Below please find a special message from our sponsor, National Conservative Campaign Fund. From time to time, we receive opportunities we believe you as a valued customer may want to know about.

I'm Erick Erickson, editor-in-chief of Red.State.com, an Eagle Publishing division. I hope you'll take a moment to read my message and take action.
The Republican Party establishment is making it clear that conservatives should give them money and then shut up.
Remember in 2006, when the GOP establishment spent millions to help Republican-in-name-only Sen. Lincoln Chafee (RI) turn back his conservative primary challenger – only to have Chafee lose in the fall (and then, like Arlen Specter, abandon the Republican Party)?
Don't forget last year, when the National Republican Congressional Committee canceled critically needed ad buys on behalf of some of the best conservatives in Congress, such as Reps. Tom Feeney (FL) and Marilyn Musgrave (CO), possibly costing them re-election.
And this year, the Republican Party gave Arlen Specter its full-throated support against conservative Pat Toomey until Specter jumped ship. Then, instead of supporting Toomey, the Republican party ran out to find a Specter clone – ignoring the conservative.
Friends, the Republican establishment's favoritism toward liberal candidates continues.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee just officially endorsed tax-hiking, affirmative action-loving liberal Florida Gov. Charlie Crist over conservative rising star Marco Rubio. Meanwhile, rumors are flying that the NRSC might soon do likewise in several other states.
I am sick and tired of the GOP taking my money and telling me to shut up while they spend my money on pro-abortion, big-spending tax hikers.
That's why I am giving to the National Conservative Campaign Fund (NCCF). I know my money will go to help elect real conservatives all across America. NCCF would never waste money on the likes of turncoats such as Chafee and Specter, or Charlie Crist.
Let's stop putting good money after bad. Let's support an organization that will back conservative candidates 100% of the time. Please send whatever you can afford to NCCF right now. I hope you'll be generous, but even a small amount helps. If we have any chance to stop the Obama-Pelosi-Reid march to socialism, it'll be when conservatives who value freedom and free markets over government "solutions" get elected to the House and Senate and fight back. NCCF is one group you can count on to help make it happen..
