RINO Alert: 100 Kansas Republicans Endorse Dem Running Againt Conservative Gov. Sam Brownback
So-called “moderate” Republicans exist for only one reason: to help Democrats get into office. Case in point: 100 Kansas RINOs have come out to endorse the Democrat challenger, Paul Davis, over conservative Governor Sam Brownback.
Some 100 moderate Republicans have turned against Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and endorsed his Democratic challenger Paul Davis, Politico reported.
Old-school moderate Republicans have lost their place in the GOP-controlled Kansas legislature. They blame Brownback, who is a fiscal and social conservative.
… Steve Morris is one of the Republicans who have turned against Brownback. The ex-legislator lost his office in a primary challenge financed by Americans for Prosperity, which is supported by the Koch brothers.
Another is Dick Bond, former president of the Kansas Senate. “It’s a big step for every one of us,” he says “and a major departure from our Republican roots,” Politico reported.
In the endorsement posted on the Davis campaign website former GOP lawmaker Wint Winter said: “All of us are proud Republicans. We came together because of our common love of Kansas, our commitment to Kansas families, and our belief in moderate, commonsense leadership.”
Winter added, “We are deeply concerned by the direction Sam Brownback is taking Kansas. Today we announce our opposition to his re-election. And to pledge our voices, our energy and our votes to Paul Davis.”
Somehow, in their teeny-tiny RINO minds, getting a liberal Democrat into office is better than having another Republican. And hey, it makes sense — the media is far more likely to give you a verbal tongue-bath if you’re a RINO than if you stick to your principles, and come on… principles are hard in the face of fawning media coverage.
