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.

    The best female and minority candidates they have been able to come up with this year are Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy.

      Nikki kind of hides her diversity and Vivek is an idiot.

        She can’t hide being a woman though. Which still makes her the best woman they could come up with. And even she’s become a butt of the MAGA people’s jokes.

      And both are about as appetizing as a shart down the throat.
