On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist Western Correspondent Tristan Justice joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss what he learned about the state of the GOP from the Republican Governors Association annual conference in Phoenix earlier this month.
“It’s important to note that all these different states have different issues to run on, but education is really at the focal point of the culture war, and Republicans, I think, would be wise to follow the model of Glenn Younkin and adopt this issue and become champions for kids’ education. But again, they have other issues to run on as well,” Justice said.
Other issues that the GOP plans to harness in the 2022 midterms include immigration, inflation, and energy costs.
“Republicans ought to worry more about governors than anything else next year, considering just how just how the pandemic illustrated how important it is to maintain these governorships,” Justice said.
