    The GOP has nominated a die-hard Tea Party candidate whose lack of education is reflected in his simplistic stances on the issues. As Martha McSally said, if Jesse Kelly really thinks we can solve our energy needs by drilling more wells in the U.S., then he should have used his G.I. bill to get a degree in geology.
