New Mexico Senate race: Rand Paul opposes Heather Wilson, Christie supports: Obamacare repeal opposed.
They call her RINO.
So here we go again.
It’s Indiana in New Mexico. On June 5th.
The race: the Republican nomination for a vacant US Senate seat.
This time the part of insurgent Richard Mourdock is being played by New Mexico conservative businessman Greg Sowards.
And Queen RINO?
The feminized Richard Lugar of the piece? That would be former New Mexico GOP Congresswoman Heather Wilson. A member of a GOP group that opposes the repeal of Obamacare.
Sowards is being supported by reform conservatives, most notably Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul. Said Paul in his endorsement:
Greg supports dramatically shrinking government. Greg supports the 5-year balanced budget proposed by myself and Senators [Jim] DeMint and [Mike] Lee. He agrees that our future generations of Americans do not deserve to be enslaved by debt, and we need more champions like him in the U.S. Senate.
Wilson is the GOP Establishment favorite. She is being supported by the usual suspects, including Alaska’s RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski. As seen here at the Huffington Post, Murkowski was the featured speaker at a Carlsbad fundraiser for Wilson in April of this year. In the article, Murkowski is cited favorably for her support for Planned Parenthood — and for something else.
Let’s let the HuffPo describe Wilson’s senatorial fundraiser from Alaska. Reports the HuffPo of Murkowski, in a story about Murkowski’s endorsement of Wilson:
She criticized GOP presidential candidates for not condemning right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh for calling Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.” Wilson’s campaign did not return a request for comment about whether she agreed with Murkowski’s comments.
Which is to say, Wilson couldn’t quite bring herself to take on Rush — although as Queen RINO she’s touched every other liberal Republican base out there, thus drawing support from the left-leaning Murkowski. Then again, presumably neither Murkowski nor Wilson are fans of the “Limbaugh Rule.” As articulated by Rush Limbaugh in September 2010 as that year’s elections approached. The Limbaugh Rule as stated by its author:
In an election year when voters are fed up with liberalism and socialism — and when the fate of the country as founded is at stake — you vote for the most conservative Republican in the primary. Period.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
