GOP Senate candidate bolts to Libertarians

Dave Redick, former Republican candidate for US Senate, has announced he will run as a Libertarian this fall. In his statement, he cited how far removed the Republican party has become from its principles.

"The Republican Party nationwide is ‘off course’ compared to it’s traditional values, and Republican leaders at the State, and County level seem to like it that way (or at least will settle to be submissive and abused ‘loyalists’ to DC). The far-right religious groups, corrupt Congressmen, and warmonger ‘neocons’ have taken over in DC, and it seems no one is willing or able to push them back. It is now the war, big-spending, and homeland spy party."

Redick isn't going to win in fall, but I'm sure there will be more than a few disgruntled Republicans who will express their protest against the GOP by voting for him and other Libertarians in the election.

Scott, this has less importance than if Ben Masel made the jump to the Green Party.

Oh I'm not saying Redick is going to have a major impact on the race. Then again, it looks like the Republican candidate won't either.

No, you're right. Doyle is defeating himself without any help.
