We are already primarying 3 House members.
Adam Kinziner - Illinois
Pete Sessions - Texas
Mike Simpson - Idaho

You’re right, we need to primary a lot of them, however Don Young is likely as entrenched as Boehner. He’s a RINO to the worst degree of course. He actually endorsed Mazie Hirono in the Hawaii senate race, but unfortunately Alaska’s politics are 90% controlled by Blagojevich-esque thugs like Murkowski, so I think he’s here to stay.

Jo Bonner retired in Alabama, so it is imperative to get a Tea Party guy in there.

Other RINOS we really have to target.

Greg Walden - Oregon
Rick Crawford - Arkansas
Frank Lucas - Oklahoma
Steve Palazzo - Mississippi
Martha Roby - Alabama
Larry Bucshon - Indiana
Renee Elmers - North Carolina
Aaron Schock - Illinois (This one is crucial)

I would also like primary challenges to emerge for Peter King, the most despicable scum in the House, and Scott Riggell of Virginia who is a class A RINO.

In addition, we have Tom Cotton, Bill Cassidy, Phil Gingrey, Paul Broun, and Jack Kingston (mega-RINO), vacating their seats in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Georgia. That’s 5 more Tea Party opportunities.
If Danies runs in Montana (looks all but certain), there is another seat. Capito is running for senate in West Virginia. Another seat.

2014 is a BIG opportunity year.

” He actually endorsed Mazie Hirono in the Hawaii senate race”

I know, WTH? Is he sleeping with her or something?

He held on by only 300 or so votes in the 2008 primary when Sean Parnell opposed him, there was also a third candidate that got about 9%, I don’t know who she took more votes from. He can be beaten.

Elmers? Crawford? Those surprise me.

In IL the 13th district is best opportunity, establishment Republican Rodney Davis who was appointed to the GOP nomination last time when when incumbent dropped out, faces his first primary and is opposed by conservative former Miss America Erika Harold.

Who is running against Kinzinger? Politics1 lists no primary challengers. I’d also like to see him go, I backed Don Manzullo in the last primary, a shame we lost him, low key backbencher type but a solid voting record.

That list of 8 supposed “other RINOs we really have to target” seems wrong to me. Just because someone casts one or two votes one doesn’t like doesn’t maje him a RINO, for Pete’s sake. I mean, I can see Schock in their due to his Combiner background, and Walden is “pro-choice” on abortion (my preference would be for him to run against Oregon Senator Merkley, since he would give us our best chance of winning a Senate seat there, and then have a 100% conservative win the open, very Republican, OR-02 House seat), but if we concentrate on trying to defeat congressmen with 95% conservative voting records we won’t have the money or resources to defeat true RINOs in conservative districts or Democrats in conservative or competitive districts.
