MORE BELOW THE FOLD….
Jeff Perry is both the most conservative and most electable candidate in the field. He has the strongest support from establishments Republican, Tea Party and Independent voters. Jeff Perry has a long and impressive list of endorsements including Mitt Romeny, Scott Brown, the most elected officials in the district and the most candidates in the district. Jeff Perry has the endorsements of the most conservative organizations including MCFL and the NRA, and the most Republican organizations.
Jeff Perry has the strongest and most recent history of electoral success. He was first elected by defeating an incumbent Democrat. In subsequent years, his victory margins have grown even during Democratic landslides.
Jeff Perry has the strongest campaign. In this election he has by far the most impressive political organization, the largest activist base and has raised the most money to defeat the Democrats in November. Jeff Perry currently has more than twice the cash on hand of all other Republican candidates combined. The overall enthusiasm gap between the Jeff Perry for Congress campaign and all others is huge and reminiscent of the Scott Brown campaign. Perhaps most impressively, virtually all of his campaigning has been positive and has not engaged in the negative politics of personal destruction against our own party.
Jeff Perry will make the best congressman. He already has a history of standing up for us against government taking over our health care decisions, against benefits and amnesty for illegal immigrants, against massive debts being passed on to the next generation. He has a proven history of standing on principle even when most Republicans do not.
Prediction (R): Perry 55%, Malone 40%, Kasperowicz 4%, Hayden 1%.
Prediction (D): Keating 55%, O’Leary 45%
Prediction – Gen: Perry 48%, Keating 47%, Others 5%
