Incumbent Backed Spanish Ballots and Bush Amnesty Proposal.
Contact: Brett Farley, Minuteman PAC In Defense of Our Sovereign Borders, 405-706-0936
MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Chris Simcox, honorary chairman of Minuteman PAC, tonight congratulated former State Representative Tim Walberg on what appears to be a ten point win over incumbent Congressman Joe Schwarz in tonight’s Republican Primary.
“Michigan sent Washington D.C. a message tonight that voters are fed up with coddling illegal aliens with government benefits and amnesty,” Simcox said. “Tim Walberg is a solid individual who will stand up for South Central Michigan voters concerned about the threat illegal immigration presents.”
“It’s clear that Joe Schwarz’s support for Spanish Language ballots, government benefits for illegal aliens, allowing towns to be sanctuaries for illegal aliens and worst, President Bush’s Amnesty proposal was a major factor in his overwhelming defeat tonight,” Simcox said.
Minuteman PAC spent nearly $50,000 on radio and cable TV ads throughout the district, including on expensive Detroit and Lansing stations, Simcox said. “I am proud that we were able to play a role in this successful campaign,” Simcox added, noting that the Republican Primary winner is the overwhelming favorite going into the November election in the solidly GOP 7th District.
Simcox said that efforts over the next seven days will now shift to Nevada’s Second Congressional District, where the Minuteman PAC is making a major effort to encourage Republican voters to nominate State Representative Sharron Angle to replace a retiring incumbent for the heavily Republican seat. The PAC has already spent more than $50,000 in the Nevada race, which covers Reno, Carson City and the rest of Nevada outside of the City of Las Vegas. The Nevada Primary is August 15th.
