I think your point is that you will vote for anyone with an R behind regardless of whether or not they are a conservative.
You asked me if it mattered whether Republicans were in office rather than democrats. I gave an example that proved it does.
If someone more conservative than Burr that can beat him and the rat runs for the Senate, I’d support them. Brannon is not that guy and was not that guy in 2014 against Tillis. His campaign last time would have been gangbusters if the electorate was comprised entirely of freepers, but it’s wasn’t and it’s still not. We need strong candidates like Chris McDaniel in MS, who was only beaten with democrat votes, or Joe Carr in TN (who sadly didn’t get attention from so-called conservative leaders who were busy backing less worthy challengers like random doctors in Kansas) to have any hope of beating an incumbent Senator in the primary.
If Burr is renominated I will 100% support him over whatever faggot the communists put up who would vote for a 1000 terrible things that Burr never would, (God forbid) Hillary Supreme Court nominees for instance.
Complain that he’s not good enough all you like, he’s not, few are, but don’t tell me it makes no difference. Tell it to yourself if you like to justify it to your own conscience when you leave the ballot blank in November, but don’t tell it to me.
