Simpson Says "Right" Not Great For Republicans

Laramie, Wy – Former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson is concerned about how the push from the right seems to be impacting the Republican Party. Simpson says pushes from the left hurt Democrats in the 80's and he thinks the G-O-P should beware. He was disturbed about some of the criticism that former Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers had to face. "Republicans never do well when they give their own people the saliva test" said Simpson. Simpson says most of the country is middle of the road and he thinks the average person is starting to get fed up with what he is hearing from Washington.
