There’s certainly a group of folks—some tea party leaders and others, David Adams for example—who are trying to find a candidate who can take him on. And everyday that candidate’s not in the race it becomes that much harder of a proposition," he says.<p> Tue, 11 Jun 2013 21:11:57 +0000 Phillip M. Bailey 31962 at http://wkms.org
