Two Congressional Candidates to Watch This November

At the Freedom Works get-out-the-vote event last Friday night, several conservative luminaries inspired the audience with their speeches.  Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), Freedom Works chairman Dick Armey and pastor-turned-Tea Party activist C. L. Bryant delivered rousing red meat remarks.

The show stealers, though, were two congressional candidates vying to become part of the freshman class of 2010.  Charles Lollar is a Maryland businessman, Major in the Marine Corps Reserves and Republican nominee to challenge House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD).  Lollar’s easy smile and personable air are making him a rising star in GOP circles, even if he fails to unseat the multi-term incumbent.

Morgan Philpot is another candidate to watch.  A former member of the Utah legislature, Philpot is known for holding a copy of the U.S. Constitution in one hand and the Communist Manifesto in the other on the floor of the Utah House of Representatives.  Before voting on a bill he asks his colleagues to which of the two documents the proposed bill moves the Utah body politic.

CFIF will be keeping an eye on these two candidates in the run-up to the November midterm elections.  Check back for updates.

Bachmann’s “House Call” in Opposition to ObamaCare

Last week, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) called on the American people to join her in making a “House Call” against the passage of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s 1,990-page government-run health care plan. 

The event, which is intended to emulate the effective August tea parties, takes place tomorrow at noon.  It will begin with a rally featuring actor Jon Voight and Mark Levin on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.  Following the rally, participants will descend on Congressional offices to lobby against the legislation.

Appearing yesterday on Fox and Friends, Bachmann labeled this week the “Super Bowl of Freedom.” 

“The American people need to stand up again and make sure that Congress hears them this time. Speaker Pelosi is putting her bill on fast track to a vote…” said the Congresswoman.  “The people need to make a House Call on Washington this week and tell their Representatives to vote no to a government take-over of one-fifth of our economy. This is gangster government at its worst.”

Watch the full Fox and Friends interview below:


It’s crunch time, folks.  House Democrats have scheduled a vote on Pelosi’s government-run health care bill for this Saturday.  Join Rep. Bachmann and thousands of concerned Americans in making a “House Call” against ObamaCare.

If you are not in the Washington, D.C.-area and are not able to attend this important event, please be sure to call your Representative in Congress and demand he or she vote “No!”  Call today, call tomorrow, then call again on Friday and Saturday.  Get your friends and family to do the same.  We must light up the telephone switchboards in Congressional offices in opposition to ObamaCare.
