Tea Party Yanked GOP to the Right

Wall Street Journal: "Tea party-aligned candidates may lack traction in GOP primaries, as Tuesday's results from North Carolina and Ohio suggest, but the movement is showing its power by shaping the 2014 campaign agenda and pushing Republicans to the right."

"Many GOP incumbents and candidates backed by party leaders have embraced tea-party priorities, especially the call to repeal the 2010 health law and slash government spending. That has put those candidates in a stronger position to deflect challenges from the right than in the past two election cycles."
