Schwarz: Republicans leaving the party

Lifelong members of the Grand Old Party are tearing up their Republican Party membership cards after feeling thrown to the curb by Tim Walberg and his "right-wing intimidators" who ousted Joe Schwarz from office.
That's Schwarz's own views in what the Detroit News calls "his first extensive interview since losing the Aug. 8 primary to Tim Walberg."
Schwarz continues to stop short of saying the only way to remedy the radicals is to form a centrist party for moderates and independents.
"We've created a situation, more and more, where centrist moderates who once identified with the Republican Party find themselves with no place to go. That will have national implications," Schwarz told The Detroit News for a story today.
Joe Wicks, Walberg's campaign manager, denied they ran a negative campaign.
"This election suggests that Republicans want Republicans representing them that reduce taxes and defend traditional values. That's what we ran on," Wicks told the Detroit News.

Schwarz, who has not ruled out running for elected office again, has been mum on his activities in Washington on his Legislative Journal since July 24.

Schwarz's blog has probably been "mum" because they have been on summer recess until this week.

Hey, crechter,

Don't forget that Walberg refused to endorse Joe Schwarz last time. Is he a sore loser? He actually endorsed the Constitution Party candidate rather than support his own party.

Walberg is simply unqualifed to be in Congress. He was one of the worst state legislators, frequently blowing off his legislative duties, such as the trip to Paris when Engler and his party needed him.

Walberg is truly a RINO because I don't see any of the GOP values in his campaign.

Schwarz is not a "sore loser" he is deeply concerned about his party and the direction and polarization of politics today.

Hey Matt, There's a difference between not endorsing somebody compared to undermining somebodies campaign like Schwarz is attempting to do. Tim Walberg never attempted to undermine Schwarz's campaign after that primary. All Schwarz talks about is social issues, hwoever Walberg ran on tax & budget issues...

hey, cretcher,

You need to check your facts. Walberg not only refused to endorse Schwarz in 2004, he was telling people to vote for the Constitution party candidate. Just because you'l like to believe different does not make it true.

Speaking of Walberg undermining other republican campaigns, I remember that he promised to get out of the 04 race if he did not get the Right to Life endorsement. Another lie. The guy just cannot keep his promises. You should do a little gut check and figure out if you can trust him to represent you in Washington.
