Little Announces For Congress, Claims GOP Support

Anna Little announced her candidacy for Congress from the 6th district this morning in an email blast that also sought petition signatures, campaign volunteers and donations.

Little claimed that support from unnamed “GOP leaders” was instrumental in her decision to abandon her U.S. Senate primary campaign against Joe Kyrillos in favor of a congressional campaign:

During the past week, GOP leaders have offered us their support to run in Congressional District 6. You earned this opportunity by winning the GOP Primary, off the line, in 2010. By offering us their support this year, the GOP is respecting the wishes of grass roots New Jerseyans. This is a tremendous opportunity to continue what you started in 2010.

After many meetings, planning, and discussions with grass roots patriots, we have concluded that continuing what we started in 2010, to defeat Frank Pallone, will best serve the interests of the people of the State of NJ and the grass roots conservative movement statewide.

Little lost the Monmouth County Republican endorsement for congress from the sixth district to political newcomer, Ernesto Cullari on Friday morning.  The Middlesex County GOP convenes on March 24th to award their endorsement.

    It’s time to move on.

    That aside, because of some disturbing events over the past few weeks; those events being caused by establishment Republicans; I am actually considering Mr. Hogan’s course of action and departing from this scene by summer.

    The system is broken, the establishment keeps forcing seriously flawed candidates like Romney upon us and we keep accepting it.

    As well, failed candidates like Anna Little keep thinking there is a unicorn and a chance to win.

    However, if I do depart; I will indeed share a few stories about some of the skeletons in the closet of the Republican Establishment.

    I’m expendable, with nothing to loose. Hence, I have nothing to fear about what I might say.

    Good to see Anna is only one of many drama queens to visit the site…………….
    No one is hanging in suspense to hear your alleged slights……………….

  3. Rullo for Senate said at 11:13 am on March 18th, 2012:

    Rullo rejects the party bosses working as a GOP operative & is a member of Citizens for Freedom who works with the Tea Party.

    Rullo was able to get the signatures without the GOP organization, & stay in the campaign from October 2011. That is impressive.

    Did anyone see Rullo speak at the Tea Party forum in Keyport. He is an articulate and knowledgeable speaker. The guy has been all around the state many times I have heard. Here is the video of the debate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muY5Sd–4ZY&feature=related

    Don’t you worry your pretty little heart. This ain’t drama. This is about the disaster that the NJ State Republican Party has become.

  6. And "Not A Rullobot," said at 4:18 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Who Else Would Be Posting A Video Of Joe Rullo OTHER Than A Rullobot?

  7. Proud Rullo Supporter said at 4:22 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Not a Rullobot. A proud Rullo supporter amonst many others as you will soon see when the signatures are submitted, lol.

  8. Calling it like it was... said at 4:32 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Anna was a plant by Kyrillos, to keep other credible, conservative candidates out of the Senate race, and then she was back doored for Congress. Plain and simple.

  9. Been there & bought the lousy T shirt said at 5:03 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Carrroll, Hart, Cote, Vaccaro, Laffey, Gallagher, Barry, Bellew. They all started out as Anna’s inner circle. Are any of them working for her now?

    What does that tell you?

  10. Rino Country said at 11:02 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Monmouth didn’t pick Anna because the Rino tamer is Kyrillos. Not one conservative in Monmouth I know will vote for him. Actually not one conservative in NJ will vote for him. What is the difference between Kyrillos and Bob Menendez?

  11. No difference said at 11:43 pm on March 18th, 2012:

    Rino Country there isn’t any difference between Kyrillos and Menendez. Did I get the right answer?

  12. Name (required) said at 11:53 am on March 19th, 2012:

    Some postings are just plain ridiculous. The usual Party poopers
