But it’s liberal incumbent Hanna (Malkin might as well have named Tom Reed) and his D.C. backers who are the elitists out of touch not only with GOP voters, but also with mainstream Americans. — Michelle Malkin
What’s the difference between Tom Reed and Richard Hanna? Hanna faced a primary challenge; Reed didn’t. Otherwise, Reed and Hanna are political twins.
Conservatives would do well to stay home this November; here’s why:
- Tom Reed is a very liberal Republican. His Freedom Works score puts him closer to Nancy Pelosi than to many conservatives in Congress.
- Many conservatives favor term limits. Tom Reed will have served 2+ terms. He has accomplished nothing yet and likely never will.
- Two terms is enough time to become corrupt. Tom’s out of state support shows which special interests he serves.
- If Tom becomes further entrenched in office, it will be many years before conservatives have a chance to vote for a candidate they like.
How did Tom Reed get the Conservative Party nomination? Is he really the candidate conservatives wanted? When will that cozy relationship end?
