Does Sheets Byrd count?.

You might want to let Vicky Hartzler have another shot; you misspelled her name and when I looked for her last Sunday her name wasn't on the list.

Good info on Vicky on Facebook: www.facebook.com/vickyhartzler

Hi RK:
I sent Marco Rubio in again with my comments to you yesterday, but it probably got overlooked with all the other "controversy" going on.
I got some feedback on my post because I made an error stating Lollar was running against Wargotz (totally my mistake and corrected today). But the person also thinks Wargotz is not a birther and said his remarks were taken out of context.
I'll be posting the new poll sometime tomorrow.
Hope Marco makes the poll again this week.
Thanks for all your hard work.

I'm refraining from joining TBF right now because it involves donating to candidates embroiled in heated primary contests in distant states, which I have honestly spent little time researching.

Nevertheless, this is a great cause and I have and am continuing to donate more during this election cycle than I ever have.

What I've decided to do is to chose my own candidate from this great list in doing my own personal TBF. This week my $10 went to Sharron Angle.

R-g: Thanks. Should be up tomorrow at noon, local time.

pine: Sorry, no posthumous winners

always: Thanks

LhC: Thank you! And thanks for your nomination.

TCL: Added!

nacilbupera: I understand. We have to be very careful about contested primaries. One of the things that appeals to me about the TBF concept is that no one is asked to contribute to or promote any candidate that they don't know or don't like. Sharon Angle has been renominated, so your local favorite might be this week's winner.

Collins Bailey was the 2008 GOP candidate in MD-05 who lost to Steny Hoyer by a rather large margin. Lollar, who's also renominated, is the better candidate in that district, in my opinion.

Murphy's a GOP candidate for Governor in MD, and I think the only non-Congressional candidate on the list. Not that it's a bad thing to include him, just a different candidate.

One of the reasons to send $$ to RickBarber...

Hi RK:
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me your nice comment. I'm leaving the same response here to make sure you see it. Looking forward to tomorrows new poll:

Your sentiments are mine, exactly. You've done a great job and are to be commended for taking time away from your regular blog to help give conservative candidates some exposure and a little financial help with their campaigns (and doing it in a competitive way with the poll makes it fun). Education is important when making decisions on who to vote for and TBF is a perfect vehicle for people to get the information needed to make informed decisions.
I'm happy and proud to be involved with TBF.

MN: Thanks for your input. We do occcasionally include candidates for Gov. Susanna Martinez, for example.

Z: Rick Barber is great. When he gets to Congress, he's going to make the liberals go mad.

Here's another reason to support RB:

It's a long video, but it's great.

TCL: Thanks for the continued support. There was a lot of behind-the-scenes nastiness last week, but we're not going to let TBF get bogged down by all that.

I want to do what I can to help every candidate who has the courage to promote conservative principles in the interest of making this a better country.

We'll keep working toward that goal.

I nominate Anna Little for, I guess, next week's poll.
