Rep. Richard Hudson, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, recently listed for reporters a slew of candidates that he described as fitting the “formula” for the GOP expanding their ranks in November.

There was Prasanth Reddy, a cancer doctor who immigrated to the U.S. from India and joined the military after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He’s running for a congressional seat in northeast Kansas. Then there was Alison Esposito, a gay former police detective running for a seat in New York.

Another example Hudson cited was George Logan, whose parents came to the U.S. from Guatemala and is running for a seat in Connecticut. Also, there’s Kevin Lincoln, an African-American and Hispanic mayor in Stockton, Calif., and Mayra Flores, who is making another run. She made history by becoming the first Mexican-born congresswoman, but she subsequently lost in the 2022 mid-terms.

    That’s because minorities are just tools to them- to work in fields, to help with optics, and to serve as punching bags, prison labor, and bogeymen.

      Also. Women have tits and tits win votes.

      For some reason manboobs don’t seem to cut it.

        manboobs don’t seem to cut it.

        They do seem to like to suckle the orange ones though.

        I think it’s a lot less about the attractiveness and more about the fact that they have a well earned reputation of misogyny so they’re needing to use women to sell anti woman policies, and as a bonus moms are great for using “family values” and “protecting the children” to take away rights.

        Everyone wised up to an old man opposing abortion, now they’re using a 30 something mother of 20.

          it’s not just that they have a “reputation”… they are misogynists.

          which is why you got people like the Howler Monkey Twins; with zero competency or apparent understanding of what they’re actually doing but plenty of plastic surgery.

            Well obviously, but what matters is the reputation of it. Before they were obviously misogynists but were able to brush it off
