The Establishment Lost Tonight

Four states voted today and in two key races, the establishment lost.

Kentucky - Rand Paul, son of Texas Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) beat Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Greyson.

In the highly visible Pennsylvania Democratic primary, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) beat sitting U.S. Senator (D-PA, then R-PA, then D-PA). This is a major coup against a thirty-year career politican.

The trend against incumbents and entrenched establishment candidates continues. Two weaks ago, long-time Bob Bennett (R-UT) lost his bid in a primary battle.

This does not bode well for Delaware's Mike Castle. Mike Castle is a career politican and owns the Republican Party in Delaware. He is the problem why the Republican Party here is left of center. He too must go!

  1. Let's also remember that the race in PA-12 was run by a Conservative Democrat running on a T.E.A. Party principled campaign, against Obamacare, against bailouts, etc. That, altough a save the Democrat Party, is a win for the T.E.A. Party/Anti-Establishment movement.

    Look out Mikey C.
