John McCain: There He Goes Again Showing His RINO (True) Colors

This is from Sen Jim DeMint, Chairman
Senate Conservatives Fund

Dear Friends:

I have very urgent news regarding the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Colorado. I have just learned that Arizona Senator John McCain plans to travel to Colorado this weekend to campaign against Ken Buck, the principled conservative in the race.

Ken Buck’s opponent is the pick of the Washington establishment, but Buck has proven to be the pick of the people of Colorado. The old guard in Washington, aided by the liberal national media, is determined to stop the people of Colorado from sending a true conservative to the U.S. Senate.

In a prepared response, Buck’s campaign consultant had this to say about McCain’s campaign trip to Colorado:

"The visit comes as no surprise. McCain called on Jane to run. He rallied an army of lobbyists to raise money for her. Now, at the end of a desperate campaign, Norton’s dragging Sen. McCain all the way out of her closet. He’s coming to Colorado to personally attack Ken Buck."

Ken Buck is a rock-solid conservative and will bring positive, new ideas to the U.S. Senate. He’s run a positive, grassroots campaign and is strongly supported by Tea Party activists. Ken Buck is an authentic conservative leader who will stop reckless spending, oppose amnesty, and fight for our constitutional freedoms.

As Buck came from behind and rose in the polls, his opponent began making dishonest attacks against him. When that didn’t work, she began using gender politics against him, claiming voters should vote for her because she wore "high heels." When Buck jokingly told a crowd they should vote for him because he didn’t wear high heels — a reference to his opponents desperate use of gender politics — she accused him of being a sexist.

This is exactly the kind of thing that Americans dislike about politics. Far too many candidates cannot seem to run on the issues and give people positive reasons to support them.

There are just a few days left in this race so Ken Buck needs your help right now. His opponent has the support of Washington insiders, but Ken can win with the support of the American people.

Please make a contribution to his campaign today so he can increase his television buy this weekend and win this critical Senate race on Tuesday.

Thanks to supporters of SCF, we’ve already raised over $150,000, but we need to reach $175,000 to help push Buck over the top. It’s not important that you give a lot; it’s just important that you give something. If thousands of freedom-loving Americans pitch in, Buck will have the necessary funds to fight these attacks and win this primary.

If Ken Buck wins the primary and goes on to win in November, he will join a growing group of new Republicans in the Senate who will fight to take our country back.

Thank you for standing for conservative values and the principles of freedom.
