Tea Party Nationwide Campaign Against IL Mark Kirk

Liberal GOP candidate for Obama's former U.S. Senate seat, Mark Kirk, has long been targeted by Illinois tea parties, but now is also being targeted by Tea Party Nation, sponsor of next month's convention headlined by Sarah Palin.

-- From "Tea Party Uses (Republican) Scott Brown's Victory To Target (Republican) Mark Kirk" by Christina Bellantoni, TPM Media 1/20/10

Tea Party Nation members spent less than an hour celebrating Republican Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts before they got to work to end another Republican's Senate candidacy.

. . . the "next battle" is in Illinois to make sure Rep. Mark Kirk does not win the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.

The primary is Feb. 2 and the Tea Party Nation warns that if Kirk (R-IL) wins, "this fall Illinois will have a choice between two liberals for the Illinois Senate seat." They call Kirk a "RINO," which stands for Republican In Name Only, with a "consistently liberal" record compared to Pat Hughes, who they called a "solid Conservative."

[From] the Tea Party Nation email . . .

Mark Kirk is one of 8 Republican Congressmen who voted for Cap & Trade. His voting record is consistently liberal. Illinois voters do have a choice on February 2.

Pat Hughes is a solid Conservative who is running for the Republican Nomination.

Now that Scott Brown has won, consider donating your time and money to support Pat Hughes' campaign.
