Former Presidential candidate warns Teaparty activists not to form a third party and run candidates against the GOP. He points out that whenever a conservative has ran against the GOP most have lost in both parties. A senatorial candidate, Scott Ashjian, running against Nevada Senator Harry Reid is calling himself a Teaparty candidate.
Former and likely future GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney issued a warning to tea party activists in an interview with the conservative newsmax.com website.
His warning: don’t form a third party and run candidates in the general election. That would divide the Republican vote and keep the Democrats in power, he told newsmax.com.
“That would hand over the country to Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, and that would be very sad indeed,” Romney said.
