Conservative Wing Poses Threat to Senator Smith

Oregon Senator Gordon Smith, a moderate Republican on many issues, has already drawn opposition for his re-eletion in 2008. But now, it appears the far right will try to produce a challenger to him in the primary.
Once again, it appears the far right conservative group Club for Growth has not heeded the lessons of 2006. In a blue state such as Oregon, an ultra-conservative will certainly not win office, but will only cause the Party to lose the seat entirely. Smith is the only GOP Senator serving the West Coast and the only Republican serving Oregon at the federal level.
The far right needs to leave this race be or the GOP will become a permanent minority.
