Tea Party activist Niger Innis considering congressional run
« on: November 08, 2013, 04:24:19 AM »

You know the media will heap abuse on him, not because he's a member of the Tea Party (though that is the excuse they will use) but because he's a black conservative.  Just remember what they did to Condi Rice and Colin Powell (while he worked for Bush) and Clarence Thomas just to name a few of the racist targets of the media. :pondering:


Tea Party activist Niger Innis considering congressional run

Posted By Alex Pappas On 8:51 PM 11/07/2013 In | No Comments


Niger Innis, a well-known black tea party activist, is seriously contemplating a Republican run for a U.S. House seat in Nevada in 2014.

Reached by The Daily Caller on Thursday, Innis confirmed his interest in running for Nevada’s 4th congressional district seat currently held by freshman Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford.

The 45-year-old conservative activist and Nevada resident is the chief strategist for TheTeaParty.net and national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the organization led by his father Roy Innis. He’s also appeared frequently as a talking head on cable TV.

Innis, who played a role on former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s campaign in 2012, told TheDC that he’s set up an exploratory committee, has been speaking with campaign consultants and is raising money.

“It is time to make Congress functional and effective again,” his exploratory website states. “If Niger ran for Congress, he’ll work to make that happen with a common sense, conservative approach to doing what is best for you, your family and our country.”

If all goes well in raising money and organizing both local and national support, Innis will pull a trigger on a run, he said.

According to an invitation obtained by TheDC, Cain, billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, Jeb Bush, Jr., and Nevada state GOP activist Amy Tarkanian were among those who attended a fundraiser for the Innis exploratory committee on Tuesday night.

The district covers a large geographic across Nevada, including both Las Vegas and  a number of rural counties.

I have always respected and liked Niger Innis.

I hope he does run, but if he does, we need to cover him in prayer.  The left will try to destroy him with their racist attacks and hatred.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

That aspect worries me. Cities do tend to be pretty solidly democrat and have a disproportionate effect on vote counts. Anyone know Vegas' record off hand?

Let them try, My lady. Show their true colors yet again. They do it often enough, even the dullest knife in the voting drawer is going to see a pattern.

If he does run, the media will make many "nuances" about his first name just like they did when the word niggardly was used several years ago. :pondering:

Good to see somebody talking here, about unseating a sitting democrat, instead of about replacing a sitting Republicans.
