Family Research Council PAC: We Would Support A Primary Against Olympia Snowe
I just spoke to Connie Mackey, president of the Family Research Council Action PAC, and she told me that if a conservative candidate were to emerge to run against Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) in the 2012 Republican primary, FRC Action will back them.
"Well of course there is an audience that would love to see Olympia Snowe out of office, within the ranks of social conservatives, that's for certain," said Mackey.
A new survey from Public Policy Polling (D) found that a generic conservative challenger would lead the moderate Snowe in a Republican primary by a whopping 59%-31% margin.
On of two things would happen;
Snowe would run as an independent and win easily.
A democrat like Tom Allen (or god forbid someone like Ethan Strimling) who is far to the left of Snowe would win.
Either way, the GOP would lose the seat.

The dems were just as stupid to do the same thing to Lieberman.
