the elkhart truth endorses jack jordan

Jack Jordan

Full article in The Elkhart Truth.

Jack Jordan, teaches in the school of business and economics at Indiana University South Bend. He has a background in business, health care and international economics. He’s also a member of the Bremen school board.

Jordan will work to build effective coalitions. In that sense, he’s reminiscent of U.S. Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd.

While he and Walorski hold similar views on the economy and health care, Jordan is intelligent and thoughtful. A flame burns inside him. He understands the urgency of the moment, but unlike Walorski, he doesn’t allow his emotions to overtake him.

That makes Jordan a potential power broker in Washington — a power broker on behalf of the people who live and work in the 2nd District.

So, for that reason, we endorse Jack Jordan in Tuesday’s Republican primary.

Dear Campaign Team –

Sadly, our opponent continues to exaggerate endorsements!

Exaggerated Endorsements:

#1 – NRA Endorsement: I’m a Lifetime Member of the NRA and a strong proponent of protecting our second amendment rights.  Therefore, I was deeply disappointed by our opponent’s misrepresentation of this fine organization and falsely claiming the NRA was endorsing her over me.  The title on the very front page of the South Bend Tribune today, “NRA Scolds Walorski Over Press Release.” Source:  South Bend Tribune, May 1, 2010  http://www.southbendtribune.com/article/20100430/News01/100439934/1129/News

#2 – 4 Group Endorsements: Last week our opponent had a press conference with 4 individuals and then issued a press release stating that 4 groups had endorsed her.  Unfortunately, that was a misrepresentation of the facts.  The truth was that the 4 individuals (not even the top leader of each of these groups) stated their public support for her.  Following is from the Elkhart Truth reporter who attended the event and then our opponent’s press release:

Elkhart Truth, April 23, 2010 by Josh Weinhold:

“…The members of many of the tea party movement groups voted to not endorse candidates this year, leaders said. Thus, the endorsements do not represent the groups’ official approval…”

The title and first paragraph of our opponent’s official Facebook Press Release.   Exaggerating and explicitly stating endorsements from the groups:

Stand with Jackie: Local Tea Party, Taxpayer Groups Endorse Walorski

Local Tea Party, Taxpayer Groups Endorse Walorski

Friday, April 23, 2010 at 12:45pm

(Elkhart, IN) – Leaders from local Tea Party and taxpayer groups today announced their endorsement for Republican 2nd Congressional District Candidate Jackie Walorski. Groups making official endorsements of Jackie’s candidacy were Citizen’s for Common Sense, the St. Joe County Tea Party Patriots, Concerned Citizens of Michiana, and the Tea Party of Michiana Action Coalition.

#3 – On the lighter side: Our opponent did get the endorsement of Mike Pence.  But as I talked with Mike face-to-face last week, he sheepishly revealed that he had promised Jackie months before I got into the race that he would support her when she ran.  He felt it was important that he keep his promise to her.   He said, however, he has followed our race closely and is extremely impressed with our campaign.  Mike then went on to say that if we win in November that he looks forward to working with me in the U.S. Congress beginning in January!

Lastly, reminding you again of the absolute importance of voting in this upcoming Tuesday, May 4th Republican Primary along with urging your family members and friends to get out and vote for Jack Jordan (to ultimately replace Joe Donnelly in the U.S. Congress).  Voter turn-out will win this race for us!

With sincere appreciation for all your help and support,

Urgent jack jordan campaign update

Dear Campaign Team,

Respectfully asking for your help in 2 areas:

#1 – The absolute importance of voting this upcoming Tuesday in the Republican Primary…along with urging your family members and friends to vote for Jack Jordan (to ultimately replace Joe Donnelly in the U.S. Congress).

#2 – Please forward this e-mail quickly and broadly to your many e-mail contacts.  (Recipients, please forward to your contacts)

These are very serious times…one man recently told me that he would lose his right to complain if he didn’t vote in the May 4th Primary.   In this Primary, Republicans have a choice between 2 distinctly different candidates to replace Joe Donnelly.  Jackie Walorski has the typical politician’s resume and she would be “more of the same” in Congress.  Or me, Jack Jordan, who has a real life resume.  I have been blessed to have significant experiences in business, leadership, missions, healthcare, education and international opportunities.   With strong voter turn-out, we will win this race!

As you know, we won’t attack our opponent with half-truths or personal attacks…but we aren’t afraid to get the facts out.   Facts which are very important and help underscore the difference between a citizen candidate and a politician.  Following is information from a “Facts” commercial we launched on TV.  You will notice they are 100% accurately sourced.  (A link to access the commercial is at the end of this e-mail)

Citizen Candidate vs. Politician:

How many lobbyists have given money to each candidate?

Has either candidate ever missed a critical committee vote on time change which would have stopped the bill? (A “politician” avoiding a difficult stance?)

“Daylight-saving time still alive; Walorski’s absence lets bill move to full House.”

Source: South Bend Tribune, May 1, 2005 by Martin DeAgostino

“Fox News bloviator Bill O’Reilly calls it “the no spin zone.”

That’s where he corrects the selective memory of public figures whose commitment to the truth seems, shall we say, less than total.

Here then, are some “no-spin” correctives generated by the 2005 Indiana General Assembly…..”

“Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Lakeville, announcing that “I voted ‘no’ every single time that (daylight-saving  time) has been brought up.”

No-spin correction: It’s not always how you vote, but when, and Walorski skipped a committee meeting and vote where she had a unique opportunity to bury the bill.

She cited a competing committee schedule, but the Tribune attended both meetings and there was plenty of time between them.”

Walorski Reaches ‘Contender’ Status with NRCC’s Young Guns Program

(Washington DC) – Today, the National Republican Congressional Committee announced that 2nd District Congressional Candidate Jackie Walorski had reached ‘Contender’ status as part of the Young Guns recruitment program. The program was founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI). Young Guns is a member-driven organization that has become an official NRCC program dedicated to electing open-seat and challenger candidates nationwide.

“Jackie has already proven that she will be a formidable candidate by meeting the Young Guns program’s rigorous goals and is well on her way to building a winning campaign that will put this seat in the Republican column,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX).

“Jackie is part of a strong and growing pool of candidates who are frustrated with the Democrat majority’s big-government ways and aren’t willing to stand by any longer,” said Sessions. “Her campaign has put Congressional Democrats on notice that Americans are ready to turn the page on the failed experiment known as the Obama-Pelosi agenda.”

While already achieving certain benchmarks to place them on the road to victory, ‘Contender’ candidates now face a new set of rigorous benchmarks that will continue to help them build competitive, effective and winning campaigns.

Jack jordan campaign update – april 20, 2010

Jack Jordan

Campaigning for the opportunity to represent you as your 2nd District U.S. Congressman is an absolute privilege. One thing they didn’t warn me about was how humbling it is to have so many people sacrifice so much of their time and energy to help out.  You have busy lives with so many job, family, and other obligations yet, your willingness to take time out of your busy schedules to help out – I just can’t thank you enough.   Thank you.

The great news is that our research now tells us that all the hard work is paying off.  We have turned this into a competitive race!   More and more people are agreeing that “Enough is Enough!” with politicians and politics as usual.   An increasing number of voters are excited about truly shaking things up in Washington D.C. by replacing Joe Donnelly with someone who is not a politician but has significant real world experience.   If we finish strong, we can absolutely win this race!

With 2 weeks left, we especially need your help in one specific area:  The distribution of yard signs on higher traffic roads around the district.   As many of you know, we have had significant production issues with our yard signs, but it looks like we will have enough for the final surge.   We have the Bremen town area covered and we now need your help in getting signs put up in higher traffic areas around the district.  Contact Sheila if this is something you can help out with over the next 2 weeks.  (info@jackjordanforcongress.com or 1-877-212-2501)

Walorski statement on president’s executive order

Just a quick note. I am having to be selective of what I post from the Walorski campaign, as most of what I receive is scheduling info, or  some other BS that I don’t care about. I still haven’t seen any real stance on issues.

Walorski Statement on President’s Executive Order

“The executive order signed this afternoon isn’t worth the paper that it is written on. President Obama has been called one of the most pro-abortion Presidents in the history of our country and it is an absolute fallacy for Democrats like Joe Donnelly to tell taxpayers that federal dollars are not or will not be going to fund abortions. That is why pro-life groups like the Susan B. Anthony List, the National Right to Life, and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops have all criticized this superficial action.”

“Until Planned Parenthood is defunded, federal dollars are being used every day to provide abortions and despite all the rhetoric this executive order does nothing to change that.”
