During the Right Flight exodus, another GOP member has left the party citing Tea Part extremism. Former Nevada Lg. Governor Sue Wagner said this week that she has left the Republican party because "It's grown so conservative and tea-party oriented, and I just can't buy into that Former Nev. Lt. Gov. Says She's Leaving 'Tea-Party Orientated' GOP Former Nevada Lt. Gov. Sue Wagner said Tuesday that she recently left the Republican party. "It's grown so conservative and tea-party orientated and I just can't buy into that," Wagner told the Reno Gazette-Journal. "I've left the Republican Party and it's left me, at the same time." Wagner reflected on a party that has changed over the past few years. "I did it as a symbol, I guess, that I do not like the Republican Party and what they stand for today," Wagner said. "I've been a Republican all my life. My dad was active (in the GOP) in the state of Maine where I was born. It was more of a moderate, liberal Republican Party." Wagner, who served from 1991 to 1995 as the first female lieutenant governor in Nevada, supports abortion rights. In 2010, she would not endorse Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle because of her "extreme" views on abortion. House Speaker Boehner has historically accommodated uncompromising tea party positions. Lately, however, he has been less compromising, blasting Tea Party supporters in December for advising the shutdown strategy. The only power the TP has is through the GOP, but the GOP is now refusing to let these extremists hijack their party. Is this the end of the Tea Party?
