Rovian Walberg ousts Moderate Schwarz for Mich. US Rep. - because "Bipartisanship is date-rape"
Now that these primaries are done, Democrats better learn that the Rove/Norquist cabal within the GOP will never surrender nor negotiate. It must be crushed.
Walberg, who served for 16 years in the state House and is an ordained minister, became the first Michigan congressional challenger to beat an incumbent...since ...1992.... Although Schwarz had the backing of most of the others who ran in 2004, Walberg was endorsed by a bevy of influential conservative groups that bashed the incumbent.
Walberg's endorsements came from Right to Life of Michigan and influential antitax groups, and he received massive support from the Washington, D.C.-based Club For Growth. Club For Growth, backed by wealthy businesspeople who oppose much government spending and taxation, made Schwarz its primary target for replacement in the U.S. House this year. More than $3 million was spent overall in the campaign.
