Coburn singled out negative ads by Senate Conservatives Fund and Oklahomans for a Conservative Future aimed at boosting the candidacy of tea party darling T.W. Shannon, the former state House speaker who’s drawn the support of national conservatives like Sarah Palin and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah).
In a recent interview Coburn was careful not to name Cruz and Lee — but slammed people for not doing their “due diligence” before endorsing a candidate. In a joint letter on Thursday, Palin, Lee and Cruz wrote a letter boosting Shannon’s candidacy and bashing Lankford’s “backing of the Washington establishment,” a reference to his service in House leadership.
Another guy I won’t miss. Especially if we can replace him with an actual conservative.
