The National Republican Senatorial Committee refused to fund the Tea Party darling in Delaware Christine O’Donnell, who kicked out of office the establishment Republican Castle in the state primary yesterday.
This was the ugliest decision the Republican elite could have made.
When folks donate to the NRSC they expect them to fight for every senatorial candidate. They should not discriminate between the glamorous former CEO lady and the woman who struggled through home foreclosure.
People expect the NRSC to support all senatorial candidates that folks moved forward in legitimate Republican primaries. It is not the Republican’s elite who decides who is worthy to be Senator and who is not – it is the voters in the primaries.
It doesn’t matter if it is O’Donnell, Alvin Green, Charley Wrangle or Barack Obama: it is voters who have a say, not some politburo.
The Republicans fight united for the tax-cuts for the rich, but the Republican elite would not support their senatorial candidate because she experienced how it feels to get bankrupt paying for college education. She knows how it feels to default on mortgage. But the NRSC is only supporting fancy-shmancy Castle-like candidates?
The people in Delaware have spoken. All year long we hear the Republicans lecture us on state rights and power to the local communities. It is time for the Republican elite to walk the walk shoulder to shoulder with Christine O’Donnell because ‘we the people’ said so.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee refuses to support not just O’Donnel but all the thousands of folks that voted for her hoping she will represent them in Congress. The NRSC is betraying the republican primary voters in Delaware. Shame on you!
I hope that while I am writing this post the NRSC is reversing their decision.
