There are special elections and primaries occurring now prior to the 2016 election cycle. I found out from a Conservative Campaign Committee PAC that a Tea Party Republican running against an Establishment Republican candidate won in the Kentucky Gubernatorial Primary by 83 votes.
Kentucky businessman and tea-party favorite Matt Bevin surprised the media Tuesday night by winning the Kentucky Republican gubernatorial primary, edging out James Comer, the state’s agriculture commissioner, by 83 votes.
Mr. Comer has sought a recanvass of the results, and a final tally is due next week. But whatever the outcome, there is one big message out of the Kentucky race: If you are an establishment GOP candidate, don’t sleep on the tea party. (Tea Party Wins Kentucky Primary But Bigger Challenge Awaits; By DANTE CHINNI; Washington Wire Blog – WSJ; 5/22/15 6:58 am ET)
The WSJ blog author Dante Chinni pens the similar sentiments of other Mainstream Media outlets reasoning that Bevin’s victory was based on low voter turn-out. Chinni then cites a WSJ/NBC poll that only 20% had a favorable opinion of the Tea Party Movement. The problem I have with the WSJ/NBC data is that anything associated with NBC is often slanted toward the uber-Left. So I have to ask, “Who exactly was involved in taking the poll?” And, “Was the poll even taken from among likely Kentucky voters in relation to the Bevin-Comer Primary?” AND in reality who is to say a higher voter turn-out would have meant a higher margin of victory for Matt Bevin over James Comer?
At any rate the CCC PAC email announcement as expected was an announcement to garner donations for another special election in Illinois District 18 between Republicans Tea Party Mike Flynn and Establishment Darin LaHood.
As usual I am neither encouraging nor discouraging you to donate to the CCC PAC because more than likely other Tea Party organizations will be requesting donations as well. On the other hand you should do the research and which Conservative best uses its donation process in supporting that which you support.
One thing is certain about CCC PAC and other Conservative organizations devoted to the Election 2016 cycle is the info disseminated to the public will be closer to reality than the MSM info. If a Tea Party Conservative is doing well, Tea Party & Conservative organization will tell you and ask for the donations to keep streaming in to keep the momentum rolling. If the Candidate is struggling the donations solicited will tell you more money is needed to offset Leftist and Establishment GOP propaganda. With that bit of revelation below you are about to read the CCC PAC cross post of email sent.
Huge Victory for the Tea Party

The Wall Street Journal has the report on the great news for the Tea Party movement – as we scored a major victory when Conservative Republican Matt Bevin bested his establishment opponent by 83 votes in the Kentucky Republican Primary for Governor.
Now we have another important battle we must win: the Special Election for Congress in IL-18 where Conservative Republican hero Mike Flynn is taking on the establishment’s candidate, Darin LaHood.
We are so excited about Conservative Republican Mike Flynn’s campaign for Congress. Mr. Flynn was a close confidant of the late Andrew Breitbart. Serving as editor of BigGovernment.com he helped educate and inform conservatives about the rampant push for Big Government by liberals, the media and the occasional misguided Republican.
Now Mike Flynn is running for Congress and he needs our immediate support.
To help us launch our ad campaigns and Get Out The Vote efforts, we still need 92 more conservatives to step forward and make a contribution of $100 or more. The reason? Advertising rates, and the costs of printing campaign materials and running Get Out The Vote efforts are significant, and our opponent in the race is backed by a liberal PAC which receives it’s funding from well-financed labor unions.
Mike Flynn is an accomplished constitutional conservative who has been endorsed by conservative leaders such as Erick Erickson of RedState.com and conservative radio host Dana Loesch.
More About This Important Special Election
You’ve probably seen Mike Flynn’s appearances on cable news outlets such as Fox News Channel and read his columns and reports on Breitbart.com.

A major battle has emerged between our Conservative Republican candidate, Mike Flynn (a close friend and associate of the late Andrew Breitbart) and Darin LaHood, son of Barack Obama’s Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood.

While conservatives are lining up to support Mike Flynn, Darin LaHood received the maximum-allowed contribution from the union-funded Main Street Partnership, who has been described as having the sole purpose “is to attack conservatives in primaries.”
National Review reports that this election will be a critically important battle between constitutional conservatives of the Tea Party movement and the corrupt political establishment that keeps growing government, expanding out deficits and compromising our personal liberties:
