Letter:Richard Tisei is no John McCain

(Continued)

Tisei continues to accept the Tea Party funding and while Tisei insists his social views prevent any Tea Party alignment, let’s be clear; the outside money is not coming into his campaign because the Tea Party wants Tisei to champion same-sex marriage in Alabama and Texas. The Tea Party money is coming in because at the top of Tisei’s agenda is his promise, to “work for the repeal of Obamacare.” The Tea Party money is coming in because John Tierney is a tough advocate for the middle class and woman’s rights and the Tea Party wants him out.

Tisei has a debt to the Tea Party and he will not stand up to them and actively champion same-sex marriage or challenge their position on reproductive rights for women. There is only one candidate who will do so and it is John Tierney.

Richard Tisei is not a champion and he is no John McCain.
