From anger to a plan for the Republican Party

(Continued)

So on the 2014 ballot, we have Scott Brown for U.S. Senate, Richard Tisei for Congress in the 6th, other Weld-Republicans running in other congressional districts. Charlie Baker runs for governor again, with Karyn Polito for lieutenant governor. The best of this year’s Republican legislative candidates give it another try, now part of a coordinated Weld-Republican effort. Social conservatives will be encouraged only if they stop beating the dead election issues of abortion/gay marriage and get serious about the national debt and the fiscal problems of Massachusetts, more serious than presently admitted.

Jerry, look, there’s hope!
