Tim Murphy not only has to cool his heels this week like everybody else, waiting to see what his new congressional district will look like, but he still has conservative challenger Evan Feinberg nipping at them.
Feinberg is on the homepage of the right-wing site Red State today previewing his planned GOP primary challenge against the Upper St. Clair Republican, and looking for campaign donations from readers. (The site's editor Erick Erickson has previously criticized Murphy.) From Feinberg's post:
There are a lot of reasons why Tim Murphy needs to be primaried, but it really boils down to this: Tim Murphy is an Arlen Specter Republican.
Arlen Specter was the epitome of selfish, career politicians who make a mockery of our political institutions while turning their backs on their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. They do not hesitate to throw taxpayer dollars at special interests that fund their campaigns. They won’t let political party get in the way of political survival. They make promises they know they cannot keep, hoping to bribe their constituents to vote for them. In each of these ways, Tim Murphy is Specter’s political successor.
