The Dems are still Bailing.
All the talk of a dead Tea Party, weakened Republican party, conservative sitting on their hands, etc... One only has to look as far as a finger-in-the-wind wielding Roy Schmidt. Schmidt, following the in-trade expectations of crushing defeat of legislators on the left has realigned his loyalties. Michigan GOP chair Bobby Schostak says:"
"Representative Roy Schmidt is the latest casualty of the Democratic Party's extreme agenda of politics ahead people, and I applaud Rep. Schmidt for choosing to put his convictions and constituents first by joining the Republican Party. Michigan's economic comeback has just begun and there is still a lot of work to be done. But, make no mistake, the parties could not be any different - Republicans continue to offer serious solutions to defend Michigan's turnaround while Democrats hope to return Michigan to the days of broken budgets, big deficits and failed policies that will derail Michigan's comeback."But conveniently, no conservative shelled out the $100 to file and primary him on the Republican side.
He will be facing Democrat Matt Mojzak for the 76th state house seat.
Been here before?
We shall see.

One thing that has not gone unnoticed by the grassroots Republicans and conservatives is that Saul Anuzis is the GOP guy who seems to be solely responding to the questions about the DeleGATE Change in Michigan.
Mike Cox, the CHAIR of the credentials committee isn't doing it. In fact, the former attorney general of Michigan has been pretty clear where he stands on the issue.
"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong. It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."And even more quotes are available essentially saying the same thing.
Mr Cox an attorney, also joined by Eric Doster, the Counsel for the Michigan GOP voted NO to changing the rules on Wednesday night, with regard to delegate assignment. Even Holly Hughes is reported as saying she disagrees with the rules change.
Those who voted FOR? Bobby Schostak, Sharon Wise, and Bill Runco all voting for the change appear to have more of a silence following them. The last of the "gang of four", Saul Anuzis is the most heard, and continues to defend it as if it is a matter of life and death. Its as if it is his baby. His creation. HIS work.
I believe it is.
In fact, one Tea Party leader I have spoken to says it is a "test case" for NPV. A way that Saul can see if reassigning delegates can be done through further "weighting" of population heavy counties like Oakland.
