IMHO there are no good contemporary 'rats so what's going on here? Has the Idaho TPE been infiltrated already? Admittedly, Ward has no record, but that doesn't mean much when your opponent is someone who voted for Pelosi and will again. And, Minnick may have been allowed to vote against stimulus and health bills because the 'rats didn't need his vote.

I don’t like this ‘endorsing peeps’ thing very much.....because I believe the Tea Party to be ‘leaderless’....but that’s JMHO.

The loons who endorsed the Democrat are not capable of seeing the big picture.
The more wins for the Democrats = Democrat majority = Pelosi
continues as Speaker of the House.
also Democrats will again have the chairmanship of the Committees and the majority on the Committees.
It is this same all or nothing crowd who helped with Obama’s win in 08.

In my opinion, if there was a Democrat that could be endorsed, it would be Minnick. But, I would have had to insist that he publicly guarantee that he would not vote for Pelosi as Speaker under any circumstance in order to get that endorsement.
The problem being, collecting on that promise. AKA, Bart Stupak.

Just a bunch of idiots in Idaho... they did not get my permission... and it is just as valid as theirs.

Very disappointed. Hope we all learned the lesson of Bart Stupak. Whether any candidate get the endorsement of the Tea Party is not important anymore. I say at this point, we as conservative need to identified the right candidate and put them in office. It time to kick these Pelosi follower out of office. Just remember, there are no Blue Dog Democrat, instead they are a bunch of Laugh Dog Democrat. I rest my case.

Do a search on “Tea Party Express” and hijack. A number of blogs have noted a close link between the TPE and Russo Marsh and Rogers, a GOP lobbying firm. Why is Sarah Palin involved? I haven’t the foggiest.

I think the TPE desperately wants to claim the mantle of bipartisanship - meaning, they need to find a democrat or two to support. This figure this guy is the best they can find.

The Tea Party Express is a PAC and is not the grassroots Tea Party Patriots. The local TPP cannot endorse a candidate due to election laws...
