Despite the positive press this will probably draw from the mainstream media, the good news is that the Republican Main Street Partnership just rendered itself completely irrelevant with this move.
Setting aside the fact that there’s already a group of losers who have exactly the same shtick (No Labels), which makes “The Main Street Partnership” superfluous, even moderate Republican donors are going to be very reluctant to give money to a group that’s going to support moderate Democrats. If the idea is to go completely beyond political parties and reach out to the genuinely undecided, there aren’t very many of those people, they aren’t very enthusiastic about politics and they’re extremely wishy-washy, all of which makes it impossible to build any kind of political movement on them.
But, it’s also worth noting that this proves a point; These RINOs really are Republicans in name only because they have no principles and are just as willing to embrace Democrats as Republicans. If you don’t believe in conservative ideals and you’re just a willing to endorse Democrats as Republicans, how can you, “represent the governing wing of the Republican Party?”
