AZ Republican Candidate Pamela Gorman: Conservative to The Core

Conservatives would do well to remember that not all Republicans are on the tea-party team regardless of what they say in public.  For example, Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell is quietly traveling the country and raising funds to support non-tea-party candidates.

Former Arizona State Sen. Pamela Gorman is exactly the kind of candidate real conservatives are looking for, yet some in the GOP leadership (i.e., the big-spenders and social liberals) are apparently saying that if a contributor's name appears on Gorman's donor list, their names will be mud. Manipulation and snobbery at its worst! Ben Quayle, an "establishment" GOP candidate, has so far raised $700,000 to Gorman's $28,000.

Wouldn't it be sweet justice, and send a message to the Republican establishment, if campaign donations poured in from across state lines? If you feel so inclined, you can donate to Gorman here. Please give what you can.

Tea-party fave 'under fire' in primary
Palin-like Republican 'aims' to beat GOP establishment
By Drew Zahn,

Like Sarah Palin, former Arizona State Sen. Pamela Gorman is a Christ-professing, gun-toting firebrand who took on the Republican Party establishment in her state and who is now under fire – both by her party's leadership and by a mocking media.
A tea-party favorite, Gorman's resumé reads like a conservative wish list: endorsed by Arizona Right to Life, Arizona Tea Party and Concerned Women for America; boasting a 100-percent rating from the National Rifle Association and a 100-percent pro-life rating from Arizona Right to Life PAC; pledging herself to efforts to repeal government-run health care and pledging to assert Israel's "historic right" to live in its land; praised by the presidents of Americans for Tax Reform and National Taxpayers Union; on record as a sponsor of Arizona's controversial SB 1070, which requires state police to assist federal officials in illegal immigration enforcement; even garnering an endorsement by WND columnist Pat Boone:

"I'm a direct descendant of Daniel Boone, so you could say I know a 'straight shooter' when I see one," Boone is quoted as saying on Gorman's campaign website. "I proudly endorse Pamela Gorman for Congress."
Gorman told WND the GOP establishment has "made it known" on the streets in Arizona that if a contributor's name appears on her donor rolls, their name "is mud."
