Delaware Senate Race: A Kamikaze Republican and the Tea Party - ABC NewsRep. Mike Castle is considered a slam dunk to capture Joe Biden's old Senate seat. Castle is a pro-abortion rights, pro-gun control Republican who often works with Democrats. Those traits have helped make him the most popular Republican in a state that leans heavily Democratic; Castle has twice been elected governor and was elected as Delaware's sole representative in the House nine times.
Here the National Party is pushing someone merely to fill a seat, to meet a quota. They are missing the reason for the Tea Party, the reason for the outrage in America, and if they don't get it soon, will end up losing a lot of voters disgusted with them.
Here is a guy who stands against much of what the Conservative Base is for. He's pro-abortion, pro-gun control and works with Dems a lot. Great, let him run as a ****ing democrat. The GOP is going to have to change, or it we'll see a fleeing of the base. Where? As most of you know I'm NOT a 3rd party guy, but between Boehners dumb ass comment about "I'd work with Dem's for a Compromise".
