Norquist reminds his constituency to continue "district by district"

Earlier this week, I caught the very conservative Investor's Business Daily (November 13, 2006) offering a strategy comment from Grover Norquist in their front page story titled: Conservatives Spar Over Iraq, Values After Stinging Loss. Sorry, no link.
Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said social issues can be local concerns for Republicans, but don't have to go national.

"It's not reasonable to suggest that the pro-life issue in toto hurts Republicans. That's not true. It actually helps them," Norquist said. "you have to look at it district by district. You don't run an anti-stem cell candidate in downtown New York, but you want to have a right-to-life in a Catholic neighborhood or the South".
This is nothing new.

Funny how this mirrors, probably not coincidentally, the Dominionist strategy for takeover, one school board at a time.

I think Norquist's remarks affirms the foresight and wisdom of Dean's 50 state strategy as the way to go, namely, local.
