the youth movement to the right


Hall — who at age 91 is the oldest sitting member in the history of the House of Representatives — finished in first place in the March primary but failed to earn the majority of the vote necessary to avoid the runoff that has ultimately ended his career representing the Lone Star State’s 4th District.

Apparently the challenger was a “Tea Party” challenger to his right.  Which begs the question:
Was his loss a result of being a perceived “RINO”, or whatever… or of being… urm… 91 years old?
I think in a previous ergot of right wing challengers in the Republican Party to Moderate Interests, they were called… “The Young Fogies”, though no one was in their 90s.
