The speeches by Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio emphasized how old and out of date the status quo Democrats really are. Below is a perfect example.
Referred to this woman:
Now my dear Kirsten, you may be a Dem and on the other side of the fence, but I am a mother first. So I am advising when you are in DC to NEVER be alone in a room with Señor Reid. And when NOT in DC, to keep at least 2 states between you. I’m not talking about the little states like Rhode Island or Delaware, I’m talking about the BIG states, like Colorado and Nevada.
Now that we’ve had a good laugh, on to the crux of the article.
Last month Pilgrim did an excellent exposé called “eye candy” for the men: young conservative women running for office.
But all is fair in love and war. And politics as well.
So with Pilgrim’s assistance, below are some of the male U.S. Senate and U.S. House GOP nominees who are 42 years old or younger, and Real Clear Politics has these seats as in play or safe GOP. But I think first we need to start with numero uno:
Rep. Paul Ryan, Candidate for Vice President, 42
For the ladies who would like to see him shirtless, you can view the photo here. This was a pic of him 6 years ago, so one can just imagine what he looks like now…
California House (CD-9) Republican candidate Ricky Gill, 25
Ricky is a small business owner who has played an integral role in his family’s small business for years. From his early involvement with the agricultural side of his family business to his later role in ownership and management of a diverse enterprise that employs 60 people in the San Joaquin Valley, Ricky understands that small business is the engine of economic growth and job creation in this country. Ricky’s business experience in the local agriculture industry and in beverage exports uniquely positions him to represent the 9th District on matters of trade and regulatory policy.
Illinois House (CD-12) Republican candidate Jason Plummer, 30
Businessman and community leader Jason Plummer, the 2010 Republican nominee for Illinois Lieutenant Governor, resides in O’Fallon, Illinois. He serves as Vice President of Corporate Development at R.P. Lumber Company, a family-owned and operated business. Jason also works in related personal and family businesses, focusing on property development and real estate management and services. Jason is proud of the fact that R.P. Lumber and related businesses are involved in creating and maintaining more than 1,000 quality jobs throughout Illinois and surrounding states.
California House (CD-16) Republican candidate Brian Whelan, 28
Brian is running against incumbent Democrat Jim Costa, and part of this district includes farmers hurting for water because of delta smelt.
Bad water policy that refuses to balance human suffering against environmental concerns is hurting us. It’s time we carry the message of common sense solutions to Washington: improved water storage, infrastructure and conveyance equals jobs.
Iowa House (CD-1) Republican candidate Ben Lange, 33
Ben is running for Congress to “Restore the Generational Compact.” For centuries, each generation of Americans has sought to create the conditions for the next generation to live better than the last. But the current generation of politicians has led us to become the most indebted country in the history of the world and have put future generations at risk of total financial collapse.
Oklahoma House (CD-2) Republican candidate Markwayne Mullin, 34
We must return to a more limited government that focuses on basics. We are taxed enough. Cutting spending, not raising taxes, is the answer to paying down debt. The 2nd Amendment is crucial to ensuring our freedom. Excessive government regulations, like those promulgated by the EPA, harm job growth. We must restrain an out-of-control bureaucracy. Life — from the moment of conception to natural death — is sacred. I am a 100 percent pro-life conservative.
Ohio Senate Republican candidate Josh Mandel, 35
As Treasurer of Ohio, Josh has earned the highest possible rating from Standard & Poor’s for the $4 billion government investment fund he manages, and the highest possible rating from Fitch for the state’s short-term General Obligation bonds. Applying the principles of fiscal conservatism and common sense decision-making, his liquidity portfolio is up $2.3 billion from the day he took office, and he has navigated the European sovereign debt crisis with a yield on behalf of the taxpayers. These accomplishments came in the wake of the United States credit rating being downgraded for the first time in American history, and at least 14 government funds throughout the country being downgraded.
Arkansas House (CD-4) Republican candidate Tom Cotton, 35
A sixth-generation Arkansan, Tom Cotton was born and raised in Dardanelle on his family’s cattle farm. Tom graduated from Dardanelle High School and went on to graduate with honors from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. After completing law school, Tom clerked for the U.S. Court of Appeals and then entered private practice, where he concentrated in labor, employment, and constitutional law in cases at all levels of state and federal court.
California House (CD-21) Republican candidate David Valadao, 35
Having to live and operate a business while suffering the consequences of rules and regulations imposed by out of touch bureaucrats in Washington and Sacramento is one of the reasons David decided to run for the newly drawn 21st Congressional seat. David’s leadership experience also led him to realize that he can make more of a difference for his family and the families of all in the District by working to craft solutions instead of sitting on the sidelines complaining. Join with us in this journey.
Oklahoma House (CD-1) Republican candidate Jim Bridenstine, 37
Lieutenant Commander Jim Bridenstine is a veteran combat pilot who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He currently flies counter-narcotics missions around the world with the Navy Reserve. As the former Executive Director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, Jim Bridenstine launched Tulsa’s effort to acquire a retired Space Shuttle and created many exciting aviation events. He has a triple major from Rice University, an MBA from Cornell University, the discipline of a combat pilot, the courage of a war veteran, and the willingness to stand-up to the Washington elite.
Kentucky House (CD-6) Republican candidate Andy Barr, 39
I support a future that is more in keeping with our founding principles—a future built upon limited government, individual freedom, fiscal responsibility, traditional American values and a strong national defense. I believe we must be vigilant and proactive in the war on terror and do all that we can in defense of our freedom. I believe in cutting government spending, balancing the federal budget and reducing the national debt. I believe in growing the economy and creating jobs by cutting taxes, living within our means and getting the government out of the way. I believe that economic activity should be organized through private enterprise operating in a free market. And I believe that the primary function of government should be the preservation of liberty.
Iowa House (CD-2) Republican candidate John Archer, 40
Our nation seems to be in decline. Much of this has been caused by a Liberal Left attempt to “control” our economy for the entrenchment of their power base. The current administration seems eager to push as many citizens as possible into some form of dependency on government. They could then control enough votes to succeed in their goal of long-term social engineering.
This attempt has created far more debt than our nation can afford. It has built a bureaucracy so large that little of our tax payments can find a way to the people who really need help. Their assumption seems to be that they can run our lives better than we can. But, the on-going stories about intelligence leaks, secret service parties, GSA spending, and other misdeeds tell another story. It tells us they cannot run their own lives – much less ours.
It is for this reason that I am running for a seat in The US Congress.
North Carolina House (CD-7) Republican candidate David Rouzer, 40
I am convinced that as a society we need to return to the moral and spiritual principles that enabled our Founders to have such courage, and we need to return to a much more limited government that rewards hard work and ingenuity and focuses on those areas where it is uniquely suited.
New York House (CD-21) Republican candidate Matt Doheny, 41
People continue to worry about our country’s lack of forward progress. We need good paying jobs. But President Obama and his allies continue to stifle growth by pushing an agenda that leads to higher taxes and bigger deficits. That just creates more burdens for both average Americans and for our future generations.
North Carolina House (CD-8) Republican candidate Richard Hudson, 41
Richard knows the importance of getting this economy growing and creating jobs. He is committed to conservative, pro-business principles that will help create jobs: cutting taxes, reducing excessive regulations and fully funding worker retraining programs at our community colleges. As our Congressman, Richard will roll up his sleeves, work hard and remain focused on his goal of every worker having an opportunity at a good job.
Kentucky House (CD-4) Republican candidate Thomas Massie, 41
America’s sluggish economy and persistently high unemployment are due to our government’s massive debt, over regulation of our businesses, and a tax system that punishes achievement. I am opposed to bailouts, corporate subsidies, undeclared wars, and so called stimulus spending — on economic, moral, and constitutional grounds.
California House (CD-26) Republican candidate Tony Strickland, 42
As Senator, Tony’s top priority has been to restore California’s struggling economy and to reform state government. Tony’s fight to transition California’s economy to a renewable, more energy efficient economy, to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and improve our environment put Republicans on notice that he was willing think outside the box. His efforts to cap state spending, reform our unsustainable pension system, and seek regulatory reforms to put people back to work make him a frequent target of the Democrats and their allies.
New York House (CD-1) Republican candidate Randy Altschuler, 42
Social Security and Medicare are critical social safety nets that must be preserved and protected for future generations of senior citizens. To do that, we must have the political courage to reform both programs and make them solvent and sustainable.
Texas Senate Republican candidate Ted Cruz, 42
We all know the story of how Ted Cruz “cruised” over David Dewhurst in the Texas primary. We need true Conservatives in the U.S. Senate and Ted needs our support. Below is a few words from him:
The election of a president as radical as Barack Obama resoundingly demonstrated the depressing scarcity of principled conservative leaders who can communicate common-sense ideas in a way that resonates with the American people. We need to rediscover the leadership embodied by President Reagan, and the values that have kept our nation strong, including faith, family, limited government, individual responsibility, and expanding opportunity for every American. We need a new generation of leaders committed to making a difference, not simply staying in office. We need to inspire young people and old people and all people that America has always been and must continue to be a ‘shining city on a hill,’ a land of hope and opportunity built upon rule of law.
Good luck to all these fine young Conservative men.
