    Amnesty Supporter, Another RINO, Spencer Bachus, Calls it Quits

    Another RINO, Spencer Bachus, Calls it Quits

    Well, we have another casualty of our aggressive primary challenge strategy. RINO Spencer Bachus, one of the few Republicans who supported amnesty from such a conservative district, has announced he will not seek reelection. This is another example of winning without firing a shot.

    What gives?

    Bachus knew that at least one or two legitimate challengers were planning to announce, and the polling was not looking favorable for him. We interviewed an impressive candidate several weeks ago, and have made a priority to replace Spencer Bachus. Alabama’s Sixth Congressional district is rated R+28, perhaps the most conservative district in the country. Yet Bachus was one of just a few Republicans to vote against defunding Obama’s illegal administrative amnesty. He has been a big spending supporter of bailouts for years. Today’s announcement is a victory for conservatives and a vindication of our strategy to move aggressively in primaries.

    Now that this is an open seat the dynamics of the race will change rapidly. We will monitor this race very closely to ensure that Republicans nominate a conservative who reflects the conservative values of this district.

    Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus won't seek re-election

    Alabama Rep. Spencer Bachus won't seek re-election

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Republican Rep. Spencer Bachus, the longest-serving member of Alabama's House delegation, said Monday he will not seek re-election in 2014 after his current term.

    The 6th District congressman, who first made the announcement during a live interview on WBRC-TV, said he is too worried about problems like the national debt to resign, yet he also is frustrated by the climate in Washington.

    "I am very concerned about this country," Bachus said in an interview with The Associated Press. "There's too much politics and not enough policy."

    Bachus, a former Alabama GOP chair who also served on the state school board, said he won't retire after his term but doesn't have any firm plans for the future.

    "It was just that in 2015 it is time for someone else. I'm turning to a new season," Bachus said.

    Bachus, of Vestavia Hills, won an 11th term in Congress last November, easily defeating a Democratic challenger after an unusually stiff challenge in the GOP primary from a Tea Party-backed state senator. But he also endured an investigation that concluded with Bachus being cleared by an ethics panel that investigated his investment practices around Congress' $700 billion Wall Street bailout.

    "My family didn't enjoy that last campaign," Bachus said.

    Bachus is a longtime member of the House Financial Services Committee, which he chaired for six years. His district includes much of metropolitan Birmingham and central Alabama into Tuscaloosa County.

    Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Haleyville, said Bachus will be missed.

    "I have known Spencer to be a fine, gracious person who cares deeply about Alabama and has served his district well," Aderholt said in a statement. "Spencer chaired the Financial Services Committee during a time of shaky markets with a steady hand."

    Bachus' announcement came about four months after Republican Rep. Jo Bonner of Mobile announced his resignation from southwest Alabama congressional seat to accept a job at the University of Alabama.
