I wonder if the usual gop-e FReepers will berate these elected officials for “preventing a republican majority”!
The RINOs sure do love party unity.
No, those trolls won’t show up. They only rear their ugly heads when moderates win primaries where they sneer at the Tea Party and Christine O’Donnell.
and people question the use of the term RINO —
Oh I’ve seen them slowly oozing in through the cracks after a couple years of silence.
THAT is the BIGGEST REASON to vote AGAINST WARNER!!!!
I will shortly list my Virginia Voter Card on eBay. Might as well get something out of it.
They should never get another dime of GOP support.
UniParty Strikes Again, ping.
Nothing new here...republicans are knwn to eat their own.
Show me how often the RATS vote for republicans!
Stupidity keeps some people for voting for the other party or abstaining from voting which is same as voting for the RAT party.
You’ll have MANY bidders.
People wonder why I only give to candidates.
Abner Linwood Holton is as much a Republican as Joe Biden. His son-in-law is Timmy “The Eyebrow” Kaine.
But, but, but Gillespie is a GOP-e, too! Do you think these GOPers are (gasp) homophobic?
Pretty much. I mean Warner’s gonna win in a landslide but ... yeah.
These guys haven’t been supporting republicans in a LONG time.
And it isn’t like Gillespie wasn’t the establishment’s choice . They just like democrats more than republicans. That’s why they are FORMER officials.
