Byrne beats Tea Party candidate in Alabama.

Terrible news.

Republican Bradley Byrne defeated his insurgent conservative opponent in an Alabama House race Tuesday, notching a hard-fought victory for the business wing of the GOP.

With more than 90 percent of votes tallied, the Associated Press called the race for Byrne over Dean Young, a Christian conservative aligned with the tea party. Byrne led Young 53 percent to 47 percent.



I don’t know why The Washington Post calls Young an “insurgent,” the term they use for terrorists in Iraq.

Byrne often cast himself as a “work horse” in an effort to contrast himself with Young, who he characterized as a “show horse.”

And who is he working for? Alabamians or the illegal aliens the Chamber of Commerce wants to employ?

These “pro-business” pastel Republicans will be the death of us.
