Bloggers to NRSC: Drop Dead
John Hawkins of Right Wing News has gotten a number of A- and B-list conservative bloggers to co-sign an open letter to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a reaction to last week’s endorsement by the group of Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.) in the Florida U.S. Senate race.
We the undersigned believe that the National Republican Senatorial Committee should be committed to serving ALL the members of the Republican Party.
Additionally, the NRSC should be focused on defeating Democrats, not Republicans. Towards that end, we believe it was completely inappropriate for the NRSC to endorse a candidate in the Florida primary race.
Therefore, we request that both you and the NRSC alter your position on the Florida Senate race, maintain neutrality, and promise to spend no money directly or indirectly in that race.
Among the signatories: Tea Party leader Eric Odom, controversial “anti-jihadist” blogger Pamela Geller, frequent Blogginghead and TV pundit Matt Lewis, and RedState’s Erick Erickson, who has been blistering in his criticism of Republican moderates.
