Newt Is Right On GOP's 2016 Nom Problem

If you can’t nominate somebody who can win debates and come out stronger, they wouldn’t have a chance to beat Hillary.”

Jerry Moran’s Morons

Erick Erickson, Red State

Moran at the NRSC claims they just saved Roberts' campaign. NRSC’s Comm. Dir. attacks conserv. orgs, their MS strategy painted the base as racist, & Moran thinks donors aren't giving because Mitt lost. Maybe donors just don't want to hitch their wagon to a clown car.
