Terry Being Squeezed From the Right?
There is an article in today's Congressional Quarterly, "Squeeze From the Right For House Republicans" which discusses some Republican congressmen that are being challenged by folks apparently ebbing from the 'tea party' movement. It casually mentions Congressman Lee Terry as one of those who may be affected by same, in this case Matt Sakolousky who is challenging Terry in the primary. While Matt may have some support from the 'tea party' folks the bottom line is that he can only be an irritant that Terry will have to deal with as he faces a State Senator Tom White next year in the general election.
While Terry may show some of the voting history with the main subject of the article, the conservative right in the Second Congressional District isn't about to abandon him.
