The schism in the Montana GOP has been well covered over the last two sessions. It’s a battle between the sane wing of the Republican Party and the TEA Party wing of the GOP.
Yesterday, 11 sane and responsible Republican Representatives had the brains and courage to help get Medicaid expansion to the floor for a debate and vote. Now the establishment is running ads against their own party members (see the screen shot below).
I wonder if Chris Shipp, Executive Director of the Montana GOP will be getting any angry calls from the Representatives and Senators he’s supposed to be working for? Democrats are jumping for joy at the site of the GOP eating their own – that should be enough for the GOP establishment to check itself… you’d think.
