Not One Red Cent:
The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You!

The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s attempt to lock up a Senate seat for Obama’s favorite Republican, Charlie Crist, is naturally causing trouble in the Florida GOP. But the guy who is actually responsible for the NRSC’s “pay up and shut up” policy is Texas Sen. John Cornyn. This raises question for Texas Republicans:

Remember the fight over the stimulus bill? Remember the key vote where Cornyn had a “prior committment” with wealthy donors in New York City? That caused Mike Wellman to remark: “I am from Texas. I was already angry at Cornyn’s vote on the Treasury Secretary. I will not vote for him again.”
Now as NRSC chairman, Cornyn supports Charlie Crist in Florida, putting the knife in Marco Rubio’s back. . . .
Does Texas GOP chairwoman Tina Benkiser (512-477-9821 ) approve? What about Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry (512-478-3276)? Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (214-361-3500)? Texas RNC members Bill Crocker (512-478-5611) and Cathie Adams (972-523-8551)?
One would think that Texas Republicans might want to ascertain, with all the charm and courtesy for which Texans are famous, whether the Lone Star state’s GOP officials support Cornyn’s decision to have the NRSC decide the Florida Senate primary in favor of Charlie Crist.
