Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour wrote an op-ed in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal urging Republicans to get behind the party’s primary winners – be they traditional Republicans or Christine O’Donnells.
“When the Republican voters of a state choose a party nominee in an open process like a primary, we Republican leaders must support the nominee. During my tenures as chairman of the RNC and RGA, neither organization endorsed candidates in primaries. That’s because the party’s role is to abide by the decisions of the Republican primary voters. We have no right whatsoever to substitute our will or judgment for that of the voters.”
