LGTR Boosts Slate of Candidates - Focuses on Florida

Let's Get This RightBoston, MA - The National Leadership Team of Let's Get This Right, a coalition of conservative political activists, announced today the endorsement of four additional candidates for US Congress. The candidates are Congressman Vern Buchanan, (FL-13th), Ed Lynch, (FL-19th), Lt. Col. Allen West, U.S. Army (Ret.), (FL-22nd) and Dr. Marion Thorpe, MD. (FL- 23rd.)

The announcement was made on a conference call to reporters and bloggers with Co- Executive Directors Sheridan B. Folger and M. Brad Marston, National Political Director Dr. Bill Smith and Florida Political Director, Yomin Postelnik. Let's Get This Right has previously endorsed Congressman Gus Bilirakis, (FL-9th) for re-election as well as thirteen other candidates for the US House and Senate.

In announcing the endorsement Dr. Smith stated that all four candidates are "strong fiscal conservatives who espouse smaller government and market based solutions to issues such as healthcare and job creation."According to Mr. Postelnik, the decision to support these candidates was due to their commitment to ethics and to the community at large. Congressman Buchanan has been a pillar of fiscal and moral responsibility and Candidates West, Thorpe and Lynch represent platforms of true reform and have made tremendous inroads into minority and disadvantaged communities.

Mr. Folger noted that all had "been targeted by the Democratic National Congressional Committee for defeat." The DNCC has committed to significant television ad buys in these districts. Their Democratic opponents have also received "significant amounts of P.A.C. money from groups outside of Florida. "Supporting congressional candidates in key battleground states is a major part of our overall strategy of running a unified campaign at the grassroots/netroots level" added Mr. Marston.
