Rossi Won’t Accept Tea Partier’s Demands

Tea Party favorite Clint Didier said Friday he won’t endorse fellow Republican Dino Rossi in the Senate race against Patty Murray until Rossi agrees to take strong positions against abortion, taxes and government spending. Rossi’s campaign promptly replied that he won’t submit to “demands made by anyone, even people with whom he agrees.” Didier, who was endorsed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Rep. Ron Paul, said that while he dearly wants “to send Patty Murray home with her pink slip in her hand,” he couldn’t make a halfhearted endorsement of Rossi and still remain true to supporters who gave him 12.5 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s primary/Associated Press.

Question: Are you surprised that the Tea Party candidate for U.S. senator in Washington pulled only 12.5% of the vote, even with Sarah Palin’s endorsement?
