Jamie Radtke, a tea party activist preparing to run for Senate in Virginia, was an invited guest at Thursday’s inaugural meeting of the Senate Tea Party Caucus, and she said afterward that she intends to draw on national support in a GOP primary contest that pits her against former Sen. George Allen.

Radtke is not the only Virginia Republican gearing up for the Senate primary and looking to challenge Allen from the right. But she was the only one to join GOP Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Mike Lee (Utah) and Rand Paul (Ky.) this week for the launch of the Senate Tea Party Caucus.

    George was pretty fair Gov. during his 4 years, as was Mark Warner(D-Va.) Then we elevated them to the U.S.Senate and it became all about party line and party talking points. Virginia and the Nation were put on the back burner, and party loyalty came to the forefront. As for me and mine, we support Jamie Radtke. Hopefully whatever is in the senates water, she will be immune to! In all things, AMERICA FIRST, never party first.

    If the story is about Radke, you should feature a picture of Radke, not George Allen.

      Make that Radtke, not Radke.

    A friend of DeMint, Paul, and Lee is a friend of mine. From what I’ve read about George Allen, he’s a wishy washy politician type. We need principled individuals now more than ever. Let’s get get this lady in the senate.

    Being the son of a former Redskins coach is not good credentials for representing Virginia in the Senate. A good old boy is a good old boy, no matter what he says. I will lend my support to Jamie any day.

    Time to take down the RINOs again. I will note her name for a possible small donation.
