By Mark Landler – July 30, 2018 – 12:30pmIn the final days before the 2018 midterm elections, conservatives have already begun to make an impact on the way the party chooses its candidates.
For years, the right has been pushing for candidates to run on the basis of personal traits and the idea that the candidate is better suited to the environment and the country than others.
But for the first time in decades, the party is pushing for a candidate who is actually qualified to run.
This week, it announced its first women candidates in nearly a decade, and its first major candidates to have a diverse list of advisers and advisers in their campaign.
The party’s first women candidate, Liz Cheney, is an experienced businesswoman and former vice president who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.
She has the support of some prominent Republican women, including former congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Arizona Republican congresswoman Kay Granger.
The GOP’s second candidate, Karen Handel, is the state attorney general, a position that will be up for grabs this fall.
Handel is a moderate conservative who ran for governor in 2010 and is considered a favorite to win re-election.
She also served as the top Republican fundraiser in the state.
In a statement, the Republican Party of Georgia said that the announcement was a sign that the party was changing its messaging to better appeal to women and minorities.
While Handel’s candidacy was a huge victory for the party, it was not the only one.
The GOP announced the appointment of former House Speaker Paul Ryan as vice chairman, and also announced that it will have a slate of African American and Hispanic candidates.
The party also announced the nomination of three female candidates for the position of chairman of the RNC, and the appointment for a slate with four women to be its vice chairman.
All of these announcements came as the party’s congressional leaders are set to be forced to step down at the end of July.
But the party has made no secret of its desire to nominate women for leadership roles in the upcoming midterm elections.
In fact, the House GOP is reportedly considering putting a $50,000 bounty on Handel.
In an interview with Fox News, Handel said the nomination process for GOP leadership has been very competitive and it’s not a big deal.
“You want to be the first,” she said.
“If I don’t get there, I’ll have to ask for my resignation.”
The announcement comes as Republicans are struggling to find their footing amid a wave of dissatisfaction with the Trump administration and its policies, particularly the rollback of immigration reform, which is a major issue for many white conservatives.
A growing number of conservative voters have come to the conclusion that the Republican party is no longer an appealing alternative to Democratic Party.
The national party is not only unpopular with many conservatives, but is increasingly viewed by them as a vehicle for corporate interests and elites who have long benefited from the policies they helped enact.
“I don’t want to get into the politics of the 2020 elections, but I don�t think there�s any question the Democrats have an advantage over Republicans in 2018,” said John Weaver, a Republican strategist.
“But the Republicans are the party of Reagan, not the Democrats.
That�s the difference between winning and losing the 2020 election.”
The GOP is now pushing for more candidates to be qualified on the ground to run in the 2020 midterm elections to attract more support among minority voters and independents.
“If you look at the candidates that have announced, we�re putting a lot of focus on women,” said Josh Holmes, a GOP strategist.
“We�ve seen a surge of interest in women candidates for statewide offices,” he said.
“The GOP has always had a strong presence in minority communities, but now we’re seeing that that�s becoming more of an issue,” said Sarah McBride, a spokesperson for the RNC.
In addition to Handel and Cheney, other GOP candidates who are being considered are:State Treasurer Josh Shapiro, former state House Speaker David Braley, former Republican House Majority Leader Bill Brady, former State Treasurer Adam Kinzinger, and former State Rep. Mike Stegeman.
“In the past, Republican women candidates have been criticized for not being strong enough in their platform,” said David French, a political science professor at the University of Georgia.
“There are a number of women running who are strong in their platforms but not strong enough on the campaign trail to appeal to minorities and young people.”
The party also has announced a slate that includes former state Rep. Michelle Brown, former Democratic U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford, former Georgia Secretary of State Mike Ross, former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former White House chief of staff John Kelly, former Texas U.A.E. President Ed Gillespie, and Georgia U. S. Sen. John Cornyn.
“This is a very diverse slate, which
