What happened in the Mississippi primary and the run-off race that followed was an absolute disgrace. Using GOP funds to accuse a good conservative of being a racist to appeal to Democrat voters in a Republican primary was simply reprehensible. It must not be allowed to happen again.
The Proper roles of the Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) must be completely rethought and repositioned. None of them should be permitted to intervene in primaries.
Their sole purpose should be refocused on defeating Democrats, not fellow Republicans. Republican incumbents should be required to raise their own money for primaries, knowing that if they win, they'll get significant help from the national party organizations in the general election.
I believe their proper role is to support the GOP candidates whom the people in each state pick, not pick those winners for them.
Last, I also believe it violates everything we stand for as conservatives to have such top down national interference in local GOP primaries.
For all of the aforementioned reasons, I ask that leaders of each of the three big Republican Committees in Washington DC – the RNC, NRSC, and NRCC – individually and collectively agree to stop intervening in GOP primaries, and focus instead on helping the winners of those GOP primaries defeat Democrats.
