I can’t BELIEVE we’re doing this again!

So I wrote the following in 2013. Sadly, given that we’re having this intra-party fight again, I feel the need to repost it. “What is the one thing that can unite the MassGOP? Hint: It starts with “R”. We just had our monthly RTC meeting this past Wednesday, and our State Committeeman was there to give us an update from…
