Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Breaking: Mark Sanford Was Running for President

 

As Governor of South Carolina, Mark Sanford was a favorite of the GOP’s conservative wing. Successful and pragmatic, he was an ideal leader to promote limited government on the national stage. Then, he took a fateful hike along the Appalachian Trail.

The outing was actually to Buenos Aires where he met his mistress; an adventure that devastated his socially conservative brand, not to mention his marriage. A few years later, he returned to politics as a congressman for the Palmetto State but soon criticized the Trumpward drift.

They also […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. I Recently Acquired a Wife

 

hoboSignI know. It’s news to friends and family. No one was more surprised than I.

She’s very neat and so discreet. She seems to eat like a bird and likes everything I cook. There was not even any sorting out of who sleeps on which side of the bed, or whose clothes and toiletries go where. She is financially independent and undemanding. Indeed, my bank, utilities and even the vaunted tech giants haven’t even noticed her moving in with me.

Can anybody connect me to an internal GOP strategy or data person? The 2018 election left us with 235 Democrat congressional districts and 200 Republican districts. So we’d need to flip 18 to win back the house. More

4. The black community needs to become politically competitive. Today Democrats know they will win without even bothering to campaign, without any regard for candidate quality. Republicans, on the other hand, know there’s zero chance of winning, no matter how good their candidate or his roots, record or pedigree in the district. More

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. How the GOP Can Win Black Votes: Sideline the NAACP

 

A note: I’m using NAACP is a stand-in for itself and every other supposed “civil rights” organization that purports to speak on behalf of the black community, but, in actuality, has cast its own mission and history aside, and is now no more than a fully owned and operated subsidiary of the Democratic National Committee.

Let’s be clear here: any GOP plan involving the NAACP, the Urban League, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the Congressional Black Caucus, etc., or any affiliated individuals (e.g., pastors, community organizers, etc.) in any outreach effort to the black community is not only a waste of time, but a willfully stupid act of self-sabotage. It earns you no goodwill, and it only arms them with extra credibility for when they inevitably turn around to smear you as a racist.

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. How The GOP Can Win Black Votes: Actually Talk to Black People

 

How should Republicans go about winning over black voters? Most of the articles I’ve seen with similar titles tend to offer a high overarching view of how Republicans should go about winning over more black voters than an actual plan on how to go about it.

What would an actual plan for this look like? How do you put into action? Where do you need to go? Who do you need to see and talk to? What arguments should you push? What pitfalls should you look out for?

The recent announcement of retirement by Speaker Paul Ryan of the U.S. House of Representatives has been pontificated on by many to be the result of President Trump’s success in changing the Republican Party. This, however, is not true. President Trump has probably succeeded in changing some, not all, of the public’s perception of the […]
