Self-Evident

Were my money and resources at stake, no current House GOP member better embodies the party’s leadership rot than he: his incessantly measured, strategically incoherent tacking reveals a party now guided by advisor-class tutelage, not conservatism. Additionally, his status as party-protected and groomed future speaker establishes the taking of his seat as a viable means for delivering a message to leadership.

Eric Cantor has earned his primary challenge, and I would suggest to national donors that Dave Brat is the predictably conservative challenger worthy of your interest. And with Cantor’s favorables low and VA-7 possessing a conservative soul, Cantor’s incumbency doesn’t present the imposing challenge the party might otherwise assume of it.

The tenancies of Cantor and other “establishment” Republicans deserve sunlight. I intend to provide some here at Self-Evident over the following weeks with this “Moderate Danger” series. I expect these postings will expose the situation in a manner not generally considered during the typical “RINO” vs. conservative debate, at least in terms of winning:

Always, we argue of which strain of Republican is more palatable on Election Day. Instead, we should first be discussing and exposing — from local sheriff races to presidential primaries — just how many roadblocks the GOP lays down in the path of viable conservative candidates.

First, let us know which seats you think deserve attention. I’m currently focused on Cantor and Renee Ellmers, but I’d like to hear your thoughts.

Groups in Ohio have begun coalescing around J.D. Winteregg to replace Boehner in Ohio's 8th district. http://www.jdwinteregg.com/

I'd primary Boehner and let Cantor be. If you try to shoot everybody you are going to hit nobody and if you demand perfection you're just going to end up with Democrats.

Primary them all.

All of them. Every single one. Give no one a pass.

Even primary the Tea Party candidates who got into office and then turned RINO. Like Ellmers.

Primary all of them. Every time.

Didn't Boehner force out conservatives from leadership positions in the House? Presumably all current chairmen are to the liking of the GOP establishment. Primary challenge all of them.

Cantor is a good place to start. His removal would send a loud message to the rest of the Establishment RINO class. Ellmers is another good pick. I really wish we could take Bonehead Boehner down. McCarthy needs to be challenged as well. Matt Bevin needs our support in taking down Mushmouth McConnell. If the Establishment RINO class put the energy into halting Obama's Marxist agenda that they put into fighting Conservatives our country wouldn't be in as bad a fix as it is in now. We need a new Republican party. It's too bad we didn't have a credible candidate against Cornyn in Texas.

I like Peter Greenwald against Cantor, only one I've heard of.

I like Erika Harold for Illnois 13, for which results are coming in right now.

Getting rid of Boehner would be great too. Entire "leadership" needs to be gone.

We know the Cantor sings but does the Brat scream? How much is known of this guy?

Every incumbent should be primary'd. The fact that way more than 90% of incumbents get re-elected is what has us in this mess thanks to the permanent political class.

I'm a bit surprised you didn't start with John McCain. He should have been sent home years ago.
