Hooray for Eber Phelps.
His refusal to attend a tea party rally was, I am sure, intentional on his part. His presence at their so-called political gathering merely would have added legitimacy to their efforts. I am a moderate Republican, and I have watched Eber Phelps as he has performed in Topeka since his first election.
He was at the outset and continues to be an outstanding legislator in Topeka.
I am sure that the good people of Ellis County will return him again.
I am a lifelong moderate Republican. Mitt Romney's efforts to appease both the moderate wing of the party and the hard-right members of the Republican party will result in his defeat. If the Republican Party continues aa they have in the past, it will sound the death knell of the Grand Old Party.
