Tea Party Making a Mistake in Nevada

The Tea Party movement in Nevada is on the verge of making a big mistake by chartering itself as a third party and planning to field a candidate for Senate this November.  If they gain any traction, it could very well end up with the re-election of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), who currently looks very vulnerable in his re-election bid.  Having the Tea Party as a third party is a dangerous move, as it sets the stage to splitting the vote.

The Tea Party movement needs to take over the GOP, not stay separate from it.  By defining itself as a third party, it will only serve to splinter the Conservative vote, and hand the Democrats permanent legislative majority.  While standing up for principle is important, some pragmatism is needed in order to get a majority that can work to scale back the growth of government.  If this Nevada Tea Party gets a following, we may see another six years of Senator Harry Reid.

Yep, a bunch of us here in Las Vegas were talking about the exact same thing. No way are we going to throw our vote to a 3rd party when we have the chance to fire Dirty Harry.
We love the Tea Party and all that it stands for but we’re not willing to back anyone except a well funded and sharp spoken Republican in this fight. We’ll support Sue Lowden or Danny Tarkanian in this one. They both lead Reid in the polls right now by double digits. Those two are the front runners and not much being said about the other candidates, so far.
Sue and Danny are both far better than Reid, and hold no contempt for the American people, such as Reid displays.
We’re doing all we can to get our families, friends, and co-workers to vote and fire this bum.
We have to fight his son off too!!! Rory Reid is running for NV Gov.
