Richard Viguerie revolutionized conservative messaging and fundraising. His work helped launch the Reagan Revolution. And he helped power the Tea Party movement.
This legend now pleads with Republicans of all stripes to unite behind their party’s nominees Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
In the post, Viguerie points out his own disagreements with Governor Pence over Common Core and Indiana’s Religious Freedom Amendment to show Republicans they can and should support candidates who are less than perfect.
Friends, we’ve had our howl of frustration – and after over 50+ years of involvement in the conservative movement at the national level I can say with certainty there will be more times between now and Election Day when we are frustrated with our candidates.
But it is time for conservatives to start spending our energy fighting and winning the election we have, rather than wasting our time and energy wishing for one that is not to be.
Mr. Viguerie concludes:
Friends, this is now a binary choice: Trump and Pence vs. Hillary Clinton.
In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.
That’s why the Tea Party for Trump is here—to make the right binary choice.
