Tomorrow we may witness one of the great ironies of this primary season, as it now seems inevitable that the Tea Party will emerge victorious over the "Establishment" in Nebraska's Republican U.S. Senate primary. The irony is that in this race, it is the "Establishment" candidate, Shane Osborn, (not the Tea Party candidate, Ben Sasse) who is vowing to oppose amnesty and protect American workers.
Ben Sasse is supported by Tea Party leadership figures like Sarah Palin, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, but has resisted signing the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) no-amnesty pledge
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the Tea Party movement is a leaderless one. It is no longer clear what the Tea Party believes on some of the most important issues facing our country today (namely immigration). Perhaps it is time to leave the Tea Party brand behind in favor of a more populist movement focused on American workers. It is time for Tea Party leadership to stop simply being "anti-Establishment," and to start being pro-America.
