GOP Refuses To Endorse Schlesinger

President Bush became the most prominent Republican to decline comment on the Connecticut general election.

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said this morning that President Bush will not endorse Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate Alan Schlesinger (R) over Sen. Joe Lieberman even though he's the Republican nominee.

Earlier in the week, Ken Mehlman, chairman of the RNC, appeared on MSNBC's Hardball and refused to tell Chris Matthews who he supported in the Conecticut Senate race. He reiterated the point that it was up to Connecticut voters to choose their senator. Ironically, he was in Ohio at the time of the interview, campaigning for Republican Senator Mike DeWine.

If what happened in the Democratic primary was an insurgency, what is happening in the Republican Party is a jihad, says Intoxination.
