ICYMI – The New York Times ran a piece on progress within the Republican Party in backing candidates that look like America. Here’s the summary, followed by a link to the full article –

WASHINGTON — As Republicans took control of an unprecedented 69 of 99 statehouse chambers in the midterm elections, they did not rely solely on a bench of older white men. Key races hinged on the strategic recruitment of women and minorities, many of them first-time candidates who are now learning the ropes and joining the pool of prospects for higher office.

  1. True..but they all had something in common…they were Republicans in deed in addition to just name.SD had a chance to put one in the win column had our nominee actually been one of those.

    Not sure which “old white men” bench is being referred; is that the one with Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Mia Love, Allen West, Kelly Ayotte, Ted Cruz, Condelezza Rice, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Ablerto Gonzalez, Elaine Chow, Michelle Bachman, Kay Bailey Huthchinson, Illeana Ros-Litenin, and scores of others???

    This tired old meme used to be reserved for the Dems to try to the “bigot” “intolerant” narrative is subtly (and not so subtly) cast by so-called “Republicans” those who simply oppose their left=leaning agenda..Thank God we didn’t have to hear this stale old rhetoric from our Representative in Washington for the next two years…
