Wisconsin GOP thinks creating ‘safe’ spaces for Trump supporters is key to winning in 2020

Published

on

The Wisconsin Republican Party got dealt a series of stinging defeats during the 2018 midterm elections — but the party doesn’t think it needs a big change in its policies.

Rather, as outlined by The New Republic’s Alex Shephard, they think it’s important to create “safe” spaces for Trump supporters on places like college campuses.

Citing a recent autopsy report of the Wisconsin GOP’s losses in 2018, Shephard documents how the party constantly dances around its problems and relies mostly on promoting better organizing.

In particular, the report bemoans the plight of College Republican groups “who find themselves outnumbered and too often unsupported” on college campuses, although the report does say that “college campuses have an obligation to allow diverse points of view to be heard, and that includes the center right perspective.”

The report then claims that the best path to victory in 2020 is to “help make it safe to outwardly support the President, and use our recognized superiority in data to implement a strategy that re-elects our President and benefits our local and legislative candidates.”

On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.

"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.

"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."

Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.

On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Justice Department officials are closing insider trading investigations into three senators — Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

However, a fourth probe, into insider trading allegations against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), is reportedly ongoing.

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation began the investigations two months ago, as reports emerged that several members of Congress, their spouses or their investment advisers sold hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock after lawmakers attended closed-door briefings about the threat posed by the new coronavirus," reported Aruna Viswanatha.
