The Republican Party has found yet another way to show that it trusts its own voters: when in doubt, push challengers to the insiders' favored candidates aside. In North Carolina, the party elite support the Senate campaign of longtime Kansas resident Elizabeth Dole. At a party fundraiser in March, they publicized Dole's speech and forbade Republican rivals Ada Fisher and Jim Snyder from speaking.
In Massachusetts, Republican party officials forced Acting Governor Jane Swift to disband her campaign for a full term, and even forced her running mate, Patrick Guerriero, to step down as well.
