The Tea Party Express issued the following statement in response to preliminary reports that the National Republican Senatorial Committee would not support their own nominee for U.S. Senate in Delaware:
"The National Republican Senatorial Committee has reportedly said they will not support their own nominee for U.S. Senate in Delaware. This is a rash statement that hopefully they will reconsider once good judgment sets in.
"The NRSC tried to meddle in the vote recount for liberal Republican Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. Now they say they aren't committed to supporting their own nominee in Delaware? When will this insanity stop?
"We encourage the NRSC to take a night off, get some sleep, and reconsider their rash statements. It is because of inexcusable conduct in Delaware and Alaska that so many conservatives have turned to the Tea Party Express, offering their support and their donations. These people have lost faith in the NRSC as just another big-government, Washington, D.C.-based organization that has contributed to the problems this country currently faces.
"If the NRSC is committed to defeating Democrats in November, then it is time for them to honor their mission statement and do just that. If they fail to do so, then they can expect millions of conservatives to continue to steer their donations and volunteer hours elsewhere.
"Wake up NRSC, the reason the tea party movement has grown into such a powerful force is because of the failures of establishment organizations such as yours to honor the principles of the Republican Party platform. You tried to force through the most liberal Republican in Congress on the voters of Delaware and they rejected you. Wake up, you are defying your own base, and will end up an irrelevant and impotent organization that serves to only amuse the corrupt political establishment in Washington, D.C.
"The Tea Party Express will back Christine O'Donnell in the general election along with every other candidate we've endorsed. We trust adults at the NRSC will come to their senses and realize that the people have spoken, and it's time for the NRSC to represent the Republicans it is supposed to represent."
Way to go Tea Party Express!!
I vote the TPX takes over the NRSC!!

NRSC endorses Crist
Thats all you need to know about this waste of a group.
If the republican party wants to declare themselves the new Whig party then so be it.
John Cornhole and Michael Steal are abominations who must be aborted.
Bravo!! Great response to the Ruling Class who gave us McLame and thereby gave us the Mullah and his cohorts in Congress who are destroying our country, bankrupting us, and stealing our freedom including the DeathCare that will destroy us all.
"Yes We Can" - OUT
"Don't Tread On Me" - IN
Steele is a spineless, gutless eunuch. He must be replaced ASAP.
6 weeks to get the independents and Reagan Democrats on board.
Well, if they don’t reconsider, they will lose about 1/3 of their support (or more). They are fast becoming the idiots of this election cycle.
NSRC... Just think of the funds you will lose if you continue this path!
Did Michael Steele state that he will not support O’Donnell? Why are people saying this? I have not seen a statement from Steele at all.
“Way to go Tea Party Express!!”
Right on. Boy what a night, what an election cycle. What an eye opener.
“While I believe Marco Rubio has a very bright future within the Republican Party, Charlie Crist is the best candidate in 2010 to ensure that we maintain the checks and balances that Floridians deserve in the United States Senate.”
-NRSC chairman John Cornyn
You have insulted us for the last time. You publicly announce your lack of support for a candidate because your hand picked guy didnt win?
Whose side are you on, really? Many of us feel you and the party have been playing an insider game far too long and enough is enough!
So long you as you are head of the RNC I will not take your calls or even open your letters.
The Republican voter has changed and you and your friends or the cabal of country club Republicans are dinosaurs.
Giving money and support to Crist, Specter, Scuzzyfavor, Chaffee, Snow, Collins? Unacceptable!
Have fun. That little light in the corner of your eye is your career dissipation light.
Have a nice day!
Not Steele, it was Cornyn(sp).
Time to see what can be done to defund the NRSC. They don’t represent Tea partiers. They don’t represent conservatives. They don’t represent Republicans. They just represent their country club clique of pocket liners.
Wow, that is a very powerful statement -- one that should chill the blood of any rational person. It's the kind of warning that one ignores at his peril.
I really hope that Jim DeMint is installed as chairman of the NRSC next session. Cornyn has been an absolute disaster for the Republican party, throwing money to RINOs who bolt the GOP to run against conservative candidates who have all gone on to be the party’s standard bearers.
No impartial observer can deny this, no matter how chummy they may be with Cornyn.
Write them a check for $500.00. Void the check with a large RED magic marker. Put it in an envelope, along with a tea bag, and mail it to them.
