Top Bloggers to NRSC: Stay Out of Primaries

Posted by Adam Graham in : Future of Conservatism,Politics

The big guns of the conservative blogosphere have got a message for Senator John Conryn (R-Tx) and the NRSC:

Dear Senator Cornyn, 

We the undersigned believe that the National Republican Senatorial Committee should be committed to serving ALL the members of the Republican Party.

Additionally, the NRSC should be focused on defeating Democrats, not Republicans. Towards that end, we believe it was completely inappropriate for the NRSC to endorse a candidate in the Florida primary race.

Therefore, we request that both you and the NRSC alter your position on the Florida Senate race, maintain neutrality, and promise to spend no money directly or indirectly in that race.

Sincerely yours,

Whatever one thinks of the Florida U.S. Senate race, it shouldn’t be decided by the NRSC and by injecting the NRSC into a primary for an Open Seat, Senator Cornyn has created unnecessary friction within the Republican Party and has shown a disrespect for the Primary process of the people of Florida.

As Morrissey points out, a similar tactic is causing friction among New York Democrats even coming from the far more popular Obama White House.  Already Cornyn is having to dodge questions on Facebook and in blogger conference calls and has a brushfire of anomosity building up. Now would be a good time for a graceful retreat to neutrality.
