Intelligence Squared U.S.: Has the GOP Lost Its Way?

(Rochester, NY) – What should the Republican party look like after Donald Trump? For many prominent establishment figures, including those behind The Lincoln Project, the GOP has lost its way. The only way back, they say, is to purge the forces that brought Trump to power. But others warn that rejecting the millions of voters who supported the former president is the wrong call for the American right. Rather, the GOP should instead double down, focus on bridging the establishment and grassroots factions of their party and find a way to move forward together. In light of shifting political sands, we ask: Has the GOP lost its way? Intelligence Squared US: Has the GOP Lost Its Way? airs Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370.

For the motion is Jeff Flake, Former U.S. Senator, Arizona and Carlos Curbelo, Former U.S. Congressman. Against the motion is Ben Domenech, Publisher, The Federalist & Host, The Federalist Radio Hour and Kimberley A. Strassel, Author and Member, Wall Street Journal Editorial Board.
