GOP Antiwar Member of Congress Wins Reelection

The best hope for the success of the antiwar movement is to have friends in both major parties.

One of these friends is Republican Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina, who turned against the war despite his famous proposal to change the name of French fries to "freedom fries" soon after 9-11.

Despite the best efforts by the GOP establishment to punish and remove him, Jones easily prevailed yesterday against a pro-war opponent.

The heroic Republican Ron Paul of Texas, who was number one on the GOP's enemies list, won 70 percent against his primary opponent earlier this year. Paul has been against the war from the beginning and has often spoken out against the prospect of war with Iran.
