Preparing for the onslaught in 2016; Is the MAGOP ready?

Or is the better question, is there anything the MAGOP can do to preserve the 2014 additions to the state legislature when the low information voters flock to the 2016 Presidential election? Will Hillary stir as much enthusiasm among the suburban white liberal-urban minority coalition?

The homework should begin immediately. Right now I’m not seeing any ideas coming from either the “Establishment” (Hughes) or MARA (Mark Fisher) camps. Could it be that both are clueless?

Working in the GOP’s favor is that the Left, in the form of Falchuk’s United Independent Party, intends to run local candidates. UIP will siphon Democratic votes, overall.

    Hillary? I’m still thinking she get’s sidelined for health issues and then Warren runs.

    The establishment would like for candidates to have positions that allow them to shadow their opponent, like Baker did with Coakley. It’s a pickup if their opponent gaffes in the final stretch.

    The MARA folks would like candidates who can lead instead of follow and whose positions mirror Rand Paul’s.
