Chris at Mason Conservative asks some very salient questions about why the GOP establishment is not behind Jim Gilmore's campaign for U.S. Senate. While electeds have called for unity among the (oftentimes) fractured grassroots, they do not set the example by being united themselves. They are distancing themselves from our senatorial candidate, and the excuse I most often hear is that Gov. Gilmore is pulling down the ticket.
Where is everyone to stand up for Jim Gilmore? To campaign with him? To help raise money for him? Where is the GOP establishment?
A Senator with "sharp elbows," as Mason Conservative puts it, is exactly who I want in the Senate representing conservatives against the libs. When someone can explain this one to me, I will be listening.
