RMC National Board co-Chair Candy Straight has a new blog up at the Huffington Post today. Candy addressed the dangerous “purity test resolution” being pushed by Party extremists that would cut many of the RNC’s top recruits out of funding, and mandate the so-called litmus tests. Candy’s post, which reminds all of us that an inclusive big tent GOP is the one and only way to win elections and promote the real Republican agenda of sound fiscal policy and economic growth.
On the heels of this post came the RNC announcement that the resolution has been changed so that, while there is still a negative litmus test, it cannot be used to withhold funding. This shows that the RNC recognizes that refusing to endorse anyone who disagrees with the Party on controversial social issues- and instead embraces the core issues of the Republican Party- is foolish; but they still must appease the small group of extremists that continue to try to manipulate the GOP.
