TheBlaze Radio’s Doc Thompson breaks down some national races that really matter

Glenn is not the only member of TheBlaze team who is looking to highlight up-and-coming talent in the conservative movement. Doc Thompson, host of The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson on TheBlaze Radio Network, and his producer Skip LaCombe have been scouring the country looking for key races that could really have an impact this November. Doc and Skip introduced Glenn to strong candidates like Matt Bevin in Kentucky and Greg Bannon in North Carolina, and Doc joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss the importance of the 2014 midterms.

“Doc is one of my favorite employees along with Skip because these guys don’t just sit around and wait for us to say, ‘Hey, here’s what we’re gonna do.’ They just take it on,” Glenn said. “One day, I find out that these guys have taken their own car and their own money and everything else, and they are like, We’re going to go across the country. We’re going to meet all these candidates.’ And they did.”

Last year, Doc and Skip traveled to a total of 20 states and met countless people along the way. What is so exciting about this election cycle is that we don’t need to win every race in order to make an impact. Sending just a couple key reinforcements will greatly bolster the work of Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rand Paul (R-KY).

“I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Greg Brannon is one of the ones I said stands out. Let’s get him some attention. He’s definitely one. Matt Bevin… tremendous,” Doc said. “We don’t need to put 400 people in there. We need a couple of reinforcements to people like Cruz and Lee, and you’re there.”

“Those are the two really that we found to be just incredible candidates,” Pat agreed. “I mean, what an amazing thing it would be to add Greg Brannon and Matt Bevin to Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. You’re onto something there.:

Other notable candidates Doc has discovered in the last dew months is Sam Clovis, who is running for Senate in Iowa, and David Brat, who is challenging House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.

“He’s an economist at Randolph-Macon College. He has laid out an entire argument of how amnesty actually hurts other countries as well… He’s brilliant,” Doc said. “I don’t know if you know this, [but] if John Boehner leaves, Eric Cantor takes over the House. He’s the heir apparent. John Boehner is weak. Eric Cantor is a snake.”

In the lead up to November Doc and Skip have vowed to spend a good deal of their time providing a platform for conservative minded candidates that don’t enjoy the support of the establishment GOP machine.

“Every day we’re spotlighting another state to bring some candidates to your attention,” Doc concluded. “If you like these guys, do your work and vet them some more. And if you like them after that, tell people about them maybe send them a couple dollars… We’ll do the heavy lifting for you. We’ll funnel through it for you.”

You can listen to Doc on The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson weekdays from 6am to 9am ET on TheBlaze Radio Network. Not up that early? You can also listen to the program anytime, anywhere on demand HERE.

    Well lets hope the right ones get in this time so if anything we can stop Progs from killing this country anymore than has been done.

    What about Bryan Smith, who is challenging Rep Mike Simpson in Idaho? Simpson is a RINO . I know Bryan, and he’s a true conservative with the support of Freedom Works and Club for Growth, among other groups. I’d like to see this network learn more about him and support him in this race, which has been called “one of the most important in our nation”.

      Remember a RINO is ten times better than a Liberal Progressive! However the primary works out, vote against the leftists.

      Eric Gurr is challenging John Boehner in the primary election this May.
      Donate and spread the word.

    And don’t forget about the race in NC for NC 2nd District. Boehner’s girl, Renee Ellmers needs to go! Frank Roche is a true conservative who will actually do what he says when he gets to office, unlike the promise one thing do another Ellmers.

    Looking good for Matt Bevin. He only trails Mitch McConnell by 41 points in the polls.

    •!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

      You say that like 41 points is a winnable scenario…

      Bevin needs to get to 5 points or less or he hasn’t a chance in this world.

    Is there a program to teach them how to deal with the press or speeches so they avoid the statements that killed off two last time? Just outright stupidity.

    The key piece of information: The House is a disaster under the leadership of Boehner, Ryan and CANTOR! It is essential that these boobs be retired!

    Although collectivists tend to claim that society has been “designed”, those of the liberty school understand that civilization has resulted from the decisions and actions of innumerable individuals over long periods of time.

    Where’s the outrage at his buddy Ted for calling the president a “subhuman mongrel”?Where’s the Nugent commentary from Beck?

    • The truth about spammers

      Ted really knows how to crank you leftists on.

      Where’s the outrage at Obama’s constant lies to the American people. He’s actually in Government and controls peoples lives.

      Teds having fun at your expense.

        No, no. Nuget is having fun at the expense of being an anachronic political commentator, an old fart trapped in pre-civil rights discourses where it’s ok to denigrate people because they are different than ‘normal’ white Christian folk.

        • The truth about spammers

          Obama’s The President and a liar, just like all you leftists. No one care about Ted except you leftists.

            Glen Beck cares enough to be his pal, his special buddy, or have you forgotten? Or do you prefer to ignore it? That’s what happens when you have friends who are convenient to have ONLY sometimes… other people actually remember.

    Glad to hear you met Sam Clovis, we are really excited to have him run in our state.
