Nine Targets

This is a list of the nine Republican senators who voted FOR cloture on amnesty and are up for re-election next year:

Stevens (R-AK)
Dominici (R-NM)
Collins (R-ME)
Coleman (R-MN)
Craig (R-ID)
McConnell (R-KY)
Hagel (R-NE)
Graham (R-SC)
Warner (R-VA)
EVERY SINGLE ONE of these individuals needs to face a solid primary challenger this next Spring.

It needs to be made clear to the party apparatus in each of the above states that these men are not likely to be returned to office in November 2008. Many of the GOP faithful will not be voting for these guys under any circumstances in the general. In fact, I have no doubt that at least some conservatives will be working for the opposition if these guys make it back to the general election. The party operatives in these senators' states need to start hearing this message right now. They need to start to understand that returning any of these men to the general ballot will equal a loss in November. If the party hopes to keep these seats in Republican hands, they would be well-advised to cut these men loose.
