Will “John Doe” tactics against Scott Walker backfire?

Will conservatives and Tea Party miss a golden opportunity in #NY22?

Posted by  ▪  June 22, 2014

Conservative and Tea Party candidate Claudia Tenney has a chance to defeat the third most liberal Republican congressman, but she’ll have to do it on her own.

One week ago tonight, Legal Insurrection brought national attention to a Tea Party, Marine mother running for Congress in upstate New York. Claudia Tenney has been battling a million dollar avalanche of “false flag” Super PAC ads that deceptively portrayed Tenney as the more liberal candidate, and incumbent Richard Hanna as more conservative….

Posted by  ▪  June 22, 2014

Warren finds refuge in the present tense, as Hillary’s weaknesses are exposed by her disastrous book rollout.
