Well, this sure is interesting: The Conservative Majority Project.
The Oregon Republican Party desperately needs new blood and new leadership. The Conservative Majority Project, with your help, will identify and elect this new leadership. ...
The Republican Party desperately needs skilled and courageous people to step into the arena of ideas and challenge both the "Certified Smart People" and the establishment class who are running this state.
It seems that this Conservative Majority Project was launched right around the same time that legislative candidate Matt Wingard's criminal history was revealed in the media. As was noted here on BlueOregon, Wingard's continuing candidacy has unveiled a serious split within the ranks of the Oregon GOP - with "establishment" Republicans wanting him gone, and "conservative" Republicans defending him. (As if there's a difference in the modern Oregon GOP.)
One of the CMP's board members is Rob Kremer (a one-time candidate for Supt. of Public Instruction) -- who posted a vigorous defense of Wingard on his blog. It's no surprise, then, that one of the three candidates featured by the CMP is Matt Wingard himself.
Of course, the CMP isn't off to a very auspicious start. They've only raised $5100 - almost all of it from Paul Farago, a right-wing activist and donor.
You know the the right-wing in Oregon is down and out when they start tearing into each other and fighting over meaningless scraps of carrion.
