Compare this with the House campaign body, the NRCC. After getting clobbered over the NY-23 race and Dede Scozzafava, the NRCC took a hands off approach and let local voters choose their candidates. Not the NRSC. It doubled up around the country igniting a civil war with the grassroots a civil war that would have never happened but their getting into Florida and doubling down.
The NRSCs argument amounts to telling the world that voters exercising their right to pick their candidates are stupid and Jim DeMint is stupid for siding with the voters.
One final thought the NRSC would have you believe that Arlen Specter was more viable than Pat Toomey and Charlie Crist was more viable than Marco Rubio.
Would you rather have Pat Toomey or Arlen Specter?
Would you rather have Marco Rubio or Charlie Crist?
Youre damn right it was a necessary fight and the NRSC and RNC have no one to blame but themselves.
