— A former campaign manager for Kansas Republican Jerry Moran is now publicly endorsing Moran’s main rival for the U.S. Senate.

But Moran’s campaign said Sunday the former staffer is disgruntled and called the letter a trick of the campaign for fellow Congressman Todd Tiahrt.

Paul Moore said Sunday that he’s backing Tiahrt for the GOP nomination, after coming to believe that Moran was not instinctively conservative. Moore was Moran’s campaign manager from February through mid-April.

Moore made his comments in an open letter to Republicans, which he provided to The Associated Press. He also sent it to Tiahrt’s campaign.

"Paul Moore said Sunday that he’s backing Tiahrt for the GOP nomination, after coming to believe that Moran was not instinctively conservative. "

What the heck does that even mean? (unless he's acknowledging that there is very little thought involved in the current state of conservatism.)

I changed parties just to vote against Tiahrt. Not sure I felt that good about it until I saw Tiahrt was happy to advertise he was supported by the Tea Party and Sarah Palin. Moran is not "instinctively conservative" and that's a good thing. Republicans have been making mistakes voting in tea party people in primaries only to find out they are bad candidates (Sharron Angle, Rand Paul). I mean Henry Reid was dead in the water until Angle won the primary.
