RLC Campaign Contributions [was "Re: Emailing: Mark_Sanford_Bio2_10-18-03"]
- Yes. You've outlined the tactics of the RLC spot-on.
Perhaps, with the temporary difficulties we have had with our newsletter,
we've been negligent in sufficiently advertising those candidates targeted
for coordinated support, but I believe they *have* been mentioned on these
e-groups. Perhaps someone with ready access to the complete list of
RLC-endorsed candidates them will repost them here; otherwise, I suspect
they may be found on our website. I encourage you to check them out and
join us in offering your most generous support, as you have suggested!
One RLC-endorsed candidate I can personally recommend is North Carolina's
own *Mike Harrison*, candidate for Buncombe County Commissioner (Asheville,
NC). Mike is a fellow RLC member and, as his "core beliefs" (attached
below) suggest, he is not afraid to run on the RLC philosophy of "Lower
Taxes, Less Government, and Personal Liberty". Mike finished second in the
GOP primary. He and the other top-four Republican finishers are competing
for the four Commission seats to be decided in the general election.

I hope this will constitute "action," and if not, I apologize.
Since many of us live in districts where neither the Republican nor Democrat
represent a truely libertarian point of view, it might be helpful to hear
about some liberty oriented Republicans in other districts and/or states,
such as the Congressional candidate from Louisiana (who's name escapes me at
the moment). I am not a wealthy man, but I do like to chip in when I
can--if not support, then at least a small bit of money. I would rather
give my money to a pro-liberty candidate in Louisiana than your typical
neocon in New Mexico. I feel I'd be better served by having more
pro-liberty congressmen in general, even if they aren't going to be from my
This might be an good use of the RLC--to serve as a clearing house for our
contributions and support. If a Republican candidate in any race knew that
an RLC endorsement carried with it donations from members across the
country, then it might help him make the tough choice to stick to his guns.
That said, it is useful for me to hear about candidates, events, and other
"actionable" items from around the US, even if they don't immediately seem
to impact me in New Mexico.
