Alabama GOP Primary Result Is Blow For Tea Party

The establishment supported candidate for the House seat in a very conservative district defeated the Tea Party backed candidate in a bitter race.  The Tea Party candidate refused to concede the election and threatened to start up a new party.  This result may cheer up the GOP establishment which poured lots of money into the campaign but it cannot afford to alienate about 25% of its base which is very active in elections.
