For the first time in our history, the Constitution Party has succeeded in getting enough signatures to place a remarkable young candidate on the ballot for the office of governor in the state of New Jersey. His name is Matt Riccardi. He is a very dynamic young man and is garnering significant attention through his campaign. Matt has a very busy schedule and he has been able to introduce the party to a growing number of voters in that very liberal state. He will be sharing his experiences with us at the upcoming Constitution Party National Committee meeting in Pittsburgh, PA October 27th and 28th.
It has become obvious that the liberal GOP establishment intends to defeat all conservative Republicans running for any office, including Congress. This has become crystal clear in the recent GOP primaries in Alabama and Utah, just to name two states. In both cases the GOP establishment deliberately ran liberal candidates against very capable conservative candidates. Furthermore, in each state, two conservative candidates were placed on the ballot with the goal of dividing the conservative vote, thereby hoping to elect their liberal candidates with a plurality of the vote. The plan worked beautifully in Utah, but fortunately it failed in Alabama, much to the dismay of the establishment. The opposition spent 300% more funds than did the Roy Moore campaign and Moore still handily won the recent runoff primary. Because of these and other recent events, including the Republican Congress’ betrayal of voters in refusing to repeal Obamacare, a growing number of conservative Republicans have become increasingly disillusioned with the GOP and are looking for an alternative.
As a result of such ongoing actions, we have recently been contacted by a well-known conservative Republican, Vernon Robinson, who has served two terms in public office. He stated he can no longer remain in the Republican Party and is convinced that there is an overwhelming number of like minded Republicans who feel the same way. He further stated he feels “that the Constitution Party has never had a greater opportunity to tap into the GOP betrayal of the country.” Those are his exact words. He has since agreed to be the keynote speaker at the Constitution Party National Committee meeting in Pittsburgh.
One other well known Republican, Joe Miller, has also agreed to address that body. Mr. Miller defeated Senator Lisa Murkowski in the 2010 GOP Primary for the US Senate seat in Alaska. However the establishment then organized a write-in campaign for Murkoski in which she narrowly defeated Miller in the November General Election.
Yet another well known Republican, William “Bill” J. Olson, from Virginia, has requested to attend the meeting and will also address the group. It is his law firm that wrote the amicus brief in the Masterpiece Cakeshop bakery case that will be heard before the Supreme Court. All three gentlemen are traveling to the meeting at their own expense. To me, that is indicative of the level of interest they have in the Constitution Party.
However, there still remains one caveat that is critical for us to meet. We must show them that the Constitution Party, with its three pillars, has appeal to the general public. To that end, we set a goal to raise $10,000 before the National Committee Meeting in Pittsburgh. Thus far we are just under the $5,000.00 mark. That goal is still attainable but we need your help to achieve it.
The most viable way we have to show this support is to raise the balance of the $10,000.00 in the next two weeks. I am confident that this can be done and I am therefor appealing to each of you to give serious consideration to this funding request. Please step forward and donate today. It is critical that you donate what you can, whether $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20,00, $25.00, $50.00, $100.00, or $500.00. You can donate online, or mail your donation to, Constitution Party, P.O. Box 1782, Lancaster, PA 17608. Raising $10,000.00 prior to us meeting him in person will be the catalyst for opening up doors of opportunity that the party has never seen.
Time is of the essence, so please take action now and make it possible for this door of opportunity to become a reality for the party.
In the cause of Liberty,
