GOP Establishment Plans to Exorcise Tea Party in 2014 Election

tea-party-rally-lansingFor those of you who think the establishment leadership of the Republican Party is looking out for its conservative base guess again. All they care about is their own power, and they see it threatened by a base who will not be force fed moderate or liberal candidates. They think the Tea Party is costing them elections when it’s the leaderships own choices that is costing them elections. 

Here is an article from the Gateway Pundit:

The GOP establishment plans to exorcise the Republican Party of the Tea Party and put in place more moderate candidates in 2014.


The Illinois Review reported:

Writing in National Journal, Beth Reinhard reports that the Republican Party is gearing up to exorcise itself of conservative and Tea Party elements it believes will lead the GOP to defeat in 2014.

“Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” said former Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio, whose new political group, Defending Main Street, aims to raise $8 million to fend off Tea Party challenges against more mainstream Republican incumbents. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.”

Tactics being discussed among Republican consultants, donors, and party leaders include “running attack ads against Tea Party candidates; overthrowing Ron Paul’s libertarians who have significant influence in the Iowa and Minnesota state parties; promoting open primaries over nominating conventions; and countering conservative organizations like Heritage Action, the Club for Growth, and FreedomWorks.

The group Defending Main Street was set up earlier this year to protect incumbents.
