Tom Price Sides With Karl Rove
U.S. Congressman Tom Price
(R-GA), who is eyeing a Senate bid in Georgia, "commended Karl Rove's controversial Conservative Victory Project this morning," according to a report by National Review Online
The Conservative Victory Project
is actually an anti-conservative effort launched recently by the Republican establishment in Washington, DC to defeat grassroots conservatives they deem "unelectable" in primary elections.
Of course, the establishment doesn't have the slightest clue who is electable and who is not. This is just an excuse for them to oppose viable conservatives in favor of wishy-washy moderates who don't really care about limiting government.
Asked if he was comfortable with Karl Rove's effort to attack conservatives during a primary with television ads, "Price said he understood why that's occasionally necessary."That's a very disappointing statement from someone who claims to be a conservative.
Price said it would be exciting to join Senators Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee in the Senate, but if the so-called Conservative Victory Project had existed in 2010, it would have opposed and perhaps defeated those very senators.
Congressman Price also said he disliked Republican primary elections in general. "I have some discomfort with all Republican primaries because theyre all family squabbles," he said.
Again, this is the kind of thing we're used to hearing from establishment politicians who don't want to be forced to defend their records and prove themselves to conservative voters.
The Republican establishment is becoming increasingly hostile to the conservative movement and Congressman Price should openly and aggressively oppose their efforts, not defend them.
We hope our members in Georgia will talk some sense into Congressman Price because if he's going to side with the establishment on this, there's no reason for the grassroots to support his bid for the U.S. Senate.
