Skip to comments.Are establishment republicans signaling that they refuse to support Deb Fischer?

There's a story on the national journal about how tensions are rising again between the party's establishment and Demint.
Does this mean that the GOP-E is planning on doing what it did in 2010 - that is, not support every candidate we the people nominated?
Let's examine this logically: Deb Fischer is up in the polls by 18 points, yet the republicans have still found some reason to go out and whine. Why?
There's only one answer. They're sick of us conservatives thinking that this is a conservative party, and they don't like it. They want the good old by network to remain intact.
I hope people will keep an eye on this, I know it's got my interest.
We’re VERY proud of you butterdezillion—AND your fellow Nebraskan voters! Nice Work.
Now it’s up to Texans to light it up for Ted Cruz.
Already voted for Cruz....eventually these RINOs will figure out that we are taking these seats from the rats and the RINOs.....
I am looking forward to working to retire the old battleaxe.
This kind of activity out of the GOP is why I left the GOP. Decline to State for me.
I doubt that they’ll cut Deb Fischer loose. She is running comfortably ahead of her opponent in a solidly Republican state. Even if the establishment loses a primary, they’ll go through the motions of supporting the nominee, except under unusual circumstances.
“At some point logic would seem o suggest that if conservatives win very many more primaries against RNC Left-Republicans then the Republican Party must ally with the Democrat Party to fight the common enemy.”
That’s pretty much what has been happening since 1964. So far, the score is E’s 11, Conservatives 2, in presidential elections.
...With Reagen being 1, who is #2?
Sometimes, the GOPe makes me want to throw up. (Think “Mike Castle”.) Other times, I figure the moneymen are simply allocating resources in as efficient manner as possible. If Deb is up 18 points, the moneymen may choose to allocate (limited) resources to more competetive races. It doesn’t mean they are against her winning.
LOL, same here. When the clerk said I had to denote a party or preference, I asked her, "What's the least offensive?" She immediately responded, "Decline to state". So that's how I registered.
We really have only two choices; take it back and make it conservative or abandon it and start anew. The latter might take several election cycles, during which the RATs would have an advantage and could finish destroying capitalism and freedom.
Barry Goldwater. That’s why I chose 1964.
Yes. John Cornyn and Johanns want Bob Kerrey elected cause they like serving in the minority.
Frankly you could put the full financial support of the GOP behind Kerrey and it wouldn’t make a difference.
I’m think I’ll send Deb Fischer a donation.
