Binnie: “I don’t like the Republican Party”

Monday’s Washington Post article noted that GOP senate candidate Bill Binnie has a history of supporting Democrats. Now! Hampshire has learned that in a 2003 Chicago Tribune story Binnie was quoted as saying “I don’t like the Republican Party because I am pro-choice.” Binnie is identified in the story as a 2000 Bill Bradley supporter and refers to himself as “intellectually liberal”.

The article goes on to say that Binnie has a history of voting for Democrats, wasn’t supporting the 2004 re-election of President George W. Bush, and was looking at the Democrat field, which at the time included John Kerry, John Edwards, and Howard Dean. The article says that Binnie was leaning towards Wesley Clark but had not yet made up his mind.

This is not the first time that questions have been raised about Binnie’s GOP credentials. The Union Leader’s John DiStaso has noted that the former plastics businessman and race car driver contributed to Democrat Martha Fuller Clark in her congressional race against Republican John E. Sununu, as well as to Democratic congressional candidates in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

Binnie has staked out liberal turf for himself in the GOP primary, supporting abortion, gay marriage, and amnesty for illegal aliens.
