Catching up with Sean Bielat at BlogCon

posted at 6:51 pm on April 21, 2012 by Morgen Richmond

Many of the nation’s top conservative bloggers are gathered in Charlotte this weekend for BlogCon 2012, and Peter Ingemi from DaTechGuy blog managed to grab a few minutes with Sean Bielat. Conservative hopes around the country were dashed in 2010 when the Big Red Wave was not quite big enough to enable Bielat to unseat Barney Frank in MA-04. But with Frank retiring at the end of this term, the ever-persistent, and congenial Bielat is giving it another shot. Here’s an early update on the status of his campaign:

If Bielat were running for ‘nicest guy’ in Massachusetts he would probably win in a landslide, but he’s facing off against a tough primary opponent in Dr. Elizabeth Childs, and then has the latest aspiring member of the Kennedy dynasty (Joseph Kennedy III) waiting in the wings for November. It will be another very challenging race. But for those of you who aren’t familiar with Bielat, he has more than a winning personality. He’s a former Marine Lieutenant and an experienced business leader with an MBA from Wharton and Masters in Public Policy from Harvard. Seriously. But as impressive as these credentials are, I’m sure Bielat would be quick to say that his most important achievements are the ones pictured below.

Bielat was a conservative favorite in 2010 and I am sure he would once again welcome your support.

Bielat is a good guy but he has no chance whatsoever.

Give exposure to Richard Tisey instead. He’s the only congressional candidate in MA who can actually win. He’s running against John Tirney in the new MA-6

Conservative hope were not “dashed”.
Bielat was left to fend for himself when his opponent was vulnerable.
The major right-wing blogs ignored him because they never thought Barney Frank could be beat.
It was a fight they were not willing to pick.

Let’s see who gives him some real support now.

Bielat is very impressive, but I am glad to have been redistricted out of the MA-4, I’m in the slightly more conservative Cape Cod district, which I believe is MA-9 now.

I live in Massachusetts and am a Republican. Sean Bielat is a pompous ass.

So do I, and so am I. And no, he’s not.

Minor correction FTR: It’s Tisei, not Tisey. And he’s fantastic. He’s got an excellent shot at Tierney’s seat.

Good thing I had a chance to read it first. Probably a wise decision on your part.
