Schier Speaks with Chicago Tribune about Minnesota's Republican Party
Steven Schier, Dorothy H. and Edward C. Congdon Professor of Political Science, recently commented on the state of Minnesota's Republican Party in the Feb. 24 edition of the Chicago Tribune. The article notes that after one of its worst election cycles in decades, the party is at a tipping point. Experts agree that Minnesota Republicans must be more inclusive, articulate what they stand for and not just against, and be at the bargaining table and willing to compromise with Democrats on policy issues. When remarking on the past two years for the party, Schier remarks, "I'm still trying to figure out what they did right."
To be competitive in 2014, Professor Schier says Republicans need to get out of debt, nominate strong candidates for governor and the Senate, and make sure their legislative candidates can match spending by their DFL opponents. "That could happen," concludes Schier. "Their one hope is the Democrats will replicate the Republican formula of the last two years."
