GOP Sen: Stop Nominating People With 'Questionable Records On Race'

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/scott-stop-noms-quesiton-record-race

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) submitted a letter to The Wall Street Journal on Thursday in response to an editorial on judicial nominee Thomas Farr this week that argued Democrats should stop calling racism to advance their agenda.

Scott agreed that while a nominee’s history “should be seen through a wider lens, the solution isn’t simply to decry ‘racial attacks.'”

“Instead, we should stop bringing candidates with questionable track records on race before the full Senate for a vote,” he wrote. “What this means, regardless of the obvious issues the Democratic Party has on race, is that the Republican Party must strive to do better. We can build on the momentum of opportunity zones and criminal-justice reform to show we are serious about tackling real issues facing people of color. I know conservative solutions can transform lives, but if folks don’t trust us, implementing those solutions becomes impossible.”

1. Good luck with that, Sen. Scott

Bobby Jindal* similarly counseled his Republican colleagues to stop being the stupid party. How did that work out?

*Who? Exactly.

2. One problem with that Mr. Scott...

That eliminates a huge percentage of your party.
