Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham, an influential conservative thought leader, said Wednesday the GOP must sheds its reputation as the party of big business and embrace a more “libertarian, populist” identity.
Speaking at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, Needham argued the GOP needs to “take on cronyism and the way K Street runs this town” if it hopes to broaden its appeal with voters.
“Becoming a party that more authentically stands up for the working class, becoming a party that more authentically stands up to a culture of cronyism in this town … is a more realistic path toward electoral victory,” Needham said.
“The Republican Party is in a bind right now between their base voters who authentically believe in Ronald Reagan’s vision of conservatism and K Street, which is necessary in their minds to raise funds to run multi-million dollar elections,” he continued.
“The Republican Party should start authentically leading based on the values that their voters have, and not trying to play this game of both appeasing K Street and giving lip service to their voters.”
