Huck PAC for Chuck for US Senate

Posted By CotoBlogzz 04-28-2010 11:30 AM

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Huck PAC, the political action committee of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, has endorsed Chuck DeVore in the race for the Republican nomination for United States Senate in California. Huck PAC is dedicated to supporting strong conservative candidates across the nation who will work to defend the unborn, limit government's size and scope, and bring integrity to high office and ". Its endorsement brings with it a thriving grassroots network that mobilizes from homes and communities to deliver activism and funds where they're needed most." said a DeVore campaign press release, responding to the endorsement.

The endorsement comes at a good time in the race, given that the POLDEX® - a political index showing relative name-recognition - released in early February shows: Boxer:100%, Carly: 65%, DeVore: 19% Campbell: 17%. Coupled with the Rassmussen Report showing a Carly-Boxer race too close to call.  We have also seen the DeVore message as diffused, mostly reacting to petty issues and or mocking the opposition, rather than advancing new initiatives to support conservativism:  As a reminder, we were one of the first, if not the only ones who thought that Boxer would be vulnerable more than one year ago, but we also predicted that ObamaCare would pass, at the time Charles Krauthammer,  an American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist and political commentator had it going down 60% to 30% - in other words, dismiss us at your own peril.

Governor Huckabee said, “Chuck DeVore has a clear pro-life record, with a 100% pro-life, pro-family rating from the Capitol Resource Institute in Sacramento and a 100% rating from the pro-life, conservative California Republican Assembly. We need people like Chuck Devore in the U.S. Senate because he’ll work to bring some common sense back to Washington.”

Chuck DeVore said, "I am truly honored to have the endorsement of Governor Huckabee and Huck PAC. The Governor and I share core values, not least of which is a rock-solid commitment to pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-growth policies. Support from Huck PAC's motivated network of grassroots activists will be essential in winning this primary -- and defeating Barbara Boxer in November."
