Com­mon strat­egy needed for 2016

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

In my book, mod­er­ates and Tea Par­ty­ers ur­gently need a com­mon strat­egy if they are to pre­vail in the 2016 elec­tions. With­out one, they are sim­ply dead on ar­rival.

Much de­pends on the in­di­vid­ual they sup­port, to­gether, for pres­i­dent. Many are talk­ing about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as a pos­si­ble GOP can­di­date th­ese days, but the truth is that he would never be sup­ported by the Tea Party, just as Sen. Rand Paul, Ken­tucky Repub­li­can, would never be sup­ported by mod­er­ates and in­de­pen­dents.

In the 2008 elec­tions there was a can­di­date to whom I think Repub­li­cans should pay at­ten­tion: for­mer Arkansas Gov. Mike Huck­abee, a for­mer Bap­tist preacher. Among other things, Mr. Huck­abee can reawaken the im­por­tant Chris­tian con­ser­va­tive bloc that re­mained ab­sent in 2012. FELIPE FER­NAN­DEZ Cut­ler Bay, Fla.
