Limbaugh urges Republicans to back Clinton
by UPI

NEW YORK - Conservative talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh is urging Republicans in Ohio and Texas to vote for Hillary Clinton in their states' March 4 primary.

Newsmax reported Thursday that Limbaugh has urged his listeners to "pimp themselves" by voting for the New York senator.

"I understand I've got a big challenge here to try to get Republicans to change their minds on this and vote for Hillary to keep her in the race, to keep that party at war with itself," Limbaugh told listeners this week.

"It's clear that Republicans in Texas have been listening to this program where we have advised Republicans to pimp themselves for a day and go vote in the (Democratic) primary ... I just think, at this stage, the longer Hillary can stay in this, the better for us," he was quoted by Newsmax as saying.

Limbaugh said if Clinton and her Democratic rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, continue battling for their party's nomination, Democrats will not focus on Arizona Sen. John McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee.

"If Hillary loses this thing, all of that's going to come to a screeching halt," Limbaugh said. "We want all the disruption in that party as possible. It's about us winning."
