Powerline’s John Hinderaker endorsed Pete Hegseth for US Senate.
Most of all, though, I urge you to go here, learn more about Pete, and donate to his campaign. He is by far the strongest candidate to take on Amy Klobuchar, and the only one with any real chance of success. Our state convention is later this month, and the Ron Paul forces have made a strong bid to stack the convention with delegates. They have their candidate for the Senate nomination. But Pete is the solid, consistent conservative in the race. He subscribes to the Reaganite three-legged stool, with conservative principles on the economy, foreign policy and the social issues.
Beyond that, Pete has a national profile and, with his youth and charisma, will bring some excitement to the Senate race. Taking on the Democratic Party machine in Minnesota isn’t easy, but Pete has the potential to attract the resources that will be necessary to inform voters about Klobuchar’s liberal voting record. (The newspapers and television stations, needless to say, have no interest in doing that.) As a member of Minnesota’s donor community, I can say with confidence that the other candidates in the race will have trouble attracting local, let alone national, resources. In a year like 2012, which should be a good one for the GOP, the last thing we should do is let a Senate seat go by default.
