Next up, Asselta endorses Brownback?

State Senator Nicholas Asselta has endorsed Sonny McCullough for State Senate in the second district against Frank Blee because he wants someone to join him as a conservative vote in the upper house. That didn’t sit well with one Republican elected official, who asked that his name be withheld in the interest of party unity:

“Let me get this straight: Asselta endorses a candidate on the grounds that he, Asselta, needs another conservative voice in the Senate? Does Asselta possess even so much as one conservative molecule in his body? I mean, Blee’s certainly no conservative, and virtually any real Republican would be an improvement. But Asselta is every bit as bad. Is there a tax increase he hasn’t supported, a boneheaded Democratic proposal against which he has led the charge? I guess, if you’re running for office, you take such support, even out of district, as you can muster. But I can’t imagine a single conservative who would give an Asselta endorsement the slightest credence.”
