What can I say? Apparently every little bit helps.
Breitbart.com was kind enough to note that RedState had Ted Cruz show up at our 2009 gathering to speak, as well as interview with us after the fact. At the time he was running for Texas Attorney General, of course.
And – normally I’d say ‘not to brag, or anything,’ except that I totally mean to brag: Ted Cruz’s win last night means that we’re poised to have had three future Senators (Cruz, Pat Toomey, and Marco Rubio), one state’s Attorney General (Ken Cucchinelli), and one future Governor (Nikki Haley) speak at our first RedState Gathering. Which is… not very shabby, is it? Mind you, the point here is to provide the attendees with access to the folks who we’d all like to see running the GOP and the conservative movement, not give people like me the opportunity to brag. Bragging rights are merely a fortunate byproduct of being a successful activist site, and thus not a critical part of the exercise at all.
Still. Not too shabby.
