There must be a broad conversation about the direction of the conservative movement. We must restore Reaganite optimism & shed Trump’s dystopian “American carnage” to regain voters Trump alienated, but keep those he attracted. More from me in

Thank you to for his critical win in Montana and for today's news that he was a volunteer in the COVID-19 vaccine trials. That's the kind of leadership we need in the senate.

Two Michigan legislators meet today with Donald Trump, who will inflict on them the political equivalent of blunt force trauma. The GOP's honor & integrity rest on the character of these two men. If they resist, we must come to their defense. If they falter, we are in trouble.
