    Several Republican primaries Tuesday serve as the latest test for a party establishment that has seen many of its chosen candidates overtaken by tea-party activists looking for a renewed commitment to conservative principles.

    Insurgent Republicans are drawing enthusiastic support from conservatives in Delaware and New York, but establishment party leaders and even some tea party activists worry those candidates could damage Republican chances in November in traditionally liberal states. And in New Hampshire, polls show the gap closing between the establishment front-runner for U.S. Senate, Kelly Ayotte, and a tea party-embracing challenger, Ovide Lamontagne.

    A new Delaware survey released Monday showed tea party-backed Christine O'Donnell in a statistical tie with Rep. Mike Castle in the GOP Senate primary.

    Mr. Castle, a former governor, has been widely considered the front-runner to win the seat once held by Vice President Joe Biden. A win in Delaware would give the GOP a crucial pickup in its quest to gain a majority in the chamber.

    But Mr. Castle has drawn the ire of conservatives for supporting abortion rights and siding with Democrats on a cap-and-trade energy plan. The nonpartisan National Journal rated his voting record last year as the most liberal among House Republicans.
    Some people just don't get it. It is not enough that we win the seat, the person sitting in that seat has to vote the way we need for them to otherwise it's just another Democrat sitting there.

    Wrong, Mike Castle promised to caucus with the republican party which means that if we were to win the senate, we could then set the agenda.

    Promises are just words....................actions speak louder. He would have promised anything to remain in his seat.

    He may have promised it but he supports cap and tax, he supports obamacare, he is anti-gun, he is anti-life for the unborn, he voted to allow investigation into whether Bush should have been impeached. He is aliberal through and through and the GOP does not need them.
