Tea Party: No More Doles, McCains, Romneys

Following President Barack Obama’s re-election victory on Tuesday, one Tea Party group is vowing “no retreat” in its quest to find candidates with “clear conservative records” instead of “weak-kneed” Republicans.

“We’ve had Bob Dole, we’ve had (Gerald) Ford, we had (John) McCain, and now we did (Mitt) Romney, and they lost…because those guys do not necessarily reflect what I think the majority of conservatives, probably the majority of Americans, truly believe,” said Scottie Hughes, news director for the Tea Party News Network.

Hughes added that a desirable conservative candidate is someone who advocates “core principles,” such as liberty, freedom, and limited government, which were so important to the Founding Fathers.
