I am now in touch with National Journal reporter Lindsey Boerma, who noted:
While the Washington GOP establishment is reportedly courting Ayotte as the “younger, dynamic female senator” emblematic of their new moderate façade, she's apparently seeking the tea party's seal of approval.
"We only get into races when we are asked,” said FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon, indicating that Ayotte sought out the group's support. Brandon said FreedomWorks made the endorsement only after gaining "consensus from our guys on the ground -- we can’t endorse if our activists’ membership is spilt."
I don't know if the Tea Party's official stance is to trounce any adverse media it can, perhaps Kelly is leading the way on that, read yesterday's post (with related video) on the GOP/Tea Party run-and-hide removal of my Civil Rights Free Press lawsuit and watch all Kelly Ayotte/GOP videos at YouTube KingCast65.
