Dump Chafee: Laffey for Senate

Posted by Adam Graham on January 30, 2006

I rarely concern myself with Congressional races outside of Idaho, but I’m making an exception in wading into the Rhode Island Senate Race.

For more than 30 years, the Republican Party has put up with the liberal shenanigans of the Chaffee family, more in tune with the Democratic Party than the Republican. However, in recent years, Senator Lincoln Chafee (R-RI) has taken this disloyalty too far.

In the year 2004, Chafee failed to support the re-election of George W. Bush as President of the United States, instead opting to write-in the President’s father. Chafee has joined the Michael Moore wing of the Democratic Party in attacking our War effort. Now, Chafee has joined the Democratic Caucus in voting to reject the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Enough is enough.

Thankfully, in this time of fiscal irresponsibility, Rhode Island has a candidate for the US Senate, a man of principle dedicated to reforming our out of control pork-barrel politics, a man who would support the confirmation of Judges like Samuel Alito.

Mayor Steve Laffey knows what fiscal restraint all about. The Mayor helped save the town of Cranston, Rhode Island from bankruptcy. If elected to the Senate, Mayor Laffey will be part of the solution to our nation’s ills and will fight the out of control fleecing of America’s taxpayers.

Despite his qualifications, his conviction, and his dedication to bedrock Conservative principles, some of my Republican brethren will be afraid to support Laffey for fear of losing the general election.

First, the State has in recent years elected a pro-life Conservative Republican Governor, so the Mayor has a fair shot at victory.

Second, I remember the Republican Party standing behind another incumbent 6 years ago, providing him campaign funding and support as well as the chairmanship of the powerful Senate Labor Committee despite numerous betrayals of Republican values.

That Senator was Jim Jeffords (later to be known as Jumpin’ Jim.) Chafee constantly flirts with switching parties. He may make the switch someday, but when he does, lets make sure he’s not a United States Senator.

I urge all Rhode Island Conservatives to unite behind the election of Steve Laffey to the US Senate. Its time to elect a Real Republican, a man who understands and believes in our party’s great values.

    First off what you called a Town is a City and there is a big difference ! and if you lived here as I do you would not be a happy camper with Mayor Laffy !!! The way he balanced the books was to add a 5th tax payment to the year. On average most taxpayers had to shell up over $500.00. He gave them a whole 2 months to come up with the $$ When an elderly person asked the Mayor what if I can’t come up the money. He answer was I’m sure we will get good money for it in a tax sale. HE IS A JERK !!!!!! I can’t wait to get him out of my city, and by the way I was a former elected Republican party offical.
