‘I’D BUY THEM DRINKS’ — HALEY BARBOUR EXPLAINS WHY HE’D RATHER SUPPORT LESS-CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS THAN LOSE ELECTIONS

Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, whose been active in conservative politics for going on five decades, called the infighting among Republicans “the enemy of victory.”

In an interview with TheBlaze contributor Mallory Factor, Barbour lamented that some conservative organizations are spending too much money trying to beat Republicans in primaries, resulting in Democrats winning the seats in the general election.

“That’s bad for our country, I would rather have Olympia Snowe today than Angus King. I mean, I would celebrate, I’d buy them drinks if we could have her back compared to left-wing ‘independent’ who took her place,” Barbour said in a video interview (below). “Purity in politics is the enemy of victory.”
