Charlotte Bergmann: Only Candidate that Can Bring Reconciliation to Memphis

My friend and Congressional Candidate, Charlotte Bergmann, has been talking to voters during Early Voting in the Primary in Memphis.  Her message of bringing Liberty, Prosperity and Reconciliation to Memphis is resonating with voters.  She was confronted by an angry voter who was spewing anger at "the man" and told her, "You ought to be ashamed of yourself running as a Republican."  She called out to him as he was walking away "How can you blame a Republican for this mess when most people in Memphis have voted for Democratic policies?" He made it a point to let her know when he returned that he, "Voted Republican".  Probably for the first time in his life! 

Charlotte Bergmann states that  "IT HAS GOT TO STOP: I'm running for office because I meet people voting for their lives! People who are living with our economic realities and those realities are painful. The incumbent's plans have NOT 'worked'"  

"REALITY: Forty-one straight months of unemployment above 8 percent, 8.2 million people working part-time who want full-time work, a record 88 million Americans not in the labor force, 1.9 percent GDP growth in the past quarter, more bad GDP numbers expected tomorrow, a stagnant housing market, $5 trillion in new debt, the downgrading of the U.S. credit rating, 38 percent of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, 45 million Americans on food stamps, food prices continuing to increase dramatically, the poverty level likely to rise to the highest level in nearly fifty years…"

Ms. Bergmann is serious about her goal of bringing Reconciliation not only to Memphis, but also to the rest of the nation.  She was invited to ~and spoke at~ the local NAACP.  She was viciously attacked by radio host Thaddeus Matthews in January.  She has received the thanks of many in the community for getting him off the airwaves because of that interview.  She is also working with friends of Johnnie Williams, a local business owner, who has been jailed  and fined for EPA "violations".  She has a part in the movie Runaway Slave

Charlotte Bergmann needs our help.  She is the only candidate in the Republican Primary that can Repeal and Replace CongressCritter Cohen.  The facts are that the only way to beat Cohen is with outreach to the majority minority community.  We know it can be done.  Shelby County mayor Mark Luttrell was elected in 2010 as a Republican.  He is one of several Republicans who won in 2010.  Charlotte Bergmann can win in November, but only if she gets the Republican nomination.  She needs our help to get her to November.  Will you help by voting for her, telling your friends about her, volunteering for her, or donating to her campaign.  If you are in a "safe" Republican district, you can help by donating and telling your friends about her.  Her vote in Congress will affect all Americans.

  1. Thank you for your post. Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell won his election because he spent years building trust and relationships in the Memphis community before he won their trust.
