Party Before Principle

Rep. Jeb Hensarling has just announced that he is backing the liberal, Kos-endorsed Republican Dede Scozzafava in a special election for a New York congressional seat, over the Conservative Party nominee. Hensarling says, “I am supporting Dede Scozzafava in her campaign for Congress. I am backing the only Republican in this race who can win and don’t want to lose this seat to Nancy Pelosi for a generation” (emphasis added).
