By Dave Andrusko I’d like to draw from two sources to make a point you will not see often conceded by the mainstream media: the enormous effectiveness/impact of the get-out-the-vote work of National Right to Life and its state affiliates. The first comes from the Associated Press’ John Hanna. Writing about Kansas, Hanna’s lead …Continue reading "Further reflections three days after the very successful mid-term elections"
