Incumbent Death walk continues

We cannot play both sides of the fence and what is good for the goose is good for the gander. We cannot celebrate the loss of party turncoat Arlen Spector last week in Philadelphia and hide in the sand when it comes to Alabama. We were happy that a democrat had jumped ship due to the crazy antics of the party. We wished the best for him and hoped it was going to work out and any seat in congress that changes to GOP at the time was good news. Last year was long ago and more and more it looks like no one is going to be safe. We are talking about Alabama Republican U.S. Representative Parker Griffith, who we applauded when switched from the Democratic Party last year looks like he can join Spector on the unemployment line. The Tea party did him in as their guy congressional candidate Mo Brooks won with slightly more than 50 percent of the vote in a three-candidate field for the 5th District seat. Parker Griffith never saw it coming as this defeat in his district’s GOP primary is another blow to incumbents. Mo Brooks rode into the election as with a background as a member of the Madison County Commission in Huntsville. Brooks tagged Griffith as a “flip-flopper” rightfully so, and picked up tea party support. This Alabama fifth district traditionally has been Democratic, but has leaned Republican in recent years. The election will be GOP Mo Brooks versus Democrat Steve Raby.
