No opposition from Republicans in today’s vote

Rep. Todd Tiahrt had no opposition in the primary race today. Every Republican knows he’s an excellent fund raiser and he just can’t be beat. He has those religious wing-nuts behind him and those churches are a mighty tool for getting re-elected. And all Republicans know by now (at least very few), that no one raises more funds in the house than Tiahrt. He’ll need all the money he can muster if the Democrats decide to take a serious shot at his seat. Most people in his district are completely sick of him, but his organization, zombie religious backing and wads of cash make him a difficult target.
