Three Cheers for Bob Beers!

Conservative former state Sen. Bob Beers is now Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers after blowing out “Chicken” Ric Truesdell and his hapless Obama Whisperer son-in-law in a special election on Tuesday, 37-22%.

Beers, by the way, is a solid fiscal conservative; a libertarian even. And he went up against a well-financed/deep-pocketed opponent who tried to smear Beers as a rightwing “partisan hack” and who had the full backing of the mayor and former mayor of the City of Las Vegas. Yet…he won. In a landslide.

So don’t let anyone tell you Republicans have to run “moderate” candidates to win. It…just…ain’t…so.
