GOP strategist Rick Wilson said members of his party should vote for some Democrats in the forthcoming midterm elections in an interview with The Hill on Friday.
An Overview of Wilson’s Statements
Wilson stated that some Democrats are more economically conservative than Republicans.
“I think conservatives have to make a case-by-base choice,” he said. “There are actually some Democratic candidates out there who functionally now are to the right on economics of their Republican counterpart. It’s astounding.”
The Republican strategist then provided additional details to support his initial assertions.
“There are certainly people out there on the Democratic side who are not running as ‘Bernie Bros’ or as ponytail Che Guevara,” Wilson said. “They are working pretty hard to represent their states and districts.”
Wilson wrapped up his interview by sharing his opinions on midterm strategies for Republican candidates.
“A Republican in Alabama has to run the exact way as a Republican in Virginia or Vermont or Montana or California,” Wilson said. “They all have to be Donald Trump.”
