ProjectVirginia Co-Founders Offer Interesting Advice To Nevada Republicans RE: Senator Reid

You may be familiar with ProjectVirginia and the work they did to bring the Virginia elections into the modern technological age during the 2009 Virginia elections. Working with candidates on all things “New Media” and beyond, their influence on the positive outcome for Republicans was considerable.

The Co-founders of ProjectVirginia, Ford O’Connell and Steve Pearson, have written an article for The Washington Times that continues their record of sage advice to Republicans, advice that the Republican Party of Nevada would do well to heed.

Republicans have a wonderful opportunity to retire Harry Reid and begin to bring some common sense back into the US Senate. But this could easily be an opportunity lost if Republicans do not tread carefully. The article cites the NY-23 debacle:

If we’ve learned anything from the New York 23rd District House race last year and the Florida and California Republican Senate primary races this year, it’s that the Republican National Committee (RNC) must resist the temptation to attempt to play kingmaker. In all three cases, the RNC’s blessings earned candidates nothing but attacks from those in their own party and served the interests only of Democrats.

The article contains advice that is relevant not only to Nevada Republicans, but to all Republicans as we begin the task of retaking the House and Senate. This article is a road-map to Republican success in 2010 and onwards. There is no doubt O’Connell and Pearson have their pulse on the heartbeat of America. The possibility of a three way race is something that is avoidable by nominating the right candidate.

Consider this paragraph from the article:

The RNC can play a significant and positive role in replacing Mr. Reid with a Republican, but it must reach outside its traditional playbook, resist the urge to play kingmaker and work with all candidates – and all Silver State Republicans – to build turnout and the party brand. It will require uncommon discipline and focus, but the stakes – both attainable and significant – make the effort worthwhile.

Perhaps it is time for ProjectVirginia to become ProjectAmerica. Read the entire article and see for yourself.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
