GOP Senate Targets Keep Their Distance From Ryan

May 26, 2011
"I think that says a lot about how they know how potent this policy is. They have to respond to their own voters," said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, at a briefing with reporters on Thursday. Most major Republican Senate candidates who are in Congress have avoided taking clear positions on Ryan's entitlement reform. A spokesperson for former-Sen. George Allen, R-Va., would not say whether he would vote for the Ryan budget proposal, while In New Mexico, the campaign of former Rep. Heather Wilson did not comment when asked by Hotline On Call where she stood. Wilson's main GOP opponent, Lt. Gov. John Sanchez, when pressed in an interview Tuesday over whether he would vote for the measure, declined to commit to a yes or no vote. In Florida, former Sen. George LeMieux and state Senate President Mike Haridopolos would not say they would vote for the measure, even though they had positive things to say about the plan. Rehberg explained his April "no" vote by saying that the measure was "rushed through." But there have been some exceptions. In contrast to his Florida Senate primary opponents, former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner vocally supported the plan. In Texas, former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, viewed by some observers as more moderate than some other candidates in the GOP field and trying to shore up his conservative credentials, also said he would vote for it. And Heller voted for the measure in the House last month, and voted for it again Wednesday in the Senate.
