i thought palin was a tea partier darling; since her horse lost, doesn't this make it sort of a split decision for the tea partiers?

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/USA-Update/2014/0127/Trey-Radel-resigns-from-Congress-in-wake-of-cocaine-scandal-video

Rep. Trey Radel of Florida, a once-rising star in the tea party movement, said in his resignation letter Monday that he can no longer 'fully and effectively serve,' after a conviction for buying cocaine.

So the Tea Party retained a seat formerly held by a coke snorting Tea Party Congressman?  Color me impressed.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

Radel resigned. Clawson wasn't running against him; he won a primary against other Republican candidates. Sounds like victory to me.

My point is the district is conservative.  When a Tea Party candidate takes a moderate district I'll take notice.  Until then I'll continue to believe they are a minority subset of the GOP.
