U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham endorses Jeb Bush

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Good news from the Bush camp this morning with the news that U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has endorsed Governor Jeb Bush for president.
Here are Senator Graham’s remarks:
“Now I am a citizen having to cast my vote as to who I want to be commander-in-chief for that one percent fighting force. I have concluded without any hesitation, without any doubt, that Jeb Bush is ready on day one to be a commander-in-chief worthy of the sacrifices of the one percent who have been fighting this war.
“Last night he said, “I will have their backs.” I believe he will. Last night he explained in the best possible terms why we need partners to win a war that we can’t afford to lose. To those of you who worry about going in it alone, you don’t have to worry with Jeb because he understands that America can’t go at it alone but, of all others running for president, I think he has the ability to bring the world on board.

Lee Talley: ‘I am a dad and I’m voting for Ed Gillespie’

Lee TalleyBy Lee Talley

There have been many, many wonderful endorsements of Ed Gillespie over the last few days. Former Presidents and other folks of stature and success have all told us how they feel he is the man to be our next Senator in Virginia. I’m not somebody famous or someone of great political or cultural stature. I am one thing even greater than President in my eyes. I am a father; I am Dad!

LynnRMitchell.com enthusiastically endorses Republican candidate Ed Gillespie for U.S. Senate 2014. His vision for the Commonwealth has re-energized Virginia’s citizens who have felt unrepresented by incumbent Mark Warner and, in the gridlock that is Washington politics, Mr. Gillespie brings fresh ideas with his proposed EG2 economic plan for Virginia. He is positive and optimistic, and has carried that upbeat attitude on the campaign trail with his belief that “the old normal is the new mediocre. We can do better.”

Ed Gillespie doesn’t just talk the talk. He has spent more than 30 years in Republican politics with skin in the game, “paying his dues,” so to speak. With a work ethic and goal-oriented passion passed on by his Irish immigrant parents, he watched first-hand what hard work could do toward building the American dream. They are lessons he still practices.

In a show of support for Ed Gillespie‘s vision for Virginia, the Richmond Times-Dispatch endorsed the Republican for U.S. Senate (see Gillespie for Senate).

Noting the many reasons, they wrote:

We endorse Gillespie because his philosophy embraces free markets and free people, the ultimate American solutions, and because we are confident he will serve as an able and honest senator.

It’s time to thank Mark Warner for his efforts and send him back to the private sector, where he will no doubt flourish. Virginia needs a senator who does more than propose. We need one who will help formulate, stimulate and legislate effective solutions. That’s Ed Gillespie.
