Tag: MIGOP 2012 U. S. Senate Primary
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
So far as I'm aware, there are currently about 152 separate organizations (including umbrella groups with their franchises) comprising the Michigan Tea Party Patriot Network. I say, "so far as I'm aware," because I'm still doing some digging with regard to publicly-available information (there are at least four lists, and none of them are identical) for another research project; but the larger point that should not be lost is that the tea party movement in Michigan is without question a force to be reckoned with.
However, out in Colorado earlier this year, the then-chairman of the Colorado GOP, Dick Wadhams, seemed insistent on blaming the Colorado Tea Party Patriot Network for two major losses (governor and senate) in 2010 as he pulled his reelection bid for COGOP chair. Never mind that this cat's been on a losing streak since 2006, nor that the republicans picked up two congressional seats, one State Senate seat, and six state house seats, flipping the congressional delegation and the state H of R . . . nope, it had to be the tea party's fault. At the time, Mr. Wadhams didn't know what his next career move would be. On Mackinac Island last weekend, we found out where he landed.
