New blog — Not One Red Cent — calls for NRSC boycott over Charlie Crist endorsement

in Statewide by

This is a great example of the power of the blogosphere giving an outlet to someone whose voice would have likely gone unheard from. From Not One Red Cent, a new anti-Charlie Crist, anti-NRSC blog:

On May 12, 2009, The National Republican Senatorial Committee betrayed its mission, betrayed Republican voters, and betrayed the Reagan legacy.

The NRSC sided with an establishment candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in a Senate primary against young conservative leader, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.

Republicans across the country were outraged by this action, which is only the latest betrayal of grassroots conservatives by the out-of-touch GOP elite in Washington.

The word went forth among conservative activists: Do not give money to the NRSC. The current chairman, Sen. John Cornyn, must resign. His replacement must pledge to keep the committee neutral in contested primaries. Let Republican voters — not party elites — choose Republican candidates.
