Goode is the former incumbent (1997-2009), a DINO turned Republican (he gave Democrats heartburn when he served in the VA legislature). He had an excellent record, but ran a poor campaign in ‘08 in a seat he shouldn’t have lost. Given the climate, if he wants it, he could get it back. I’d oppose his potentially running 3rd party if Sen. Hurt gets the nod, because that would only serve in keeping the Dem in his seat.

Not to single you out....
But...this nonsense is why we have RINOs in the GOP. Real conservatives vote conservative....and vote conservative if the independent is the conservative and the GOP is a Liberal RINO.
Fraud cons like Mark Levin and others...who tell people not to vote for a third party conservatives...are what is killing the GOP....and end up losing elections with liberals
If Hurt isn’t a Pinko—RINO the Tea Party should support him. BUT if he’s is a leftist he should be opposed by a 3rd Party with the full support of the Tea Part Right! I believe a 3rd Party—with the right message could win. BUT—only if the GOP candidate would be worse than the Democrat.
