Ten Buck Friday Poll - New Slate of Candidates

The new Ten Buck Friday (TBF) poll is up. At this minute, Renee Ellmers, a newly-endorsed Mama Grizzlie by Sarah Palin, is in the lead. Ellmers is running against Bad-Tempered Bob Etheridge - the North Carolinian District 2 Democrat who was more than a tad annoyed when two college students wanted an interview. He roughed one up a bit, but only because the student was too polite to level his elder to the sidewalk. You can see that video below.

We have a great slate of candidates. You can find information on each candidate below, courtesy of RightKlik.

If donating to a candidate outside of your state seems ridiculous, consider this: "politics" are no longer local. Every Democrat vote across the country affects you in Des Moines, your sister in Dallas or my family in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

We must fund these constitutional conservatives. Most of them are not well-known. Most are running against very established Democrats. These candidates are rising from obscurity to help us take back the House and the Senate. We must be involved in their fundraising.

Every $10 donation counts toward victory. Please make a donation, no matter how small. Join us in a weekly donation by giving up your Starbucks and putting that money toward the election of a conservative candidate. Participating Ten Buck Friday bloggers thank you in advance for your donations. A new winner is announced each Friday.

You can vote on any poll on on any participating blog. All votes are cumulative.
