It’s only the summer of 2009, but the first signs of the 2012 Presidential elections are already appearing in the GOP. Over the weekend, both MN Governor Tim Pawlenty and supporters close to LA Governor Bobby Jindal made moves that have lead most to believe that they are seriously considering a run for the GOP nomination. Both Pawlenty and Jindal hold far right views on many social issues and will be watched closely to see how they will reconcile their positions with those of the majority of voters. At RRM, we join the millions of Republicans who are looking for a common sense candidate who will promote common ground and moderation of the extreme social agenda which has dominated the GOP in recent years.
In 2008, we saw divisive social issues again sully the waters and Americans reject this method of fishing for votes that has been recently favored by the GOP. Americans don’t want the government to control their personal decisions, but are looking for solutions to the tough problems that are facing us currently, including real ideas to cut our deficit and help our economy rebound. Republicans that are going to be nominated and continue to bring the extremist dialogue to the table are not Republicans who can win in 2012.
RRM wants to know from other moderate Republicans- who would you like to see on the 2012 GOP ticket?
