I wrote the following article today for The Hill’s Congress Blog:
http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/politics/129201-nebraska-tea-party-has-expectations-of-new-congress – Link Inactive, See below
As you may or may not know, we have multiple tea parties in Nebraska. They do not all get along by any stretch. But since the Senate was not taken, thanks to shenanigans in Nevada, Alaska, and Delaware, we need to temper our expectations and build upon the good we have already done.
If the Senate Republicans do not show any backbone, we must be prepared to remove them in the primaries. If they try to run as independents at that point, we must be prepared for two opponents and be more equipped to take them on than we were this year.
Though this article focuses on Congress, it is the local races we cannot forget. School boards, etc. are the fertile ground where the next conservative stars can start from and build up to taking on a House or Senate race. The Unicameral here in Nebraska is a very good place, and we cannot let liars and fakes deceive us any longer.
Editor Note: The Hill took down the original article because I referred to Jeff Fortenberry having issues on the Stimulus that the Tea Party objected to. For the record, Fortenberry voted for the additional Stimulus funding, but not the original funding. This caused 2 people to file to run against him in the primary.Please view the text of a revised post at http://su.pr/2YMFfv
