Why would they put money in a primary anyway? That is up to us.

Lesson learned from the spectacular Scuzzy betrayal in NY 23.

Crist is not that horrible. Rubio however ROCKS!

It’s SUPPOSED to be up to us...but, as we’ve found out they’ve been USURPING things a bit....we put a stop to a similar thing here in Oregon a month ago....the Nat’l GOP endorsing a candidate before the PRIMARY, and there are two Repubs running!

Charlie will not get any more money from his close pal Scott Rothstein.

Maybe the GOP and Cornyn know about Charlie’s close friendship with Scott Rothstein.

Cornyn has turned RINO and will likely not be in office after his next election.

They must have got my reply to their survey/solicitation. With a Sharpie in huge letters I wrote “NOT ONE THIN DIME - YOU SUPPORTED RINO CRIST IN AN OPEN PRIMARY”

Maybe Crist can steal some of our taxpayer dollars in the form of "Obama money."

Interesting title. When Cornyn runs away from RINOs it’s a good thing.

This is hugh and series! The NRSC endorsed Suntan Charlie when he announced he was running...Tuesday's results must have given them a change of heart!

Is Cornyn a RINO? What has he done or said that makes you say that?

If Charlie Crist is a bit dirty where Mr. Rothstein is concerned, most probably there is more dirt in other closets.

“Is Cornyn a RINO? What has he done or said that makes you say that?”

I agree - instead of calling everyone RINOs, how about we base it on something?

What did Cornyn vote against that was critical to conservatives?

This is an early dividend from the Republican Party’s Scozzafava fiasco.

I don’t think Cornyn is a RINO, but I think we need a staunch Conservative like Jim DeMint running the NSCC.
