U.S. Senate candidate and tea party activist Jamie Radtke is calling on her fellow GOP nominee hopeful George Allen to offer an opinion on last week’s budget deal.

Radtke, who has said that she would have voted against the compromise, arguing that $38 billion in cuts is not enough, pointed out that Allen has yet to make his feelings known. 

"The people of Virginia and America have a right to know: Would George Allen have voted for or against the $38 billion compromise?" Radtke said in a statement. "A one-word answer will suffice.” 

Politico also noted that Allen was one of only a handful of Republican Senate candidates not to have voiced opposition to the compromise.

A spokesman for Allen could not immediately be reached.
