Senate Conservatives Fund Step 1: Defeat Red State Democrats

By  | 

Fellow Conservatives:

President Obama addressed the nation last night and proposed more plans to grow the government and reduce our personal freedoms. He’s attacking liberty on multiple fronts to distract and demoralize us. I’m writing to encourage you to stay focused and to direct your frustration with this president toward impacting the mid-term elections. If we work together, we can win several Senate races and stop Obama’s agenda.

The first step to winning a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate is to defeat the Democrats in red states where we know a majority of voters support the principles of freedom that make this country great.

We’re all interested in our home state elections, but changing the Senate requires us all to look beyond the senators we hear about in our local news and work together to win battleground races across the nation.


Democrats are defending Senate seats in seven states that President Obama lost in 2012. These seats are in Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia.

There are many other races that hold promise and we won’t write any of them off, but the races in these seven states offer us the best opportunities to replace liberals with conservatives.

We must do two things to win these seats:

(1) Define the liberal incumbents.

The Democratic incumbents in these red states are vulnerable and they know it. It’s why one of them — U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) — has already given up and announced his retirement.

The rest are trying to quickly reinvent themselves in the eyes of the voters. These liberals know that if they say they’re “moderate” enough times, people will begin to believe it.

We can’t let that happen. 

Here are the six Democrats still running in red states who must be defined, defeated, and ultimately replaced with principled conservatives:

  • MARK BEGICH – Alaska
  • MARK PRYOR – Arkansas
  • MARY LANDRIEU – Louisiana
  • MAX BAUCUS – Montana
  • KAY HAGAN – North Carolina
  • TIM JOHNSON – South Dakota

Many of these Senators are nice people and may even have the best of intentions, but the policies they support are destroying this country and it’s up to us to move them into a different line of work.

With your help, SCF will identify their weakness and survey voters to see which messages resonate most. Then we’ll begin educating voters about their liberal records.

You can help by making a contribution to the Senate Conservatives Fund today so we can defeat these vulnerable Democrats.

(2) Recruit conservative challengers.

The next few months are probably the most important of the entire election cycle. If we find good conservative challengers, we’re in the game. But if we don’t, we will likely get stuck with moderate Republicans who either can’t win or won’t fight for our principles if they do.

The Republican establishment is already looking for candidates in each of these battleground states. They know that the quicker they find someone and start raising money for them, the harder it will be for conservatives to nominate an alternative.

We’re talking to many prospective candidates right now and will do everything we can to recruit exceptional people to fight for America’s future.

Your support for the Senate Conservatives Fund is the best weapon we have in the battle to flip these seats from liberal to conservative. It helps us define liberal incumbents and recruit outstanding challengers. The stronger we are now, the more likely we’ll be able to win next year.

Please chip in $100, $50, or whatever you can, to help SCF jump-start its campaign to elect a conservative majority in the Senate.

Thank you for being willing to fight for America’s future.

Best regards,

Matt Hoskins
