Carly Fiorina to be Tea-Bagged?

Some influential right-wing Republicans are hoping to block California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina from winning their party’s primary because she’s too moderate. According to Talking Points Memo, US Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, a force in the conservative Tea-Bag movement, is backing California Assemblyman Chuck DeVore over Fiorina. DeMint was instrumental in the recent purging of a moderate Republican in an upstate New York congressional campaign. He and other conservatives backed a right-winger in that race, but their choice proved costly and paved the way for a Democratic victory.
