Speaker Newt Gingrich Endorses John Colbert for Congress

/PRNewswire/ -- Congressional candidate John Colbert (R-29) today received the endorsement of House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I am pleased to enthusiastically endorse John Colbert to represent Californians in Congress. John is a free-market champion who understands and supports small business and the jobs they create," said Gingrich. "John Colbert's entrepreneurial experience is exactly what is needed on Capitol Hill right now," added Gingrich.

"John's presence in Congress will provide the common sense, innovative leadership and guidance needed to create jobs, reduce spending and cut taxes in order to promote the level of economic growth Americans are seeking," Gingrich concluded.

"Taking a business from a handful of employees to a multi-national, public company takes ingenuity, commitment and sound fiscal discipline," said Colbert. "I look forward to working equally hard in Congress putting forward real solutions for getting Americans back to work; incentivizing success and achievement, and cutting the red tape that is strangling small businesses and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow."

Colbert served in the United States Army where he received a meritorious service award. As a hard-charging LA County Sheriff Department Investigator, he worked complex white-collar crimes and established one of the world's first computer forensic crime labs. His Pasadena-based Guidance Software, Inc. specialized in putting the world's worst criminals behind bars, including well-known terrorists, child sexual criminals, corporate espionage and hacking attacks.

More on Angle vs Reid (via Political Wire)

Reid Takes Lead in Nevada

A new Las Vegas Review-Journal/Mason Dixon poll in Nevada shows Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has opened a strong lead over challenger Sharron Angle (R), 44% to 37%, "after pummeling her in a ubiquitous TV and radio ad campaign that portrays the Tea Party favorite as 'too extreme.""

Said pollster Brad Coker: "He's had five perfect weeks. The race has been all about her, and he's been doing a good job of pounding her."

This is the best Reid has done against Angle this year in a series of Mason-Dixon polls. Previously, the two had been locked in a statistical dead heat with Angle finishing just ahead of Reid in February, 44% to 42%, and in June, 44% to 41%, and Reid finishing just ahead of Angle in May, 42% to 39%.

These results also track another recent poll of the race.

Tea Party Express re: Angle vs Reid

A new poll shows Harry Reid taking a 7% lead over Sharron Angle (44%-37%) according to a new Las Vegas Review Journal/Mason-Dixon poll. This follows millions of dollars in advertising Reid has aired attacking Sharron Angle and calling her an "extremist" because of her conservative views.

The good news? These changing poll numbers have taken place BEFORE we here at the Tea Party Express have gone up on the airwaves. In fact, it was because of bad polling data that we realized we needed to actually raise MUCH MORE money before we could go up on the airwaves and fight back - if we were going to defeat Reid.

As you know, we here at the Tea Party Express asked for 100+ Americans to donate $500 or more to our campaign supporting Sharron Angle and opposing Harry Reid. So far 52 people have responded. We still need 48 more people to answer our call for help!

If you can help us by making a contribution of $500 or more to this effort then PLEASE make a contribution online right now - CLICK HERE to DONATE.

As we said, Barack Obama has been able to raise millions of dollars from labor unions and left-wing groups for Harry Reid. We urgently need your help to fight back.
Even if you can't afford to contribute $500 or more, but can only afford a contribution of $25 or $50 it will still help us get on the airwaves with our pro-Angle TV ads.
