No front page writer at RedState can be pro-abortion. After fifteen years, the events of yesterday make clear that RedState must change its policy. We will remain conservative in the primary, but now we must say we will generally be Republican in the general. There must come a time, however, when we are willing to blow up a Republican in a general election and make an example of them for betraying our first principles.

That time is now.

This site must now commit itself to defeating Republicans in general elections, even if it means a Democrat will get elected, should those Republicans betray the first principles of our party. Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC)51% must be first on that list. If she is not beaten in a primary, the fight must continue in the general election.
