Conservatives Seek to Regain Control of GOP Agenda

Washington Post: "Although many Republicans are optimistic about their chances in this year's elections, some of Washington's leading conservatives gathered Thursday to privately vent frustrations about what kind of party they will be left with after November. The group, alarmed by a resurgence of the GOP establishment in recent primaries and what activists view as a softened message, drafted demands to be shared with senior lawmakers calling on the party to 'recommit' to bedrock principles. Some of those principles laid out in the new document -- strict opposition to illegal immigration, same-sex marriage and abortion -- represent the hot-button positions that many Republican congressional candidates are trying to avoid as the party attempts to broaden its appeal."
