She’s no Bachmann or Palin, she’s pro-choice, just think Snowe, Collins, Hutchinson, and Scozzafova, and you’ve got McMahon all from the same RINO mold. I’m sure Newt and the GOP establishment will be pulling for her too.
You make a good point. In some constituancies, unfortunately, a RINO is the only kind of Republican who can win and just one more of them would have been enough to stop that horrible health care bill from passing.
I agree with you about Rob Simmons. He’s the strongest general election nominee regardless of what you may hear from McMahon or Schiff supporters. He won several House terms in a Congressional district that leans Democratic in Presidential years by 10+ points. He lost his last race by less than 500 votes in the bloodbath of 2006. Bottom line, he can beat Dodd and win votes from Democrats and independents who want the incumbent out.
