After last night, Republican office holders as a whole are more conservative and more diverse than last decade’s version of the GOP.
I am particularly glad to see we now look less like a bunch of crackers. Strong Black conservatives Tim Scott and Alan West are now congressmen. Hispanic Republicans Brian Sandoval and Suzanna Martinez are now governors. And Marco Rubio is Senator-Elect from Florida and a star already.
In a country where Obama and Democrats try to inflame ethnic divisions for political gain, last night’s results are a healthy development.
But, but, I thought us Tea Party Republicans were supposed to be raaaaacist. Apparently not.
I may further address GOP gains among Hispanics in a separate post.
