Ken Buck

From Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund Newsletter of Mon, June 28, 2010:
Ken Buck continues to rise in the polls as Colorado voters learn about his conservative campaign to take our government back. Democrats ignored him for months but now they realize he’s the man to beat.

True to form, Democrats are now actively working to portray Ken Buck as an extreme candidate because he dared to tell the truth about the fiscal crisis facing Social Security.

It’s the same tactic liberals are trying to use against Sharron Angle in the race against Harry Reid in Nevada. These people will do whatever it takes to hold onto power — even if it means scaring seniors with blatant lies.

As I’ve said before, it’s not extreme to admit that Social Security will go bankrupt if it isn’t reformed. It’s telling the truth. Politicians have raided the program for years to pay for their pork projects and now there’s nothing but IOUs in the Social Security Trust Fund.

We need leaders like Ken Buck in the Senate who have the courage to stand up to the Washington establishment and tell it like it is.

The Senate Conservatives Fund is backing Ken Buck in the Colorado Senate race because he’s a rock-solid conservative who will fight for the principles of freedom that have made America great.

  • Ken Buck is the only candidate in this race who has consistently opposed job-killing tax increases. With our nation’s debt spiraling out of control, Democrats and many moderate Republicans believe the best way to balance the budget is to make you pay more of your hard-earned money. They’re wrong and Ken Buck will stop them if he’s elected.

  • Ken Buck is the only candidate in this race who will secure our nation’s borders. Ken strongly supports the rule of law and has an impressive record of reducing crime in his community as the District Attorney. He won’t go weak in the knees like those Republicans who support amnesty.
  • Ken Buck is the only candidate who is not being funded by the big-dollar Washington establishment that gave us the culture of earmarks, bailouts for failed banks, and $13 trillion in debt. It’s very important that Colorado elect a Senator who is independent and can think for themselves.
There are just 3 days left to contribute to our money bomb for Ken Buck’s Senate campaign in Colorado. We’ve raised $75,000 so far but we still have a ways to go to reach our $100,000 goal by Wednesday night.

I know there are a lot of candidates asking for support right now, but Ken Buck’s campaign in Colorado could be the most important of them all. Conservatives have a major opportunity to pick up a Senate seat in Colorado this year, but only if Ken Buck wins the primary election.

Ken Buck is leading his Republican primary opponent in the polls but not in fundraising. If we work together and help Ken post a big fundraising number this quarter, it will completely change the dynamic of this race.

Until now, the argument for supporting his opponent has rested entirely on her victory being inevitable. Now that she’s trailing in the polls, the only thing supporting this argument is that she has more money in the bank.

We need to take that argument away, and we need to do it right now.

We need to make sure Ken Buck has the resources he needs to get his message out and to defend himself from the outrageous attacks that are being leveled against him by both Republicans and Democrats.

This race is going to get dirty over the next few weeks as the Washington establishment seeks to derail another constitutional conservative. We must do everything we can to make sure they don’t succeed.

The future of our country is too important to sit back and watch. We need to be actively engaged in this race and do push Ken Buck on to victory.

Whoever wins the Republican primary will be in a strong position to win the general election in November. Let’s make sure we help Colorado Republicans elect a leader who is passionate about liberty and who will stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country.

Please make a contribution to Ken Buck’s campaign today and help secure another conservative victory this year.

Thank you for your commitment to freedom.
