The C4GC Voter’s Guide

May 1, 2012

I arrived home one day last week to find a Guilford County Conservative Voter’s Guide attached to our front door. I didn’t pay it much attention at the time. Today, Al Bouldin, the Guilford County GOP Chairman was quoted at the N&R:

It has come to my attention that there are people at early voting locations telling voters that they are handing out “Republican Voter Guides”. The Republican Party does not endorse any candidates in the Primary. We are forbidden from endorsing one Republican candidate over another. These voter guides are simply the opinion of Political Action Committees. They in no way represent the endorsement of the Republican Party. As the Chairman of the Guilford County GOP, I highly recommend that voters do their own homework concerning the candidates and not rely on political action committees for recommendations. If you would like to learn more about Republican candidates running in the Primary, then go to http://www.guilfordcountygop.org and click on the candidates tab to go to the candidate web sites to learn more about their background, beliefs and how they stand on issues that you care about.

Good on Al for making the distinction, but the voter guide I have clearly states on both sides who published it. Now, I don’t know what they’re telling people as they give them out at the polls, as none of them was so unfortunate as to approach me when I voted last week. However, it seems to me that part of your responsibility as a citizen attempting to vote is to be aware of the candidates, their positions and who is endorsing them. If C4GC manages to find some voters too ignorant to realize C4GC is not in fact the GCGOP, then good for them.

Furthermore, should some of the candidates endorsed by C4GC win the primary, I am prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt and support them in the general election. My contention is that while C4GC is a dangerous cabal of ignorant racists, bigots, misogynists and hypocrites, the candidates they endorse are mere victims.

    The thing is that C4gc has already done their homework and found the best candidates. http://www.myc4gc.com has the best most conservative choices…

      At least your detractors are reading you, which is a form of flattery, I suppose. ;)

      I thought that this post was quite fair and balanced, as Faux News would say. LOL.

    I find what C4GC have to say important because whatever they say I do the opposite. I have no clue what the mission of C4GC is about but I think FEC hit the nail on the head with his view of the group.

    Seems Al Bouldin decided this past Saturday to violate the rules. Rule #11 Candidate Support : “We will be making calls on behalf of Mitt Romney to swing voters at the Guilford County Republican Party Headquarters (3950 W. Market St., Greensboro). If you want to make a difference and help defeat Barack Obama, then here is your chance! Join us tomorrow from 10am – 4 pm!” Al Bouldin Right before tomorrows primary Al Bouldin used the Guilford County Republican Party Headquarters to make calls on behalf of Romney.

      Are you sure rules were violated if the calls were on behalf of a national candidate?

    The fact is that a lot of voters don’t vote and others don’t know who is even running and what platfom they are on. I will use the conservative example about not coming out to vote. The white st landfill was the issue of 2011 city elections, many that opposed the opening came out to vote. The conservatives on the council that wanted the landfill open had little support from their conservatives, 3 out of 4 lost and like 11 % voter turnout, 20,000 out of about 184,000. The other issue is not knowing who to vote for, I stood out at early voting for weeks and a lotof people asked me who was in their district running and who I would vote for.
