    This sounds like a good thing for the Dems. I mean the only states pushing ALEC bills are controlled by the GOP. In those states the state government could add a candidate to the ballot if the "wrong" person wins the primary.

    Now they aren't going to add a Dem, they are going to add a partyline GOP member to balance the crazy that is the Tea party candidate (in theory) or vice versa if the Tea Party controls the government.

    That will simply split the GOP vote and the dem would reap the rewards.

    Am I missing something here?

    Voting straight party D 'til there's no GOP...
    Oh and the name is Jim, not Tim, the user name is a typo
