“Stronger Than Even in Reagan Years”
Richard A. Viguerie, one of the founders of modern conservatism and author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, noted that voters in the Senate Republican Primary Elections in Colorado and Connecticut favored conservative candidates. Viguerie is optimistic about the outlook for the upcoming general election.
“In Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary elections in Colorado and Connecticut, the voters favored candidates who are un-fettered to Washington Republicans.
“If elected in November, Ken Buck and Linda McMahon will increase the numbers of the small government constitutional caucus in the U. S. Senate.
“Republican primary voters are continuing to move the Republican Party significantly to the right. The 2011-2012 Congress is likely to be the most conservative ever.
“Thanks to President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid, the conservative movement has been re-launched stronger than even in the Reagan years,” Viguerie concluded.
