This is about the only conservative upset in the whole election year thus far. I am shocked that IN people didn’t stick the one they recognize.
That’s not entirely true. Utah saw some good solid conservatives beat the insiders’ choices in congressional races, and forced Hatch into a primary to everyone’s surprise. I think we saw a couple surprises in other states too. West Virginia comes to mind, but I can’t remember the specifics. We also have seen guys like Mandel in Ohio move to the front of the pack in Senate primaries.
Not sure how many states have already voted in primaries (for example here in FL ours isn’t until August).
Shocked? You really shouldn’t be. This is the first real opportunity we’ve had to unseat this RINO rather than having the GOP decide for us and we took it.
Far from just bumbling along in a haze, we’ve managed to achieve quite a lot in this state over the past few years, the most recent being the passage of RTW legislation. Many people across the state and the nation worked really hard to make this happen. Maybe you could throw some kudos their way instead of snark.
Not so. Two weeks ago, we Pennsylvanians rejected a GOP establishment nominee for U.S. Senate. In fact, he finished third behind two TEA Party backed candidates.
Lugar is no conservative
