I do not think the Republicans are going to lose the State House or State Senate this coming year, but unless they are aggressive, the Republicans just might lose some of their numbers — and the margins are already small. With that in mind, it is troubling to think that the GOP might not have a proactive message for the coming year. Frankly, I’ve talked to about a dozen Republican State Representatives and Senators and all of them are talking about playing defense.
I start at the premise that the GOP has not been in power long enough to play defense, the GOP needs to be focus on what the Democrats did wrong and continue to aggressively undo decades of bad ideas. I fear the GOP has taked on the “establishment” mentality too soon. With that, we’ll be pondering more message ideas here at Peach Pundit, expanding our coverage, and adding to our categories of posts.
As always, feel free to chime in with comments.
