In Response To: Humpty backlash is killing GOP candidates ... (Stimer)
(WashPost) . . . Rick Wilson, a Republican strategist who has vocally opposed Trump, claimed vindication after results across the country broke against Republicans. In Wilson’s own backyard of Florida, a popular former Republican mayor of St. Petersburg went down in a surprise defeat — a result Wilson blamed on his waffling about Trump.
“Burn Donald Trump to the ground if you ever want to win another vote from a woman, a black person or a Latino,” Wilson said. “Look at the exits and the composition of the electorate. We’re getting slaughtered with women. We’re getting slaughtered with minorities.”
Former Republican Party chairman Michael Steele said the result reminded him of the 2006 election, when Republicans lost control of the House in a wave election amid low approval for President Bush. In that race, like this one, the president was a major factor, even if his name was not on the ballot.
“The lesson — and it's a very important one — is you cannot wrap your policy, or your philosophy, in one person. You’ve got to stand for something,” Steele said.
