This is the first book that explains the Tea Party’s successful “primary” campaign against Republicans in Name Only (RINOs). Grassroots Tea Party activists adopted this strategy in 2009 shortly after the movement emerged. The first successful campaign occurred in upstate New York where the Tea Party defeated Dede Scozzafava, a RINO running for congress in a Republican primary that only elected Republicans to office during the previous 100 years. Armed with success, they defeated “conservative” Utah Senator Bob Bennett an eighteen-year veteran and then proceeded to defeat the popular Republican (RINO) governor of Florida Charlie Crist and elected the virtually unknown Tea Party candidate, Marco Rubio. This placed all Republicans on notice that if they do not follow conservative fiscal policies, they could be “primaried.” The Tea Party’s goal is to take control of the Republican Party and return it to its original, fiscal conservatism.

About the Author:

Ronald T. Libby is professor of political science and public administration at University of North Florida. He is the author of The Criminalization of Medicine: America’s War on Doctors and Eco-Wars: Political Campaigns and Social Movements.

Review:

Professor Libby thoroughly analyzes the U.S. House race featuring New York State Representative Dede Scozzafava and U.S. Senate races featuring Mike Lee (Utah) and Marco Rubio (Florida). Through his skillful blending of polling results, newspaper accounts, and behind the scene politics, he is able to document the origin and the continued power flexed by the Tea Party. His provocative conclusion points towards sustained involvement of the Tea Party in American Politics. Only time will tell if his well-founded prediction comes true. (Sean M. Theriault, The University of Texas at Austin)

Libby’s book is not just a detailed account of the rise, ideology, and electoral success of the Tea Party that brings much-needed balance to mainstream media accounts, it also provides important insights into the continuing fight over the soul of the Republican Party. (Stan Veuger, American Enterprise Institute)
