Finally, A GOP Litmus Test
A prominent attorney, Jim Bopp, Jr., has come up with a plan called the “Resolution on Reagan’s Unity Principle for Support of Candidates” and it’s being circulated among RNC members in the hopes of generating party support.
What does this have to do with Reagan? “President Ronald Reagan believed … that someone who agreed with him 8 out of 10 times was his friend, not his opponent,” the resolution states. With that in mind, if a candidate strayed from the list on three or more issues, the RNC resolution, if approved, would block him/her from receiving financial support and/or official endorsements.
