Help Chuck DeVore
In just weeks your Senators will vote on a massive energy tax AKA Cap & Trade. Your actions against this terrible bill have made it clear to lawmakers that you reject this taxing scheme.
The faxes were sent into EVERY Senator’s office, no doubt raising the eyebrows of staffers and calling attention to the newfound energy that concerned Americans are generating all over the country.
Every fax cost our campaign 10 cents but we believe it was worth it to send a message to your Senators in Washington.

For every person who engaged in this effort we sent an extra fax into Barbara Boxer’s office. Why? Senator Boxer is the chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee which oversees the Cap & Trade scheme which will come for a vote in September.
I’m also running hard to retire Barbara Boxer in 2010.
Who am I? I’m a commonsense conservative California State Assemblyman first elected in 2004.
I want to roll back the crushing tax and regulatory burden that discourages American manufacturing and entrepreneurs alike. I want more American oil and gas production and modern nuclear power to reduce our reliance on foreign fossil fuels and improve the environment. I believe we need to apply commonsense reforms to arcane environmental rules that have cut off vital water supplies, putting smelt above people, while devastating the most productive farmland in America in California’s Central Valley. Lastly, I believe that we must get serious about national security and complete the fence along our southern border.
My wife, Diane, and I have been married 21 years and have two wonderful daughters, ages 17 and 12. Before being elected, I worked in the aerospace industry for 13 years where I was the vice president of research for my company.
I served in uniform for over 24 years and am now a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army retired Reserve.
The Reagan White House appointed me a special assistant for foreign affairs in the Pentagon where I worked for Caspar Weinberger.
Today, I am working tirelessly and creatively to end Boxer’s three decade long career in Washington.
- I’ve driven 17,000 miles on California’s freeways and byways to make 112 campaign appearances to more than 20,500 people
- Our combination of serious policy discussion and humor, innovatively delivered, has resulted in 275,000 views of our YouTube videos, including four that have ranked in the top 10 of the News & Politics category on YouTube
- We placed 8 million Internet banner ads on sites such as the Drudge Report and the Washington Times linking to a special website we created, taxfax.us, that encouraged thousands of Americans to send over 50,000 faxes Boxer as well President Obama and all 100 Senators voicing their opposition to the huge tax on energy known as “cap-and-trade” and government healthcare
- And, we have the support of 58% of all the elected Republican officials in the state, including Congressman Tom McClintock
I am the only formally announced candidate for the Republican nomination. But, without additional support, Republican kingmakers who value celebrity above experience and wealth above principle may encourage someone else to run. This someone will be a millionaire who has never been tested in an election. If this person manages to win the primary, they’ll be cut to pieces by Barbara Boxer.
Yet, 2010 should be our year. On issue after issue, President Obama and Senator Boxer are out of step with Californians who are beginning to realize that the stimulus is a trillion dollar failure, a government takeover of healthcare will be a costly disaster, a huge energy tax in the name of global warming will neither create American jobs nor do anything positive for the environment, and an unfair and unwise amnesty for illegal immigrants will undermine rule of law.
Please talk to your neighbors and friends about our effort and consider making a donation to my campaign.
All the best,
