The head of tea party group said Wednesday that state Sen. Chris McDaniel should wage a write-in campaign in the November election after losing to Sen. Thad Cochran in a nasty Mississippi primary race.
The leader of a tea party group warned Friday that House GOP leaders will cave to Democrats on the issue of immigration by signing off on a proposal that includes a "suicidal leap for amnesty."
The recent fiscal crisis has opened a major rift between the tea party wing of the Republican Party and business groups that traditionally have backed Republicans, with many business leaders now vowing to counter insurgent candidates.
Details emerge after hundreds of "tea party" members converged in a desolate spot along the Arizona/Mexico border some 70 miles east of Nogales, to support Gov. Jan Brewer's immigration law and quest for citizen security.
Mr. Phillips said Republicans should have learned a lesson from the 1986 immigration bill passed under former President Ronald Reagan, which changed the makeup of the electorate.
"If the Republicans sell us out on amnesty, it is game over for liberty in America," said Mr. Phillips, who also writes a column for the Communities section of The Washington Times.
