New York Times: Among the Candidates in the Republican Primary in Alabama's 1st Congressional District, Tea Party Radicalism is Very Much a Part of the Mix

The New York Times article by Campbell Robertson is linked below.

NYT: How far to the right will the GOP go in Alabama's 1st Congressional District?

"But with no heir apparent for the first time in 50 years, the full spectrum of conservatism is on display: from Mr. Byrne, who speaks sunnily of the country’s ability to overcome any of its current challenges, to Dean Young, a real estate developer and Tea Party favorite who describes the stakes of the election in far less optimistic terms.
'We are witnessing the end of a Western Christian empire,' Mr. Young, 49, said at the forum."
---Campbell Robertson, New York Times
