“The mission of this blog is twofold: to replace Lugar with somebody we can trust, and to present State Senator Mike Delph as that man we can trust,” the blog’s mission statement says. “To win this, we absolutely have to identify a good candidate as early as possible and rally behind him. We believe that Delph is our best hope, both because of his impressive record of authentic conservatism and because of his electability.”
Delph told Roll Call he doesn’t know who’s running the blog, writing in an e-mail that “I thought I knew who put up the website, but I was wrong.” He added that he’s “out of the business of chasing down rumor and innuendo.”
“I am humbled by the folks who have taken an interest in my political career and legislative agenda,” he wrote.
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill. Please send us your questions anything from office etiquette, to handling awkward moments, to what happens when the work life gets too personal. Submissions will be treated anonymously.
