Politico is reporting that former candidate for the US Senate from Kansas, Dr. Milton Wolf, is in talks with independent candidate Greg Orman:
Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen. Pat Roberts in a bitter Republican primary fight, is considering some political payback: Endorsing Kansas independent Greg Orman, sources said Thursday night.
But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election.
Good for him, and if Orman will pledge to caucus with Republicans he could do the GOP a world of good by endorsing Orman rather than out-of-touch porker Pat Roberts. In fact, for Wolf to endorse Roberts after the grotesque attacks Roberts conducted on Wolf would lead one to question Wolf’s sanity.
This year the petty and vindictive NRSC, acting at the behest of the petty and vindictive Mitch McConnell undertook one of the most disgusting interventions in party primaries ever undertaken by any party apparatus. They launched a series of blatantly dishonest and scurrilous ads that painted any challenger to a GOP incumbent at either racist or corrupt or both. In the process of pulling a crop of septuagenarian corruptocrats over the finish line they burned through bales of contributor cash and any goodwill the GOP base may have had for McConnell, the NRSC, or anyone they support.
Rather than looking for principled candidates, the NRSC has supported men so senile that they can’t find meetings they are scheduled to attend and men who are so out of touch with their home state that they don’t even have a residence there.
Now the NRSC is asking the people they called racists and idiots to give them money. Take this email, for instance:
After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post’s statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on.
The answer is simple – the Democrats are spending over $40 million more than the Republicans in battleground races. For weeks, our candidates have been holding on, despite a relentless barrage of negative ads – but we need your help now or it’s over.
I know that times are tough, that’s why we’re fighting so hard to bring new leadership that will turn things around. But, if we don’t rally together now – as a team – then we will lose as individuals.
Can we count on …read more
