You did not but the BLAZE post did. What the Blaze did not tell you is that Wagner could not get his own Republican party to back him for a bid for the State Senate so he went rogue as a Tea Republican write in, spent a shit of load of money in buying it, opps, in wining a term good for only a few months. He still has to win a republican primary in may to be on the Nov. ballot as a Republican for that seat.<quoted text>
Did I mention Wagner was a WRITE-IN TEA PARTY candidate? Not Republican, Tea Party though most, if not all, Tea Party candidates register under the Republican party. How did results like those in this election happen if the Tea Party is SO crazy and radical? Maybe America is moving in a new "radical" direction. If this election is any indication, I welcome the change.
Bottom line, a rich Republican bought himself a temporary seat to the State Senate in Pa. because the majority of the minute turn out were Tea Party faithful in a special election.
BOTTOM LINE, Mr. Wagner's chance of success in a general election would be greatly reduced compared to this special election, that he made the most expensive in the countys history for a Senate seat.
Just that simple, but spin as you wish.
