for a good laugh, I set myself up on the Club for Growth e-mail list. I love to see what Democrats they target and I especially love to see them promote primary challenges to Republicans….especially when they are Republicans that we are targetting…like Mark Kirk.
Recently, the CfG sent out an e-mail complaining about 8 RINO’s who voted in favor the “dangerous cap and trade bill” last Friday. They are looking for viable candidates to run primary challenges against these 7 (McHugh is the 8th vote but he’s retiring)
Bono Mack, Mary (CA-45)
Castle, Mike (DE-AL)
Kirk, Mark (IL-10)
Lance, Leonard (NJ-07)
LoBiondo, Frank (NJ-02)
Reichert, Dave (WA-08)
Smith, Chris (NJ-04)
I can’t help but notice that Democrats ran strong challenges in several of these districts and are primed to do so again. It would certaintly work to our benefit if we gave the CfG a little boost in helping to find some viable primary challengers to these Republican candidates.
Does anybody have any knowledge of potential Republican candidates in these races that we could give some encouragement to get into these races or give the CfG some encouragement to try and get them in themselves??
