Conservative revolt

Posted By on Thu, May 18, 2006 at 5:47 AM

An interesting story in Pennsylvania, where conservative Republicans turned out more moderate Republicans in legislative races. The Club for Growth, which has been pounding Gov. Huckabee as too liberal for a national candidacy, was a player in the outcomes.

The results drew cheers from conservatives nationally, many of whom voice similar criticisms of Republican incumbents in Washington and have threatened their own revolts.

The Fiscal Restraint Coalition, a network of organizations calling for smaller government, sent out an e-mail message saying the election showed "that the fiscal restraint message is a winner."

Captain's Quarters, a conservative blog, said the election would "serve notice on the G.O.P. that it cannot take conservative votes for granted."

Some quick ideas on that:
