Tea Party progress

By Ken Feltman

A week after Tea Party candidate Rand Paul won the Republican Senate primary in Kentucky, Idaho State Rep. Raul Labrador won a House primary over a favored organization-backed Republican. Labrador had the backing of Tea Party enthusiasts.

Nevada may yield the next Tea Party winner (June 8). Former Nevada Assemblywoman Sharron Angle has Tea Party support in her bid to overtake the establishment candidate in the U.S. Senate GOP primary.

In state after state, as Republican officials brush off Tea Partiers, the movement is fielding and supporting challengers.
