Faded tea party luminaries continue to line up behind candidates in the crowded Republican field itching to take on U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr.
The latest is former Senate candidate from Nevada, Sharron Angle, who threw her weight behind Bucks County veterans’ advocate David Christian in a letter sent to Pennsylvania conservative activists this week.
The tea party darling, who won Republican nomination in her state in 2010 only to lose in the general election to House Majority Leader Harry Reid, called Christian “instrumental” in protecting veterans’ rights. She also took aim at Gov. Corbett and Pennsylvania’s Republican establishment for their “strong-arm tactics” in endorsing Malvern businessman Steve Welch at the party’s endorsement meeting earlier this year..
“Frankly, the actions of Gov. Corbett and the PA GOP State Committee are indecent and immoral and a major reason why Obama could win,” she wrote.
