Another GOP Establishment Candidate Bites the Dust After U.S. Chamber of Commerce Support

Georgia Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue

Georgia Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue

Businessman David Perdue, an outsider who had never before ran for public office, the former CEO of Dollar General and Reebok, narrowly defeated GOP establishment-backed career politician Jack Kingston in Georgia’s U.S. Senate runoff on Tuesday.

Perdue’s victory advances him to the general election in November, in which he’ll face Democrat Michelle Nunn, who’s hoping to benefit from her retired father, long-time former Senator Sam Nunn. 

As with Eric Cantor’s amazing loss to newcomer Dave Brat in Virginia, the race turned into a focus on amnesty and Perdue brilliantly used Kingston’s financial support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to his advantage. 

“Jack Kingston’s pro-amnesty vote is bought and paid for,” said the Perdue ad that was blasted on Georgia airwaves in the days leading up to the runoff election on Tuesday. 

The ad blasted Kingston for taking $3 million from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the organization that was previously for free markets, but now is referred to as the “Chamber of Crony Capitalism,” by popular radio talk show host, Mark Levin. 

“Kingston’s largest backer, who has pumped nearly $3 million into Kingston TV ads is 100% openly pro-amnesty,” the ad says, referring to Kingston’s support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 

The U.S. Chamber has been a fervent advocate for amnesty, desirable of low labor costs available from hiring illegal aliens, albeit at the expense of American workers. In December the U.S. Chamber announced that they’d formed a big-moneyed coalition with establishment Republican Karl Rove to join Democrats in attacking conservative Tea Party candidates who are against crony capitalism, but who support free markets. 

“Nobody believes that the Founding Fathers ever imagined the rise of the career politician. I think a lot of people are coming onto that bandwagon,” Perdue said in victory.

Here’s the ad that had a devastating effect on Kingston’s campaign, paving the way to Perdue’s victory in Georgia.

  1. Good, but I wish the democrats were as eager to get rid of the career politicians that they keep voting back in. Harry Reid, Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi come to mind.

    1. The Democratic part u is all about power and control. The Democratic part first, country second.

    2. …and all about “Free” stuff. They are so ignorant, or so cynical and willfully corrupt, that they don’t even consider that SOMONE has to earn all that “Free” stuff that the government confiscates and re-distributes.

    3. But they have no PRIDE so they take it anyway because it is offered to certain low class people with no morals… We have a low class of people in this country that will not work . And it is growing to nearly double under this Obama regime..

    4. You have to have an ounce of integrity first… which Democrats seem to have problems with. I have yet to hear of Democrats “cleaning house” on corruption in their own party. Instead, they double-down and continue supporting corrupt candidates.

    5. That is so true. I can’t find a democrat who has an ounce of integrity on the issue of corruption. All they do is find some corrupt republican and say, “see, republicans are just as bad.”

  2. yea awesome until about 3 yrs in office then just like everybody else! DC eats your soul and steals your morals.

    1. Aint that the truth… what happened to all those high minded TEA party types that won in 2010 and were going to change things? they all got brainwashed into the same corrupt thinking as everyone else in Washington… swallowed alive.

    2. Not all of them! Ted Cruz and Lee plus a few others have stood very strong in some very hot heat!

    3. We need more TEA PARTY people in the WH. A few can help and they have but more could make a big difference… Yes they are there and they are fighting for us… If it were not for the TP people in Congress and Senate Nothing would be getting done for us..We must support them and stand behind them and encourage them and not complain that they are doing nothing.. They are NOW a few and a FEW does not have a lot of leverage out of 500 .. Lets send more so they can join forces and turn things around…

  3. This is a harbinger of what is to come. You will see many Obama supporters “flip-flop” now just to maintain their position. It’s important we replace ALL OF THESE PEOPLE, no questions asked. Give them ALL the boot. They are all CRONIES who caved in under Obama’s spell. Obama the American traitor.

    1. There is no safe way to vote Democratic. The Republicans are bad enough and also need to be changed. But not at the risk of electing democrats. This was the perfect outcome the incumbent lost in the Primary. Just how the system is supposed to work. PERFECT. But the “runoff” elections need to be stopped. I see these as incumbent protection laws. Passed by incumbents of course. If someone wins then let them be the candidate giving the political machine a second chance is a mistake.

    2. Kingston wasn’t the incumbent in this case, just a RINO member of the House of Representatives. The incumbent Saxbe Chambliss is retiring meaning this is an open seat that must be maintained.

    4. like

    5. RINOs are Democrapts! However, any Conservative who signs the new Contract with America is a friend of mine! However, don’t just vote for an “R”! If a Democrapt will sign the new Contract with America and the Candidate is like Cochran then I would vote for the Democrapt probably because I don’t trust anyone who chooses an R or D over their Civilians!!
      God Bless America and keep the pressure on these idiots but remember don’t vote party but principles, ours and theirs, and if neither candidate is worthy then sign in None Of The Above!
      God Bless America but not RINOs or DINOs= Political Class! No more giveaways and it is time to takeaway their special Privileges! Like insider trading, getting 70% of their Healthcare Insurance paid for , and judges chosen for their biullcrap Ideology! Wake up and keep fighting! God is great and he does Bless America!

    1. You and I think alike, Chuck. Wish more conservatives would stop thinking “lesser of two evils” at the polls. That’s how Romney got so many conservative votes..they GREATLY distrusted him..but still voted.. WHY????? I stopped the madness when the GOP shoved yet ANOTHER RINO down our throats..I complied for McCain but I REFUSED when Romney was up….they can STICK it! Yeah..yeah..I know..NOT voting for the RINO is a vote for the democrat..well ya know what?? The madness has to STOP! You’re fueling the fat cats FIRE when you bow to their elitist pressure. You aren’t helping AMERICA when you do it..you’re simply keeping the GOP in their cushy lifestyles of which they’ve grown very fond of….

    2. Follow the lead of Australia! They have chosen a Reaganisk type of man! Already telling the Global Warming crowed to take their false data and shove it! ObamaTheArse actually asked how deeaahp, what, how deep after enjoying it!
      God Bless America and her Citizens!

  4. Let’s support this fresh candidate, and put a stop to the subversives trying to take over America.

  5. Term Limits would be a major improvement for our political system. So many of these “representatives” are (1) completely out of touch with real America, (2) corrupted by long-term participation in slimy favor-exchanges, (3) operating in their own self interest, (4) shielded/exempted from their laws and regulatory actions.

  6. Our electoral process gives term limits-voting them out of office. The sad thing is that people keep voting for the same sad, corrupt candidates time after time.

  7. This race was not as cut and dried as it might seem. The local TEA Party where I live didn’t support Perdue, and the local radio hosts, were split too. The runoff was nasty, and armed the Democrat with ready-made opposition research. We had hoped for a clean runoff race, but it soon turned nasty and personal.
    BTW, any word on how Dave Brat is doing now? I wonder if the TEA Party is going underground, so as not to detract form candidates.

    1. The TEA Party doesn’t detract! That’s the Lame Stream Media talking and writing that junk with the assistance of the Political Class and the US Chamber of Commerce, they wanted these attacks and it started with the Government Shutdown which was our final chance at stopping Obamacare and the House needs to get tough even without the Senate! My God they OWN THE PURSE STRINGS!! It has backfired and now let’s see what happens in the real world come November 2014!
      God Bless America!

  8. Guess the GOP could’nt steal that one for their man, like they did down in MS.

    The “subversives” already are running America, they are called “Democrats” and “Republicans” its time for regular old Americans, constitution and freedom loving Americans to take control away from these sleezeballs… RETIRE THEM ALL.

  9. Once the GOP starts running out of money, they will support the Tea Party again. It will be fake, but the will support it again.

    1. Their GRASSROOTS COFFERS are empty! They have plenty from big Corporations and the US Chamber of Commerce but not from the people who vote too! This is a great sign that people are getting it! They attempted to blame their losses on the IRS Scandal and fear but we know the truth and so does Preibus and the rest!! As a matter of fact I keep sending their stuff back with a Senate Conservatives Fund sticker which reads, ” SORRY! I MAKE MY CANDIDATE CONTRIBUTIONS THROUGH THE SENATE CONSERVATIVES FUND”
      God Bless America!

  10. I didn’t like the mud slinging of either one of them, but we can’t let Nunn get in office she is Obama all over.

  11. 2 things

    1. “an outsider who had never before ran for public office”….it’s run not ran. Come on, this is grammar 101.

    2. He’s hardly an outsider. He’s related to former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue.

    1. Keller, you should give a ‘Like’ to the typochondriac page. It is meant for folks like you.

  12. The primary focus must be on ending the MONARCHY of Obama. Reid must be
    demoted in November. It is the only hope to save the country. A vote for a Democrat
    is a vote for monarchy. Wake Up America.

  14. I just hope this guy is as conservative as he claims. Too often they get elected and then join the ranks of the pocket liners.

  15. Enough Kingstons – Enough Nunns. Time for some new new names, new faces & new ideas in Congress!

  18. This is the first time I heard the conservative won. All through the election there was very little differentiation between the two candidates. I hope he beats that ditz Nunn.
