Sue Lowden: Hot Air exclusive interview

posted at 11:36 am on October 30, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier this morning, I had an exclusive interview with Sue Lowden, a Republican legislator from Nevada who wants a chance to run against Harry Reid in the 2010 midterms. Sue has an impressive resume, having been an owner of a small business, a political activist, and an impressive officeholder. She wants to bring Nevada back to its independent-conservative roots, which she says Harry Reid has long forgotten in his years in the Senate. Instead of going on the attack, though, Sue explains that she wants to focus on her political accomplishments and philosophy to allow Nevadans to become acquainted with her — as they increasingly grow disenchanted with Reid:

Sue makes an impressive case, although she does have to win a Republican primary first, against Danny Tarkanian, among others. As long as the Republicans remain focused on Reid, we should see a good candidate emerge from that process made stronger by the initial challenge. Be sure to check Sue’s website over the next couple of weeks while she expands her policy views and gets girded for the fight.

By the way, be sure to get all the way through to the end of the interview to hear why she may be uniquely qualified to knock out the Senate Majority Leader.

I will not support anyone named Tarkanian simply because his father was one of the most disreputable crooks who ever lived when he coached basketball at UNLV. Let the Ron Paul apes have Danny Tarkanian. It will only get them another term of Harry Reid.

So, you’re okay with the “Sins of the Father” doctrine? Just so’s you know apes is a reserved MUSLIM word to describe JEWS. Friendly note for the future, avoid any semblance of the religion of peace.

Go to her website and you will see a video of how in her youth she was Miss New Jersey and runner up to Miss America. Sounds like her values are OK, but don’t like the pictures with Romney and McCain. I’d be a bit concerned that she will turn out like one of them. Has either Tarkanian or Lowden shown up or supported a tea party in Nevada?

Sharron Angle is worth your consideration in this race against Reid. Harry will have NO ammunition against her, and Sharron is a straight shooter – literally and figuratively!

Very strong fiscal and social conservative, 4 terms as NV Assemblywoman, and in 2006 lost in GOP primary in 2nd Congressional district against Dean Heller by only 400 votes. Heller was the incumbent Sec. of State at.

Sharron is famous for being the ONLY vote in the NV Assembly in 2003 against a huge tax increase. Her vote drew so much attention that the governor vetoed it, and the veto STUCK. Talk about a leader!

BONUS: she has no ties to casinos or unions or the NV Bar Assoc.

She was the first out strong against illegal immigration in 2006, which was why I volunteered to be her campaign pilot. (District 2 is the biggest district among states that have multiple districts – it is the whole state except PARTS of Las Vegas!)

Check out Sharron Angle in this race. She just announced this month. No baggage. String fiscal and social conservative.

fred5678 on October 30, 2009 at 10:42 PM

String STRONG fiscal and social conservative. And zero tolerance for amnesty for illegal aliens.

She has no need to invent positions on the issues – always been the same.

Missing GOP ballots counted in Nev. after months

A group of disaffected Republicans says it feels vindicated after a Friday night count of missing ballots from the April 2008 gathering showed three delegates for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul should have been sent to the national convention.

The count showed Paul delegate Robert Terhune won the most votes in the 2nd Congressional District, with 288. Paul supporters Marla Criss and Pat Kerby had 283 votes each.

Paul supporters blame then-state GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden for the state convention flap and hope to make it an issue in the U.S. Senate race.

I suppose Lowden’s unethical shenanigans against the Paultards is a plus for some…
