Tea Party Insurrection in New York – Victory!
The first major clash of the Tea Party movement in New York in the insurrection to overthrow Democrat control of our federal representation is on!
Gary Berntsen, American Hero and Tea Party candidate, is pushing the Republican party to nominate him to run against the incumbent statist Charles Schumer.
Gary, who had previously been endorsed by Tea Party groups on Long Island to run against congressman Tim Bishop, decided to take on the bigger challenge when it became apparent that the Republican party had no candidate with the visibility, credentials and popular support to take on the Schumer machine.
Tea Party groups from across New York State are joining to demonstrate their support outside the convention at the Sheraton Hotel in New York City today. We will have more information as it becomes available.
Here is an interview Gary did on Hardball where he describes the final acts of the war in Afghanistan when they tried to get Osama Bin Laden:
Another interview on the subject of the CIA case officers killed in the suicide bombing in Afghanistan:
Gary wrote the book Jawbreaker about the hunt for Bin Laden.
Over 100 Tea Party Patriots have entered the convention while a crowd of more than 200 are outside. Not bad for a workday!
Update 2:30 pm
Nominations are about to be read. Lots of chants on the outside!
The Daily News has a report and video:
They also have a video interview with Carl Paladino at the convention:
Gary got 63% of the vote!
He IS our candidate!
There will still be a primary, but the outcome of that is certain.
Schumer is going down!!
Excellent Gary quote:
“No one is invincible, every contest is determined by the two combatants. He’s not going to like running against me.”
