Last Tuesday, the Tea Party may have elected Jack Conway as the new senator from Kentucky.
Republicans should always vote for the most conservative candidate that can WIN. The Tea Partiers in their zealousness may have forgotten this cardinal rule.
Paul may well have been the best candidate to represent the Tea Party's views, but he was not the best to represent their interests.
He may make a great senator, but if he doesn't win the general, that doesn't much matter. Clearly, Grayson was the stronger candidate for a general election.
Hopefully, Paul can win the general election, but if he doesn't, it will be the Tea Party that elected Conway.
