The Daily Caller reports that ’several GOP centrists are undecided about whether to donate to Sharron Angle, who told Senate Republicans on Tuesday that she represents a chance to get rid of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).’

Angle won the Republican Party’s nomination recently. She is a darling of the Tea Party, who calls for the replacement of Medicare and Social Security with “free-market alternatives.” She also ‘favors big cuts in federal spending and endorsed getting rid of the Department of Education and giving more control to state and local governments.’

Although these views are perfectly defensible – even authentically conservative – more moderate members of the GOP feel a little bit queasy about Angle. Sen. Scott Brown – yeah, that Massachusetts Republican who was only to represent his state in the U.S. Senate because the Tea Party supported him – for instance, has already said he “doesn’t plan to get involved in that race.”

Read the whole thing.
