Club for Growth president Pat Toomey writes about Rhode Island’s GOP primary in the race for the Senate seat held by Lincoln Chafee in today’s OpinionJournal.
I am supporting Steve Laffey in this race, although I supported Arlen Specter in the race against Mr. Toomey in 2004. Unlike Senator Specter, Senator Chafee is never with the GOP on crucial votes, refusing to vote to authorize the war in Iraq, refusing to vote for President Bush’s reelection, and most recently providing the only Republican vote on November 15 of this year for Senator Levin’s “timetable” amendment that would have instructed the president to set a date for leaving Iraq.
Lincoln Chaffee gets all the big ones wrong. He should be retired.
