Chelene Nightingale, a candidate for Governor of California under the banner of the American Independent Party, spent the weekend campaigning at the California Eagle Forum, which was held in San Diego with over 350 attendees. The Eagle Forum is an organization of non-partisan conservatives headed by Phyllis Schlafly. This article describes the event’s happenings:
Also attending and speaking at the Conservative forum were California Senatorial candidate Chuck DeVore, local San Diego sheriff candidate Jay LaSuer and two gubernatorial candidates – independent Chelene Nightingale and Republican Larry Naritelli, who both resonated with the conservative crowd more than the two leading contenders; billionaire Republicans Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner.
The article then goes on to state that the big shock of the weekend was Tom Tancredo’s endorsement of Chelene Nightingale.
Nightingale has only one opponent in the AIP gubernatorial race, Markham Robinson. Other individuals appearing at the convention include Michelle Bachmann, Orly Taitz, Duncan Hunter Sr., and James O’Keefe.

Former Congressman Republican Tom Tancredo Endorses Nightingale for Governor
Los Angeles, CA – California’s number one blog site, Californiality, recently stated that “the Chelene Nightingale for Governor Campaign is anything but dull.” The campaign’s latest endorsement continues to prove that the Nightingale for Governor Campaign continues to create interest and excitement in an otherwise pedestrian campaign.
Although the two main Republican Gubernatorial candidates make claims about being allies of voters who demand secure borders, America’s leading voice for border security, former Colorado Congressman, Tom Tancredo, has opted to cross party lines and endorse Chelene Nightingale for Governor of California.
Tancredo, who continues to be the nation’s acknowledged leader in the battle against illegal immigration and amnesty and for secure borders declare, “California is on the edge of a political and financial abyss. It is desperately in need of leadership that does not come out of the ’let’s do it the way it has always been done and expect things to be different’ school for politicians. Chelene Nightingale went to the college of constitutional principles instead and graduated at the head of her class. It’s a school all Americans should attend, or at least elect leaders who did.”
Chelene Nightingale has been one of California’s leading activists for the cause of secure borders and against amnesty for illegal aliens for the past several years. Chelene met Mr. Tancredo in Washington DC back in 2007 while lobbying on these issues as a private citizen. “Since Tom spent his career on Capitol Hill, he truly understands the dangers and damaging effects that open borders have on our nation’s sovereignty and security. Our team is humbly honored with this prestigious endorsement,” enthused Nightingale.
The 2010 Nightingale Campaign has also been honored with endorsements by the Constitution Party National Committee, Chuck Baldwin, G. Edward Griffin, the National Veterans Coalition, and many others. http://www.nightingaleforgovernor.com/pages/Endorsements.html
