More Proof That the Republican Party Is Spiraling Toward Its Final Days of Being Nationally Relevant
Since the dawn of the tea party, I basically had two views of it based on their radical ideology. Either it would be short-lived and quickly squashed within a couple of years, or it would eventually destroy the Republican party.
Well, it appears that it’s going to eventually destroy the Republican party.
See, groups supporting these more radical right-wing candidates who are seeking to “take down” those Republicans they deem too moderate for daring to work with President Obama and Democrats on anything, are out raising their more “established” counterparts by quite a lot.
According to the NYTimes:
“Four Republican-leaning groups with close ties to the party’s leadership in Congress — Crossroads and its super PAC affiliate; the Congressional Leadership Fund; and Young Guns Action Fund — raised a combined $7.7 million in 2013. By contrast, four conservative organizations that have battled Republican candidates deemed too moderate or too yielding on spending issues — FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth Action Fund, the Senate Conservatives Fund, and the Tea Party Patriots — raised a total of $20 million in 2013, according to Federal Election Commission reports filed on Friday.”
