It’s all anyone wants to talk about, and lately that conversation has been very frustrating to me.
I have my own share of thoughts on who I think can win the White House in 2016, and I am hopeful that in due time, Americans will embrace that discussion with sincerity and dedication. However, now is not the time.
In November we have 36 Governor races, 33 Senate races, and as usual, every member in House of Representatives is up for election. 2014 isn’t a small election year; in fact, it’s one of the biggest.
Republicans need 6 Senate seats to take the Senate, and a recent Gallup poll shows that 52% of Americans disapprove of the President. That’s very promising, but it’s up to us to maintain the momentum.
We need to talk about 2014, and make our message clear to undecided voters. If conservative candidates are going to win, they’ll need to have support from people who supported the President in 2012.
Instead of just bashing the disaster called the Affordable Care Act, GOP candidates will need to present a sensible alternative to Obamacare and the big government policies that are hurting the middle class. We need to talk about jobs, taxes, and the economy, and why our candidates are best fit to fix the problems.
The prospects might look good, but if the GOP can’t offer a strong alternative, these midterm elections will be a wasted opportunity.
Let’s get ready for a big win in November, and focus on electing a majority to the House and Senate. I think the 2014 midterms are the most important elections of our lives thus far, and it’s time to focus on what we can do to make them successful.
