Glenn Wilson Loses Campaign Manager

From the Michigan Messenger:

Glenn Wilson, a conservative candidate mounting a third-party bid for Bart Stupak’s seat in Congress from the 1st District of Michigan, has lost his campaign manager.

Rich Carlson resigned from the campaign and is accusing Wilson of violating a promise he made to drop out of the race if the polls showed he had little chance of winning so he would not split the conservative vote with Republican candidate Dan Benishek.

A press release from the Petoskey Tea Party said:

“We had an agreement that if we were not polling well, we would suspend the campaign,” stated Carlson in response to why he left. “I have been upset with the direction our country is headed and felt that Glenn was going to be an independent voice for Michigan, however, my main goal was and is to see a conservative victory in November.”

Carlson went on to say that the handshake agreement he had with Wilson to suspend the campaign in the event it looked as though votes would be taken away from the GOP candidate and the Dems would have a chance to keep the seat, was paramount to his coming on board.

“I want to see conservative values; Limited Government, Natural Rights, and Free Markets restored to the public and do not want to see more of the same runaway government by electing Gary McDowell. We tried to make a go of Wilson’s campaign and gain traction with the voters, but continuing the campaign is potentially doing more harm to taking our country back than I would like,” said Carlson.

Losing a campaign manager is never a good sign for a campaign. Nevertheless, Carlson’s reason for leaving does confirm that the has no intentions of prematurely abandoning the race. A recent McDowell internal had Wilson at 12%.

    Go Glen! This is awesome and should be done everywhere; rightists turning against the Republican Party and leftists staying with the Democrats. Then when Democrats wake up and stop their obsession with gay rights and abortion rights, the pro-choice centrists can move to the Republican Party.

    AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, “YEA FOR I BLESS GLENN WILSON AND HIS MIGHTY EFFORTS, AND RENEW THE CALL FOR YOURSELF, CATHOLIC TROTSKYIST, TO POST ON IPR FOR SO LONG AS IT REMAINS WORTHY TO BE THE NEW ISRAEL AND THE PLATFORM FOR DISSEMINATING THE TRUE PURPOSE OF OUR REVOLUTIONARY COMMANDER BARACK H. OBAMA, AMEN.”

    Associated Press Release

    Tea party-fueled Senate hopeful Rand Paul of Kentucky is the rare candidate who has run toward the plan.

    “The federal tax code is a disaster no one would come up with if we were starting from scratch,” Paul said in a written response to an anti-tax group.

    “I support making taxes flatter and simpler. I would vote for the ‘fair tax’ to get rid of the 16th Amendment, the IRS and a lot of the control the federal government exerts over us.”

    Other candidates are distancing themselves from ideas for changing the tax code, and Paul tempered his support on Thursday, saying any change is contingent on not raising taxes.
