There are some ugly politics going on in Delaware ahead of tomorrow's Republican Senate primary, and it looks like they just got uglier. Delaware GOP chairman Tom Ross was reportedly threatened with a "bullet in the head" for backing moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle. The Huffington Post's Sam Stein reports:
The chairman of the Delaware Republican Party received a death threat last week over his support for Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del) over Tea Party challenger Christine O'Donnell in the state's upcoming Senate primary, a party official confirmed to the Huffington Post.The threat, issued in the form of an email, told chairman Tom Ross that he deserves "a bullet in the head" for backing "political ass-kissing RINO's" [Republicans in name only]."It is one thing to have your country screwed over by socialists, it is far worse to be backstabbed by people pretending to be your friends," the email read. "We will either rid the GOP of pieces of shit like you, or we will start a new 'Common Sense Conservative' party and render you all useless."
