“I have been screaming about this for years...why the hell do we allow DEMOCRATS to choose Republican candidates? “
These “open” primaries only serve the GOPe and RINO’s.
It is their last line of defense against conservatives, as
clearly demostrated by Lugar.
When a GOP candidate starts begging for RAT votes and independents, the system NEEDS to be changed. I’m not sure
how that works, but I’m guessing rules are set up by the state GOP. It looks like the Tea Party is going to have to clean house in the State GOP elites as well.
You are absolutely right...the state organizations are the problem, butI am sure the national outfit applies a great deal of 'pressure'.
