I don’t know how much support the RNC gave. But if you want to throw out the guy who’s held the seat for us for forty years you’ve got to make sure you don’t blow it. I don’t have much patience with people who make a big deal about throwing out the RINOs or Establishment only to lose a safe seat through ineptitude. The trick is not get caught up in one’s own “opinions” about things but to discuss things you can actually do in office.
Mourdock was the only Senate candidate that Romney endorsed.
Akin was not the choice of the tea party and Palin, Sarah Steelman was, and the right, (Palin) gave us the senate victories of Ted Cruz and Deb Fischer.
Moving the party right means risk and we lost the gamble with Mourdock, of course the rinos lost the entire presidency with Mitt.
The establishment, for instance Rove’s PAC has a terrible record.
Don’t listen to these constant efforts to keep conservatism out of the GOP.
