Republicans at Odds

New Orleans, La.
Even as Republicans preach the need for solidarity, divisions between the Tea Party philosophy and the GOP establishment are clear at a national conservative summit in New Orleans.

Former Republican party chairman, Haley Barbour, is warning delegates to the Republican Leadership Conference that the party must embrace compromise to win more elections.

Barbour is supporting Sen. Thad Cochran. Although the former Mississippi governor drew a standing ovation when he appeared on stage, the delegates spent the afternoon cheering conservatives who dismiss calls for compromise.
