Stunned GOP Establishment Vows ‘No More Surprises’ from Tea Party in 2014
Does no more surprises mean they just expect it now?
Check it out:
One day before Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s historic primary loss, the Wall Street Journal reported: “Immigration’s Primary Effect Muted.” One day after, the newspaper is reporting nothing like the shocking upset will happen again.
“Those senators have been preparing for months and months for whatever might come their way and they won’t be caught off guard,” Brian Walsh, a paid consultant of the National Republican Senatorial Committee told the Journal for a piece headlined “GOP Establishment: No More Surprises Coming.”
“I don’t believe the circumstances we saw in Virginia are going to be replicated in any other Senate races,” Walsh told the WSJ.
The article could easily have served as a response to a Breitbart News article from Wednesday morning, which detailed how Cantor’s defeat could fuel grassroots uprisings in Mississippi, where incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) is in a runoff, and Tennessee, where Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) will face Joe Carr in an August primary.
Other key races include an August contest between Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) and President Obama’s cousin, Dr. Milton Wolf, and in Louisiana where conservative Col. Rob Maness faces Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) in that state’s November “jungle” election.
