Republicans Can Pick Up the Rhode Island Senate Seat

As an ex Rhode Islander who frequently returns to the state, I can report that I received an offensive mailing from this counterproductive campaign. The National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee continues to waste money (money that can be used to help save Senator Santorum or prop up Mike Steele) attacking Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey.

The Axis of Right has and will continue to support Mayor Laffey in his efforts to remove liberal Lincoln Chafee from his Senate seat. Lincoln Chafee opposes tax cuts, a war in Iraq that removed a terrorist-sponsoring dictator from power, and a ban on partial-birth abortion.

You will note Senator Chafee describes his relationship with the White House as a “non-aggression pact.” Senator, what exactly is non-aggressive about announcing your intention to vote against the president in 2004?

If a Democrat wins the Rhode Island Senate seat, the person occupying the seat will be a liberal. Senator Chafee will indeed win the general election if he defeats Mayor Laffey. If that is the case, the “man” occupying the seat will be a liberal. Mayor Laffey probably wins the general election if he defeats Chafee because he is not a conservative’s conservative and his opponenet will be either a nobody (Matt Brown) or a jackass (Sheldon Whitehouse). In that case, the Republicans gain a Senate seat.
