Republicans Reject Key Lessons from 2012

The Republican Party's "road map for winning presidential elections looks hazier than ever as GOP lawmakers and others reject what many considered obvious lessons from Mitt Romney's loss last year," the AP reports.

"House Republicans are rebelling against the key recommendation of a party-sanctioned post-mortem: embrace 'comprehensive immigration reform' or suffer crippling losses among Hispanic voters in 2016 and beyond."

"Widespread rejection of warnings from establishment Republicans goes beyond that, however. Many activists say the party simply needs to articulate its conservative principles more skillfully, without modifying any policies, even after losing the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections."
