Kyl: "Bothered By Anything That Makes It Less Likely That We Can Elect a Republican"

Posted By on Mon, Sep 20, 2010 at 6:27 PM

The Hill reports that U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl appears unhappy that a Tea Party candidate won an election in Delaware and unhappy that U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski would continue to challenge a Tea Party candidate in Alaska:

Murkowski’s decision to mount a write-in campaign risks splitting the Republican vote between two candidates and could cost her party a safe GOP seat.

“I am bothered by anything that makes it less likely that we can elect a Republican, especially in a state where we had every hope of electing one,” Senate GOP Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said Monday.

“Both in Delaware and in Alaska now, it's less likely than it was just two weeks ago. And looking at how we might try to regain control of the Senate, that's the part that bothers me,” Kyl said.

It's a shame when those peasants you've stirred up get out of control and support someone like Christine O'Donnell, eh?
