Will Big Money Save a Divided Republican Party?

Hosted by

In Alaska, Utah, Nevada and now New Hampshire, Tea Party-backed candidates for the US Senate have defeated party stalwarts in this year's Republican primaries.  But the poster child may be Christine O'Donnell. The right-winger, who's made an issue of masturbation, defeated former governor and incumbent Congressman Mike Castle this week in Delaware. Democrats may think the Republicans are shooting themselves in the foot, but veteran GOP operatives, including Karl Rove, are not lying down. We hear about massive, coordinated spending plans, backed by the very mainstream establishment Tea Partiers love to hate.
