Memo to GOP: Nominate A Conservative, or LOSE!

Erick Erickson, editor of campaign recently issued a blog post regarding the NY-23 race:

“First, the GOP now must recognize it will either lose without conservatives or will win with conservatives. In 2008, many conservatives sat home instead of voting for John McCain. Now, in NY-23, conservatives rallied and destroyed the Republican candidate the establishment chose.”

“I have said all along that the goal of activists must be to defeat Scozzafava. Doug Hoffman winning would just be gravy. A Hoffman win is not in the cards, but we did exactly what we set out to do — crush the establishment backed GOP candidate.”

New York isn't the only state with third parties. Kentucky has both a Libertarian and a Constitution Party both of which I'm sure would be more then happy run a hard campaign in the General if the Republican party doesn't nominate a principled conservative.

The Paul Campaign follows up on Eric's post thus:
Rand Paul is leading in the latest public polling because he is gaining the trust of Kentuckians who want balanced budgets, honest, market-based health care solutions, and real job creation spurred by capitalism, not socialism.

I hope the establishment will wake up, and listen to the people. Because one way or the other, the people will be heard.

Rand Paul
Trey Grayson
