As the Republican Party continues to plot its path into the future, there are a few divergent paths that they could take.
One of those paths remains parallel to the proverbial tracks upon which the Trump Train is locked, veering heavily to the right and traveling through deep red, rural communities the nation over.
The other path is being carved to run perpendicular to the MAGA-motivated avenue describe earlier, and seeks to divorce the GOP from The Don.
It is this latter path that’s caught the eye of Georgia authorities.
Lieutenant Gov. Geoff Duncan (R-GA) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Republicans did not need to pass election reform bills. Instead, he argued they needed to move past former President Donald Trump’s “tone and strategy.”
Duncan said, “We passed four election reform bills two weeks ago in the senate. As you mentioned a second ago, there is a lot of solutions in search of a problem. Republicans don’t need election reform to win. We need leadership. Millions of Republicans are waking up realizing Donald Trump’s tone and strategy is un-winnable in forward-looking elections. We need real leadership and new focus, GOP 2.0, and includes moderate in the middle to get us to the next election.”
Donald Trump’s post-election phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger is now the subject of a state-level investigation, making the Peach State a troublesome spot for the GOP in general at the moment.
