Skip to comments.Snowe removal in 2012?

She wasn't on the ballot last week, but Tuesday was a bad night for Sen. Olympia Snowe. With conservative insurgents taking on GOP incumbents across the country, Snowe is a prime target for a Tea Party challenge in 2012. To fend off such a challenge, Snowe might have pointed to the failed candidacy of Christine O'Donnell in Delaware and warned Tea Party activists that if they want to hand a Republican seat to the Democrats the best way to do it would be to replace her on the ballot.
But that argument lost some of its currency when Tea Party favorite Paul LePage was elected Maine's first Republican governor since 1995.

Nah - you have to pry these fossils out of their cushy sinecures.
Time to scrape the barnacles.
*** Time to scrape the barnacles. ***
I was pleased to read that the tea partyers are already making plans to put Snowe in dry dock.
Some of us are already getting warmed up to throw her out on her ass.
Without Olympia Snowe, there would be no Obamacare. She cast the lone, deciding vote that moved it out of committee. Remember that.
Ooh, someone from Maine. Good luck to you!!
Yeah, she should be target number one in the GOP...when does her henchmate come up, 2014? Hopefully we still have a country by then.
The twisted sisters of Maine and Lindsay Graham need to go.
The sooner we kick these parasites out of office the better. We can start with Snowe, but Collins and archjackass Lindsey Graham will be in the air before she hits the sidewalk.
Oh no I'm so scared by that scenario. Go away Snowe, just go away.
Term limits or a maximum age to run are LONG overdue.
Time for Snowe to drift away
better to have a democrat who votes like a democrat (and takes the blame for the results) than a republican who simpers and bridles at being stroked by the marxist into casting a “bipartisan” vote for financial enslavement
Best to quietly survey her state before doing anything counter productive.
Perhaps the threat of a strong opponent will keep her in line for the next two years.
Please, let it happen!.
If they find a good challenger to Snowe, that candidate will have plenty of money - it will come in from all over the country. The icky sisters of Maine have been thorns in the sides of conservatives for far too long.
Wow, is that a snow remover? That is impressive.
LePage’s victory last week makes this possible.
He sure isn't talking about me, you silly sounding mullet
The Republicans will take control of the Senate in 2012 regardless of whether or not they win the Maine seat.
There is zero risk in removing Snowe in a primary. Move that plow full speed ahead!
If...and that is a very big IF, we can defeat Olympia Snowe in the primaries we are certain to lose in the general election.
I’m all for it in order to get a liberal Republican out of office.
