Republican political strategist Lucy Caldwell has some important advice for Democrats that if they heed they just may win 2022.
Republican strategist Lucy Caldwell hits the nail on the head
When someone has good advice, it does not matter the source. Lucy Caldwell has some very sound advice. It is not about ideology but the vote. And if Progressives and Democrats are willing to think outside of the box, they will succeed.
The truth is that the Republican Party is a cult as described by Norm Ornstein. The thing is, sensible Republicans need somewhere to land. If an acceptable landing place is not provided they will revert to comfort and form even if means holding their nose. Understand what Caldwell is saying. It is not about converting these people into Democrats or Progressives. It's about having them make an uncomfortable vote they can live with knowing their wound won't be salted.
In these times we do not need to know one's heart. We need to get one's vote. And like Caldwell said, unlike too much of the Democratic base, these folks are activated to vote.
I am a very left Progressive. I try to engage all sides. That is what defines a progressive. I can learn, empathize, and sympathize with anyone. Interestingly I wrote the book, "It's Worth It: How To Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, And Neighbors" where I discuss how to engage. And on my radio show Politics Done Right I keep it inviting for all without giving up my progressivism.
My Books support (1) communication techniques & (2) our Progressive message delivery.
