Independence Hall Tea Party PAC Plugs Anna Little For U.S. Senate

In an email to “Members and Friends,” Don Adams, President of the Independence Hall Tea Party PAC, declared that the PAC’s favorite candidate to challenge U.S. Senator Robert Menendez is Anna Little:

Independence Hall Tea Party PAC             


 July 25, 2011



Dear Members and Friends,


Not surprisingly, all five of the region’s Democrat US Senators voted against the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act this past Friday.


The real surprise is that we let them get away with it.  Three of the five are up for

re-election in 2012–Bob Casey (D-PA), Tom Carper (D-DE), and Bob Menendez (D-NJ). 


In New Jersey, several strong candidates have been mentioned as possible opponents to the tax loving, spendaholic Bob Menendez.


Our favorite is Anna Little.  As a PAC endorsed candidate, Anna won an upset primary victory in the 2012 New Jersey 6th Congressional District race.  She then narrowly lost the General Election to incumbent Democrat Frank Pallone in a district where Democrats largely outnumber Republicans.


Anna has been planning a rematch against Pallone, but PAC members have been discussing a Draft Anna Little for US Senate campaign.


Anna is an ideal senate candidate.  She is articulate, charismatic, knowledgeable, and conservative.  She has prior elective experience, serving as a Monmouth County Freeholder and Mayor of Highlands, NJ.  She speaks fluent Spanish, and, if elected, would become the state’s first female US Senator.


If you agree with the draft Anna Little campaign, you’ll have an opportunity to tell Anna, yourself, at a luncheon withGrover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform.


Lunch with Grover Norquist

When:  Tuesday, July 26, 12 Noon-2 PM

Where:  Iberia Restaurant, Iberia Peninsular, 63-69 Ferry Street, Newark, NJ 07105
Host:  Anna Little


Also, meet Bruce Gardner and Beverly Elliott of TEA for Education, a national organization.



Costs: You are responsible for your ala carte meal.  Anna Little Campaign  
              Contribution strongly recommended.





On behalf of the PAC Board of Delegates,
Don Adams, President




If you are unable to make lunch in Newark tomorrow, feel free to express your thoughts on the idea of Little running for U.S. Senate next year here in the comments.  I’m sure the word will get back to her.

Personally, I think Little should hold out for the Vice Presidential nomination.  If elected, she would be the first female Vice President of the United States that speaks fluent Spanish, was a Monmouth County Freeholder, Mayor of Highlands, and who lost to Frank Pallone.

    Trying not to laugh but she raise $0.00 last quarter from what I can tell.

  2. Francis Marion said at 7:15 pm on July 25th, 2011:

    What a joke.

    The Independence Hall Tea Party? As in Pennsylvania?

    What a joke.

  3. Proud Republican said at 7:20 pm on July 25th, 2011:

    Yeah, then she could sell out to the unions at the national level. She can invite her two Democrat pals from the Highlands to her victory party.

  4. disillusioned said at 7:38 pm on July 25th, 2011:

    Someone should tell them to investigate how she sabotaged her last campaign. Might make them think different. Sorry, she talks a great game but can’t deliver.

  5. CommonSense said at 10:37 pm on July 25th, 2011:

    Seriously? I just literally laughed out loud. Anna Little can’t even be elected Mayor of Highlands anymore, yet alone Congresswoman, yet alone Senator! Its reasons like this that the Tea Party is loosing credibility.

  6. Bob English said at 10:47 pm on July 25th, 2011:

    Narrowly lost to Pallone??? LOL Last time I looked a 10 point margin was called a landside.

    “Any Democratic member of Congress who walks away with a 10-percent margin of victory this year (November 2010), I think you can refute any assertion that the tea party has really held sway in (that) district,” said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University.

    Having lunch with Norquist is reason enough not to support her.

  7. Wayne Pomanowski said at 6:49 am on July 26th, 2011:

    Art,while Anna bashing has become fashionable we in politics should all remember in this business we are all “bittersweet”.None of we participants are perfect in what we do and how we do it.We should all remember when Anna could have run for Freeholder as a democrat and probably won,when chose to stay an R.I certainly have ticked off more than my share of Mayors,Freeholders, County Chairmen,Senators and Municipal Chairmen.
    The real question here is what will our district look like after the new districts are crafted,and who the players will be.The 6th could easily be absorbed by and expansion of Ocean, Middlesex and Mercer Counties.See you at the Clam fest!!

  8. ArtGallagher said at 7:06 am on July 26th, 2011:

    Welcome back Wayne,

    I hope that post gets you out of the doghouse, if that is what you want.

  9. VPJerseyShore said at 10:41 am on July 26th, 2011:

    What is all this vitriol directed at Ms. Little? Please tell me they are radical leftist in disguise and not true God fearing Americans. Because if mainstream Americans are bashing Ms. Little we have become short sighted, narrow minded masochistic morons.
    Need proof? Provide the name of someone you think would do better.

  10. ArtGallagher said at 10:51 am on July 26th, 2011:

    Diane Gooch

    Why not President? Why stop at Senator?

    But honestly, why are we fighting each other?

    Let’s remember Ronald Reagan’s 13th commandment – “Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican”.

    Let’s fight the real enemy – the quasi-socialists hell bent on destroying this country’s capitalist economy to install their version of a socialist utopia.

    Obama’s economy sux.

  13. CutMeABreak said at 1:42 pm on July 26th, 2011:

    The Gallagher Anna Little stalking continues!!!! What the hell is Gallagher’s problem? At least Anna Little has been elected to public office. A feat Mr. Gallagher has yet to accomplish. I guess those that can’t do bloviate endlessly.

    Nobody is in the Republican “doghouse” more than Gallagher. Actually more like the Republican Outhouse!!!

  14. Charles M said at 3:47 pm on July 26th, 2011:

    Pallone normally wins by +30% but in 2010 he only won by 10%

  15. Bob Englsh said at 5:05 pm on July 26th, 2011:

    +10% in a big Republican year was actually a very good win by Pallone. In 2012, unless NJ somehow becomes competitive on the Presidential level, I don’t think that Little or anyone else woud have a shot at beating Pallone.

    If O’Bama wins the state again in a landside, it would be pretty far-fetched to think that Pallone woud not win again also.

  16. Mary Grace Fan said at 6:30 pm on July 26th, 2011:

    Art, Mary Pat Angelini? Really?

    Art, the woman is the village idiot. Angelini sponsored legislation that would have allowed the government to ” survey” our school children. Angelini wanted our kids asked all sorts of personal and inappropriate questions. Angelini then backed away (flip-flopped) from this position only after it was exposed what sort of liberal she is.

    Angelini Withdrawing As Sponsor of A3242

    Angelini is the same idiot that opposed New Jersey’s strict medical marijuana law because she thinks the law will increase teen drug usage and/or will “legally allow high school seniors to walk around carrying 240 joints.”

    What Was Mary Pat Angelini Smoking?

  17. Freespeaker1976 said at 8:56 pm on July 26th, 2011:

    No help coming from me for Anna. She’s done. Full of promises, no follow through & I positively despise that.

  18. disillusioned said at 8:54 am on July 27th, 2011:

    Wayne and other supporters before you support Anna for office again talk to the people in her inner circle who worked on her campaign. Her ideology is great but you need more then that to win.

  19. Proud Republican said at 9:48 am on July 27th, 2011:

    Right disillusioned – Anna’s bizarre behavior and kooky antics are a turn-off to voters. Everytime she would start singing at one of her rallies I would cringe, not because her voice was bad, which it wasn’t, but because I want a serious candidate who can get elected and fight for conservative principles, not Celene Dion in four languages. Her ideology is great – when she sticks to it. She has shown that she is willing to throw it away if she thinks it will benefit her, like the cave to the unions and her Democrat council members. Anna has always had a reputation for being flighty, unpredictable and self-centered. This last campaign did nothing to dispel that.

  20. Don Adams said at 1:32 am on August 5th, 2011:

    First of all, for those of you who are sooo smart to point out that Independence Hall is located in PA, I’d like to remind you that the building stands on federal property and is a national symbol.

    The Independence Hall Tea Party is a regional organization encompassing the Delaware Valley media market.

    That media market consists of counties in three states–DE, NJ, and PA.

    Our members are from the tri-state region.

    Half of our board is from New Jersey.

    Next, whoever compiled the list of candidates who would be better suited to run for US Senate than Anna Little must be joking or smoking.

    The first name on your list, Diane Gooch, is a fine person (as are most of the others),
    but poor Diane couldn’t even beat Anna Little in the 6th Congressional District primary, despite outspending her by about 20-1.

    Most of the other candidates you mentioned
    would not be able to garner the kind of grassroots statewide support that Anna Little could. She has a natural base of support from conservative Republicans and
    Tea Partiers.

    Also, many (not all) of the names appearing on the list do not have Anna Little’s professional/educational qualifications.

    Interesting that you left out another prominent conservative: State Senator
    Michael Doherty.

    You managed, though, to mention every
    moderate Republican in the state.

    Of course, Anna Little is the PAC’s favorite for a whole host of additional reasons and here they are:

    Anna Little is articulate, charismatic, knowledgeable, personable, thoughtful,
    tenacious, sensible, talented and an excellent debater.

    Anna Little may or may not run for the US Senate, but she equipped herself extremely well in her first run for Congress.

    Getting 45% of the vote against Frank Pallone was a major accomplishment in a district in which Republicans are grossly outnumbered.

    I think the reason Monmouth Musings published the Independence Hall Tea Party PAC Newsletter is because we struck a nerve.

    We certainly appreciate the additional publicity.

    Anna Little, herself, has made no mention of a bid for the US Senate.

    We’re just throwing it out there–and look at the response we’ve gotten.

    Sometimes, a reaction to an idea speaks volumes.
