Brown 15 point swing gives Kuzmanich hope against David Wu

Massachusetts surprise candidate Scott Brown was 13 points behind Coakley in December, and ended up soaring 15 points upwards to win by 52% in less than 30 days. An incredible feat for a liberal state that has only 12% Republicans. It is that type of unpredictable tidal wave that has candidate challengers salivating. The first congressional candidate to blast a press release vowing to surf the national wave is John Kuzmanich who is challenging Oregon Congressman David Wu. See below;

Press release from John Kuzmanich campaign,
Portland, Ore. — John Kuzmanich, Republican candidate for Oregon’s 1st Congressional District, says the results of the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts in which Scott Brown defeated the political establishment candidate Martha Coakley proves that he is the right candidate to unseat David Wu in November. “What happened in Massachusetts yesterday shows that people are fed up with a political class that ignores their wishes,” said Kuzmanich. “Scott Brown was the people’s candidate. He won because voters care far less about party affiliation than they do about having elected officials that listen to them.
“People are frustrated. They see a President and Congress that is increasingly disconnected from the reality they are living every day on Main Street. At a time of record federal deficits and near record job losses, Congress cut backroom deals to flood taxpayer dollars to favored interest groups such as banks, labor unions and insurance companies.”

Like Scott Brown, John Kuzmanich is loosely affiliated with the Tea Party movement, which has attracted millions of Republicans, Independents and Democrats who object to the record deficits and government cronyism that has characterized the government’s response to the nation’s financial crisis.

“The Massachusetts Senate election shows that people are rejecting candidates favored by the party establishment, said Kuzmanich. “Like in Massachusetts, Oregon voters don’t want their candidates chosen by party hacks back east. They are hungry for authentic candidates who live the same reality they live and who listen to and understand their concerns.

“In my race for Congress,” said Kuzmanich, “I am that candidate.”

    He says he has a plan to keep social security and medicare solvent, and balance the budget. I would like to hear it.

    • v gay person

      They include cutting what is paid out, removing illegals from recieving benefits and not allowing the federal government from stealing the surplus.

      • retired UO science prof

        I wouldn’t ordinarily reply to the fake gay v person; your act was stale from the moment you launched it, and it betrays a very unhealthy obsession.

        But is this actually his stated plan for social security/medicare, or your imagination? Is he really advocating payment cuts? If he doesn’t plan to spend the payroll tax surplus (which is going to vanish soon anyway), what is his plan to balance the rest of the federal budget?

    But no RINO’s need apply. Keep it truthful and conservative. Viva Reagan.

  • Brodhead For Congress

    Here is my plan to fix the economy and trim government. Unlike some of the other candidates, I served my country for close to 3 decades. I have seen how we can reduce military spending and redeploy troops and be more efficient without weakening our military. Cutting social security for the soon to be 80 million recipients after they have paid in their entire lives is an insult. Here is part of my platform! I deal in specifics not contentless rhetoric and generalities. Brodhead For Congress has not been actively seeking donations, however by the end of this next week, we will have increased our self financing from $100,000 to $300,00 . Rob Cornilles will probably eclipse that number from individual state donors by 31 January. If John Kuzmanich is the candidate as he suggests, he will be able to match Rob Cornilles or myself “Dollar for Dollar”, if not it is simply Smoke and Mirrors on his part!
