This is an interesting article about how one Republican lost badly in 2008, regrouped, then came back to win decisively in 2012. He didn’t change his positions but he did work on how he articulated them. He ran a smarter race, started earlier, and worked harder.
McCrory stayed on message – jobs and the economy – and refused to get sidetracked into issues such as abortion. He is all for an Hispanic outreach. But he reminds: “They want to hear about jobs and the economy, too.”
Nationally and here in New Hampshire, Republicans might learn from what McCrory did.
