As we approach the November elections we need to start contemplating our fight for control of GOP leadership posts. After all, what good is a Republican Majority if it is lead by governing class statists? Until recently most of the Senate leadership posts were held by non-conservatives. McConnel is Minority Leader, Kyle is Whip, Lamar Alexander is Conference Chairman, and Murkowski was Conference Vice Chair. Now that traitor Murkowski was forced out of her leadership position it is imperative that we replace her with a true conservative.
Roll Call is reporting welcome news that John Barrasso will run for Conference Vice Chairman. Barrasso is one of the few solid conservatives in the Senate and has the support of Tom Coburn for his leadership bid. This is a good start, but we need to move our few conservatives into higher positions of leadership if our control of congress is to mean anything.
