    Some people are tired of settling for "55%", yeah we might lose that seat, but better the seat go to a democrat then to a RINO. Don't you get the rise of the Tea Party?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So then. You're apparently okay with passing Obamacare, Cap and Trade, more stimuluses, more welfare, tax increases, and goodness knows what else... as long as it means there aren't any damned dirty RINOs in the Senate. Hey, the GOP may be a permanent minority helpless to do anything as liberal bill after liberal bill passes, but at least they'll be full of conservatives in a permanent powerless minority!

    They won't be able to pass all that Dav, they don't have 60 seats now, and they WILL lose the House.

    Besides, what good is are a few sometimes Republicans who VOTE with teh Dem's on big issues?

    Besides, the guy is pro-guncontrol, that right there makes him worth knocking out.

    He might as well be running as the Communist candidate.
    If that is true why is Castle in such a tight race?

    Exactly. I'd rather loose a seat than have a rino who votes with the dems anyway

    Can you be more specific as to why the Dem candidate has more chance of winning than the TP candidate?

    I'm not familar with the race, so I'm just inquireing.

    He is part of the problem, not the solution.

    I'd rather see a Democrat win, than a RINO who plays for the other team but wears our uniform.
    I don't want the D's to have cover for the destruction they're wreaking.

    The electorate in this case is very blue and the TP vs Establishment Repub are in their primary.
