Right Wing RulesJuly 21st, 2009 at 9:47 pm by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
Republican Scott Schneider’s election tonight to replace Teresa Lubbers in the seat she vacated in the state Senate is a victory for the far right.
He joins a growing list of right wingers to replace moderate Republicans in the state Senate in recent years. Mike Delph took over for Murray Clark, Greg Walker took over for Bob Garton, Brent Waltz replaced Larry Borst… you get the idea.
The Republicans hold a 33-to-17 majority in the Senate and will lose it, in all likliehood, only if they become too extreme. They are headed that direction.
