What If People Actually Vote for Hard-Right, Tea Party Republicans?

By: Wednesday August 4, 2010 10:01 am

There has been much hope–or dread, depending on which party you support–that the embrace of arch-conservative and Tea Party-backed candidates in contest primaries could seriously cost the Republican Party several Senate seats this November. By my count, the GOP could lose at least five Senate race as a result of embracing a more conservative challenger [...]
