Rightroots Expands The Slate

The Rightroots initiative has added new candidates to the slate of Republican candidates whose races have critical import for control of Congress in the midterm elections. The group has added Michael Bouchard, a candidate for Debbie Stabenow's Senate seat in Michigan, as well as Ralph Norman (SC-05) and Andrea Lane Zinga (IL-17) in the House. We hope to have the same success in raising funds for their contests as we have with our original eighteen candidates. Robert Bluey introduces the candidates at Human Events:

All three are locked in races they can win, but they need your help.

In the case of Bouchard and Norman, they're both challenging incumbent Democrats whose liberal views have led them astray. In Michigan, Sen. Debbie Stabenow has earned the nickname "Do Nothing Debbie." She has a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 11% -- far from the mainstream in Michigan. Spratt, meanwhile, has a lifetime ACU rating of 25%. We're left asking ourselves how this liberal can still possibly be representing a district in conservative South Carolina.

Andrea Lane Zinga is running for an open seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Lane Evans (D.). Not only is she keeping pace with Democrat Phil Hare, but she's also embraced new media, featuring a blog on her campaign website.

In fact, we're challenging our readers to add 100 more donations of any amount to our candidate before September 20. Now more than ever we need to show our resolve in supporting the candidates who will deliver on our agenda for national security, economic growth, and responsible government. We want Republican leadership to continue to guide Congress during this war on Islamic terror.

Be sure to visit the Rightroots page and help elect Republicans in these key midterm races.
