...they knew how many votes they needed in certain counties and the exact number they were shooting for with days to go. And guess what? They weren’t surprised when they won....

I can pretty much vouch for that with what happened in my precinct/county. If this same mechanism exists in South Carolina and they are hitting their numbers, then Cruz has a very good chance of winning SC. 
From what I have seen on the ground of the various Cruz efforts, there is some duplication because they cannot coordinate, but all sides of the operation are leveraging very precise data to generat…

My wife had a short little TV appearance on KDLT from the caucuses. You can catch her at the 1:22 mark. Oh, and yes, that is us waiting in line with my son's cat hat and my extra warm, fuzzy hat. :)
"Of course I’m excited!” said Iowan voter Gwendolyn Jacob. “But I am more excited about the turnout; this was way more than four years ago, so I’m glad to see people getting involved, being enthusiastic. Because our country, we need a strong leader,” she said.

Marco Rubio is pulling away from the rest of the pack.  And unless a ton of mail comes in on Monday, this pretty much sums up the final standings of the race to the top of the Snail Mail campaign in Iowa.  

Today's mailings are representative of one from Carson, one horribly false attack ad from the Huckabee supporting PAC against Ted Cruz, and the now common place two prong method from the Rubio side of things.  One nice mailing from the Rubio campaign and one attack ad against Cruz from the PAC.  

16 = Marco Rubio
13 = Mike Huckabee
9 = Jeb Bush
6 = Ben Carson
5 = Ted Cruz
2 = Scott Walker
2 = Donald Trump
1 = Bobby Jindal
1 = Rick Santorum
1 = Carly Fiorina
1 = Rand Paul

I had a great time again this year at #TrendigitalSF in Sioux Falls. There were many great speakers this year, but we ended on a really high note when +Ronell Smith of +Moz spoke about content, but also mentioned Google+. Anyone who mentions liking Google+ gets high grades in my book!

Thank you, +Curtis Jacob. I had a terrific time. Something about SD that I really appreciate. My biggest regret is not making the time to get to know the city and the downtown businesses. Also, the +Click Rain crew is an exemplary bunch.

Honestly, perhaps CNN owes the entire Republican field of candidates an apology. It's been reported in various forms that Cruz staff, Rubio staff, and even Santorum himself were all part of encouraging the Carson quitting story. But can we even really blame CNN? It is Carson himself and his staff where the blame needs to be. You certainly don't tell people in the first place that you won't be going to NH for several days. Not going to the next state is a sign that you are quitting. Can we even blame CNN for thinking that?

Caucus time is almost upon us. So let me explain....

Why I am NOT voting for (the short version).....

1) Trump -- Do I really need to explain this one? It is all about himself and there is no desire to follow the constitution. Just look at his Twitter feed for the past few years.

2) Rubio -- I feel he is not the same person we see on TV, in the debates, or even in person. His campaign is run by several people who were Romney campaign managers. Which makes since why the PACs that support him are throwing out mailings that fit the very style of the Romney campaign from 4 yeas ago. And this is why I just don't trust him. He has run a very dirty campaign, albeit not as dirty as Huckabee's. He often criticizes Cruz for what he and his own campaign are doing (for instance the voting "shaming" ballots in the news today)

3) Carson -- A great person, but not solid on some key issues. He wants to get rid of the Electoral College. I feel he might be able to be persuaded otherwise if a good conversation were had, but just having that belief alone means he can't be the main person on my ticket. (VP maybe).

4) Bush -- Establishment candidate. And I don't want them (which in my opinion now also disqualifies Rubio and perhaps even Trump at this point in the game). I don't think he really ever wanted to run for President. But now he is stuck doing it. I want someone with a healthy passion.

5) Paul -- Although he probably has better constitutional beliefs than many of the other candidates, I don't see him as being solid enough when it comes to Religious Rights. He never talks about or brings up the Bible on his own in any form. Our constitution was built with a moral and religious people in mind.

6) Huckabee -- The PACs that support him are some of the worst when it comes to honesty and truthfulness. It is hard to believe I voted for him 8 years ago. I throw him into the same boat as Rubio now with the two-faced campaigning. Even though PACs and campaigns are not suppose to talk, we all know they do. So if they wanted their supporting PACs to be more truthful in their ads they would be. Oh, and he took the stage with Trump to raise money for Trump's foundation (who knows if that money ever makes it to the veterans), that was a mistake!

7) Kasich -- in the 1990's Kasich was sort of a hero of the conservatives. My how far we have come. It was easy to be conservative then I guess. Kasich is an establishment candidate if their ever was one. I don't think he understands anything other than debt, and I don't think is truly willing to go the extra mile to support the entire conservative/constitutional cause (social issues such as traditional marriage) He wasn't even willing to fight hard against the unions in his own state and Ohio is more conservative than Wisconsin.

8) Christie -- Establishment and not a full rounded conservative. He is probably only slight less liberal than Trump. Establishment candidates are not going to nominate the type of judges I think we need on the supreme court. When I heard him speak in Iowa, I was not impressed with his overall character that he portrayed. I felt too much of Obama's style in him.

9) Fiorina -- She talks well, but there is no history other than her failed Senate run where she went against the conservative in the primary in California. If you are going against a conservative, you had better be even more conservative. She was not.

10) Santorum -- He also made the mistake of taking the stage with Trump. But in the end, even though I voted for him 4 years ago, there is a new candidate in the race this year that aligns even better with the constitution. And at this point Santorum has not chance and we must stop Trump.

So that leaves Cruz.

Yes, I am voting for Cruz. Why?

1) He stands for equality. Take the energy industry for example. He wants to do away with ALL subsidies, no matter what type of energy they deal with. So he in turn supports ALL types of energy and that is the Constitutional way to do it.

2) He stand for Religious liberty for. He has fought hard and won several court cases over the years (some even out of his own pocket) to protect our rights to worship as we wish.

3) He understands the role of government. He realizes that all humans are fallible and that we all have a tendency toward doing what is not right. That means we need a very limited government so as to prevent fallible people from turning our government into a tyranny like the current President has done. This is the one of the biggest reasons. A proper understanding of human nature and God will bring about a proper understanding of Government.

4) He will stand strong even when all others seem to stand against him. He has shown his willingness to stand for what is right even in the face of overwhelming opposition (gang of 8 amnesty, omnibus, and even ethanol for instance)

5) His stances on all the issues are exactly where they should be. I can't find a single issue I disagree with him on.

And there are plenty of other reasons too, but I said this was the short version.

Rand Paul is equal to or more consistent than Ted Cruz on all 5 of your points:

1: Rand is  stronger than Ted. Rand wants to do away with ALL subsidies and doesn't have an interest in big oil.

2: Rand Paul is a more consistent version of Ted Cruz. He stands for religious liberty for every religion which is consistent with the Constitution.

3: Rand Paul, in the footsteps of his father, is the champion of limited government.

4: Ted has been inconsistent on immigration

5: See 1-4

I was preached to tonight.

I actually had a great time tonight at an event with +Glenn Beck, Congressman +King for Congress, and Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame.

I must say, I am extra impressed with Phil Robertson. And the crowd at this particular event enjoyed him too.

With all that said, I think the summary of this event is this: We are all sinners and our founders knew this. Thus they created a system of government that was wholly dependent on a moral and religious people governing themselves with a very limited government. You don't want a candidate that says they will solve everyone's problems. You don't want a candidate that believes they are the answer to everything and that they can make America great again. What you do want is a candidate that understands they are there to obey God and defend the constitution. Everything else will work out correctly if that is the case.

Marco Rubio (or more specifically, he and his PAC) have retaken the lead in sending me the most snail mails.  Today's pre-debate mailings included one from Rubio, one from Cruz, and one from the pro-Rubio Conservative Solutions PAC against Cruz.  

14 = Marco Rubio
12 = Mike Huckabee
9 = Jeb Bush
5 = Ben Carson
5 = Ted Cruz
2 = Scott Walker
2 = Donald Trump
1 = Bobby Jindal
1 = Rick Santorum
1 = Carly Fiorina
1 = Rand Paul

I've got my tickets. :) 
In over 40 years of broadcasting Glenn Beck has never endorsed a candidate for President. Until now. Come hear why Glenn Beck supports Senator Ted Cruz at a rally this Saturday in Sioux Center. Doors open at 3:30 and the event starts at 4:30. Must have a ticket to enter. Tickets are limited. PAID FOR BY KEEP THE PROMISE PAC. NOT AUTHORIZED BY ANY CANDIDATE OR CANDIDATE'S COMMITTEE.
