The G.O.P. strategy to win back the White House, and thus control all three branches of government, is to vilify the front-runner, as described here, and to suppress the vote, as described here (“Inside the 50 Year Campaign to Roll Back the Voting Rights Act”) and here (“Nine Years Ago, Republicans Favored Voting Rights. What Happened?”).
Makes sense from their point of view, but I hope they don’t succeed.
Quote of the Day
