GOP Majority Leader Asks Dems to Help Him Beat Conservatives


House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is recruiting Democrats to help him defeat a conservative running for the U.S. Senate from Indiana:
The Young Guns Network, a group affiliated with House Republican majority leader Eric Cantor, is encouraging Democrats in Indiana to vote in the May 8 GOP primary for incumbent senator Dick Lugar. Politico's Maggie Haberman first reported that the YG Network has been sending mailers to Indiana voters reminding Democrats and independents that they can register to vote in the open primary and encouraging those folks to vote for Lugar and against his conservative challenger, Richard Mourdock...

...the rest of the mailing criticizes Mourdock's conservative views on eliminating federal education spending and says the choice is "between extreme cuts and mainstream Indiana leadership"
The GOP's new "big tent" philosophy: Big enough to include borrow-and-waste Dems, small enough to keep conservatives out.

Contact Eric Cantor and his "Young Guns Network" via email and on Facebook and Twitter:

  • $100,000 could go a long way to supporting a Republican against a Democrat this year in a competitive House race. Is helping a six-term Senate incumbent who's not so conservative try to beat back a conservative primary challenge by someone who would hold the Senate seat for the GOP really the best use of that money?

  1. Sigh, if only. As the two party system, long since broken becomes the one party system of this soon to be forgotten republic.

    Oh well. Might as well get used to shoveling shit against the tide.

    1. Sometimes I get discouraged, thinking we can never win. But even if we lose, at least we can give 'em hell.

  2. I noticed in my studies that Eric Cantor gets a good deal of bankster support.
    I also wrote this once upon a time about Dick Lugar: Dick Lugar Has a lot of Friends.

  3. A certain amount of "business as usual" and cronyism is to be expected, but this is beyond the pale.

  4. The more I open my eyes to the Republican party, the faster I run. They are statists just like the Democrats and they have the people fighting between themselves trying to prove only the other party subscribes to the statist beliefs.

    2. Thank you, but be sure to thank the Left Coast Rebel who is another blogger who can't be bought off by the Republican establishment.

    1. They have showed it a lot since 9/11/2001.

    2. Indeed, Bungalow Bill. Indeed. It simply seems that now they have the idiocy and arrogance to broadcast it with impudence.

      GOP hatred of True Conservatism, (and you know who you are), is becoming too commonplace for my liking. These Statists have even infiltrated the blogosphere under the guise of being conservatives. Yikes.

  6. On BBCW today, I expanded on this piece showing how Cantor has donated through his PAC to other candidates who once vowed to dismantle the Department of Education. http://bungalowbillscw.blogspot.com/2012/04/eric-cantors-richard-mourdoch-attack.html
