McConnell on End of Primary Season

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell sent this olive branch to the Tea Partiers today:

I would like to thank everyone who participated in Republican primary elections across the country. Whether you were a first-time voter, a lifelong Republican, or simply fed up with Washington and the direction of our country, your participation has made our party stronger and our mission clearer. As we unite in a common effort over the next seven weeks, Republicans will carry an optimistic vision for the future and a conservative alternative to the ‘government knows best’ approach of Washington Democrats.

“Turnout and enthusiasm are off the charts because Americans have had enough of a Congress and an administration who simply refuse to listen to Americans who are speaking out. Now that the primaries are over, the flood of enthusiasm is all pointed in the same direction with the same focus: creating a positive environment for job creation, stopping the damage caused by Washington over the past two years, slowing the growth of the federal government and reducing the debt and tax burdens on our families and job creators.”
