Two Tech Chiefs Triumph in California – Jim Carlton, Stu Woo and Cari Tuna, The Wall Street Journal
Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman won the GOP primaries for senate and governor in California last night. I’m sure that not many California voters took even five minutes to read about Ms. Fiorina’s record at Hewlett Packard or Lucent. If they had, there is no way she would have won. I expect a major pivot to the left from both Fiorina and Whitman to win the general election. – Dick Young
GOP incumbents in New Jersey Beat Back Tea-Party Challenges – Devlin Barret, The Wall Street Journal
Tea Partiers couldn’t break the incumbents in New Jersey’s GOP primaries, but their campaigns surely brought up ideas that would have been pushed under the rug had they not run at all. It is possible the lasting impression of the Tea Party will be its pressure on the GOP to be honestly conservative, rather than simply paying lip service to conservative principles. – Timothy Jones
Switch-22 – Larry Thornberry, American Spectator
Mr. Thornberry highlights something many conservative Floridians like me already know, Charlie Crist is a flip-flopping pseudo-liberal who has no real principles and adjusts his stance on issues to take advantage of the prevailing political winds whenever possible. He should do Florida a favor and simply drop out of the race for senate. – Dick Young
