Tea party and conservative groups have been able to pick a clear favorite in most of this year's Senate GOP primaries — but that's not the case in Nebraska, where four candidates, all claiming conservative bragging rights, are running.
Conservative superPac FreedomWorks has endorsed the primary challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the upcoming Republican primary in Kentucky.
Tea partyers apparently have a New Year’s resolution: Fight the Internal Revenue Service and halt the agency’s new regulatory clamp-down on tax-exempt groups.
There's no better reason than the Tea Party for conservatives to be excited heading into November. Initially dismissed as a passing fad, the Tea Party has secured a prominent place in the debate and pushed our politics in a more fiscally conservative direction.
Cynical pundits who insist that the tea party is dead or irrelevant must rethink their message now that Richard Mourdock publicly credited "thousands" of devoted tea party volunteers for ensuring his defeat of Sen. Richard G. Lugar in the Indiana Republican primary Tuesday. Declarations of the grass-roots movement's demise appear premature.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's appearance at an upcoming tea party rally is creating a rift between different arms of the grass-roots movement, with one side arguing that Mr. Romney "is an establishment hack posing as an outsider."
The Tea Party movement was christened officially on Feb. 19, 2009, when Rick Santelli, reporting from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for CNBC, broke into what Dick Armey, former House Republican majority leader and chairman of FreedomWorks, and Matt Kibbe, FreedomWorks' president and chief executive, call "the rant heard 'round the world."
Matt Kibbe, FreedomWorks PAC's president, said both Mr. Sasse and Mr. Osborn are "great people" but said he had to decide which of them would be more likely to stand up to the GOP establishment.
"At this point, it is clear that Shane Osborn formed allegiances with Mitch McConnell and the K Street lobbying class," Mr. Kibbe said Friday. "For us, that progression away from the grassroots has tipped the balance."
