CHILDREN'S HOUR IS OVER:
Tuesday's takeaways: GOP establishment prevails (JAMES HOHMANN | 5/6/14, Politico)
GOP groups won out Tuesday night."We engaged early and worked closely with other center-right groups to help Tillis overcome a late dirty-tricks campaign orchestrated by Hagan and national Democrats," American Crossroads President and CEO Steven Law said in a statement. "It was clear from the start that Thom Tillis is the only proven conservative who can defeat Kay Hagan and take on President Obama's liberal agenda."The North Carolina results are a strong indication that the GOP rank and file is undergoing a shift from prioritizing purity to prizing victory. Just like D.C. strategists, voters watched Akin and Richard Mourdock blow it in 2012 and didn't want a repeat this year.
