RNC did during the break which speaks volumes about the true situation.
In the middle of the CNBC-hosted GOP debate on Wednesday, RNC chief strategist and spokesman Sean Spicer and chief of staff Katie Walsh approached CNBC officials. According to a source familiar with the encounter, the two had a complaint: Jeb Bush wasn’t getting enough questions.
The same complaint had come from Bush campaign manager Danny Diaz, though Bush spokesperson Tim Miller said he was not aware of the encounter between the RNC officials and CNBC. The source familiar with the encounter said Spicer and Walsh did not bring up any other candidates.
This cartel, consisting of the leadership of BOTH parties is working together just fine – to spend the USA into bankruptcy, and suffocate it with regulations.
Just listen to Cruz excoriate it in this excerpt (Courtesy of Liberty Pen) from his floor speech on the corrupt bipartisan budget deal:
The overwhelming winner of the 603 Alliance Grassroots Presidential Selection Caucus for Republican Candidates on October 17 was U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Dr. Ben Carson came in second place, and Carly Fiorina came in third.
The members of the 603 Alliance, who pledged that they would support and campaign for whomever was the victor in the Grassroots Caucus, have officially endorsed Senator Cruz, unanimously.
Over 700 grassroots activists turned out for this first-ever New Hampshire Caucus that was organized by the 603 Alliance. This Caucus was designed to give grassroots activists a chance to make their voices heard; and they did so quite clearly at the Durgin Arena at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds. Enthusiastic voters arrived early….
Jim Morose, from Danvers, MA was one of our non-voting marshals, all of whom kindly traveled from out of state to ensure a fair count. Jim also took video for Danvers Community Access TV, and sent us the link. Thankyou Jim.
Senator Ted Cruz is the Victor
in the Grassroots Presidential Selection Caucus.
Dr. Ben Carson was in 2nd place, and Carly Fiorina was 3rd.
Two days ago we witnessed an historic event in New Hampshire — the first-ever New Hampshire Grassroots Caucus for Presidential Candidates. Over 750 grassroots activists filled the barn-like Durgin Arena at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds to make their voices heard loud and clear. The energy was high and the excitement contagious.
Those of you who were there will always remember this important day, and we thank you for your participation. It was a wonderful demonstration of grassroots politics in its truest form.
Thanks to all the voters who turned out in barely 40 degree temperatures this Saturday in order to exercise a novel (for NH) method of figuring out which GOP candidate has the broadest appeal to the grassroots.
All candidates were invited, nay, exhorted, to attend, or send representatives, to encourage their supporters, and to send a surrogate speaker or a video clip to make their pitch.
The results reflect a combination of the candidate’s breadth of appeal, and the effort put forth by their campaign – our hats off to Ted Cruz and his team for encouraging the most supporters to attend, and for persuading the majority of the voters freed from early rounds to join their group for the final count.
The 603 Alliance held the first conservative caucus in the history of New Hampshire. There were over 700 Granite State grass roots activists in attendance. It was free and all Republican Presidential candidates were invited to participate, although not all chose to do so. You could feel the energy in the room as soon as you walked in and people were actually having fun. Fun is not often used to describe political events.
