It is flying under the radar for many conservatives out there, but the NY-26 special election has serious national implications:
A win by the Democrat in this Republican district -- even if created by a phony Tea Party candidate siphoning off votes from the Republican-- will be spun as a major victory for Obama. You will hear nothing but how it signals Obama's turnaround, how it reflects Obama's new found popularity after the bin Laden kill, and how it signals unhappiness with Republicans.
You will not hear a word in the MSM about the fact that Davis is not a real Tea Party candidate, and instead this will further be portrayed as part of a schism in the Republican Party and reflecting how the Tea Party movement hurts Republicans.
Today Carl Paladino began campaigning for conservative Jane Corwin. Using his campaign email, he carpet bombed supporters this morning:
“I’m still mad as hell, but this time it’s because Jack Davis is lying,” Paladino wrote. “He flew in a company from California to get voters’ signatures and create a fake Tea Party line on the ballot for the May 24 Special Election for New York’s 26th Congressional District, despite being told that the Tea Party represents a movement, not a political party.”
If Jack Davis’ dream of a planned, centralized economy is not enough to convince you that he is fake tea…
He donated to liberal democrats during the health care debate, cap and trade vote, GM takeover and Obama stimulus bill. He was endorsed by the SEIU Working Families Party. He's adamantly against federal entitlement reform. His campaign manager is a well-known progressive consultant. He is mired in allegations of petition fraud and bribery.
Vote conservative, Jane Corwin and not the candidate who resembles Dede Scozzafava on steroids, Jack Davis.
