A thought today from Haley Barbor...

That all Illinois Republicans should keep in mind..

One key element of Barbour's recipe for revival: expanding the Republican Party by reaching out to moderates. In the '90s, he backed moderate candidates in the Northeast and Midwest and helped to elect moderate governors like California's Pete Wilson, New Jersey's Christie Whitman, and Massachusetts's Bill Weld. He thinks the party ought to be doing the same thing today: "People are crazy if they think we win by getting more pure. We win by getting big."
