With the Wisconsin recall election just a week away, Tea Party candidate Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch is under assault by Big Labor activists and viciously misogynist progressive operatives (excuse the redundancy). Her unforgivable crime? She’s a solid fiscal conservative whose dedication to job growth, business development, and fiscal discipline has union radicals wetting their pants.
Gov. Scott Walker has a multimillion dollar war chest and is expected to win the recall election. But Kleefisch, who beat the Republican establishment pick in her bid for lieutenant governor, doesn’t have super-size GOP contributions pouring into her campaign coffers. And she’s up against well-funded union boss Mahlon Mitchell.
That’s why grassroots conservatives have declared today #Rally4Rebecca day. Donate to Kleefisch’s campaign fund during today’s fundraiser, spread the word, and participate in the hashtag conservative activists launched last night:
In her column this week, Michelle Malkin describes one of the many vile attacks intended to beat back and silence this competent, accomplished candidate:
When lefty Wisconsin radio host John “Sly” Sylvester accused Kleefisch of performing “fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee” and sneered that she had “pulled a train” (a crude phrase for gang sex), feminists remained silent.
While the AFL-CIO spends big bucks to oust Kleefisch and install her union boss opponent, Beltway insiders—and even conservative activists—are largely unaware of her battle to stay in office.
Outside of Wisconsin, most conservative activists are not even aware that she may be booted from office for simply doing her job. Kleefisch told me that on a recent fundraising swing in D.C., national GOP leaders were shocked to learn of her plight.
In a Facebook note, Sarah Palin makes a strong case for why it’s so important to #Rally4Rebecca.
Worse than seeing radical Leftists attack and make things up about a Conservative female opponent is when supporters on the Right sit on their thumbs and act as if there’s nothing they can do to help. Come on! When all else fails you can at least tell the truth! Tell other voters why you supported Rebecca in the first place. Explain her campaign promises and how she has stuck to them and – surprising in today’s political world – is actually fulfilling them. She promised to help balance the budget, cut taxes, build a sound fiscal environment, and provide job opportunities for all Wisconsin residents – not only our union brothers and sisters. She’s setting an example for every other state in the union because responsible state and local governments will be the entities that defend our Republic at a time when there is less and less reason to believe our big centralized federal government will address its self-perpetuated economic problems.
As Sarah Palin once said, it’s time to fight like a girl.
Rebecca Kleefisch coined the phrase “Wisconsin is Open for Business,” and with your help, she can keep Big Labor from slamming those doors shut.
Use the power of social media to raise awareness about the challenges Kleefisch faces. Tweet your support using the #Rally4Rebecca hashtag. Write blog posts, leave comments, and give what you can to beat back Big Labor and ensure Rebecca Kleefisch wins the Wisconsin recall fight.
