When the Tea Party Express last week endorsed Idaho Rep. Walt Minnick — the only Democrat to receive the backing of the conservative grassroots group — one of his Republican challengers said he was simply baffled .
Sal Russo, a strategist with Tea Party Express, said the group did reach out to a number of groups and activists, many of whom support Minnick. Democrats who “are willing to stand up to Pelosi and Reid” should get support from Tea Party organizations “to encourage others” to act similarly, he said.
“When you find someone willing to stand up, you got to stand up with him,” Russo said.
The strategist said he wouldn’t be surprised to see the group add another Democrat or two to the list. “It can’t be a one-party issue. Fiscal responsibility has to be embedded in both parties,” he said.

Should Minnick be considered a DINO?
Only if that means he's a fiscal conservative!!!

Good Question gdiamante. I think his selection demonstrates the importance of choosing politicians who posess the greatest fiscal discipline. I don't think he is a DINO... He voted for Pelosi. I am sure, given the chance, he would d it again... But he isn't afraid of her and has displayed more fiscal constraint than his Republicans challenger (according to the article I read) ;o)

What's funny is the progressives have taken the democrat party away from the liberals and most of them on here don't even realise it.
