Some of the biggest GOP donors are pushing for the Republican Party to make a major reversal one of its core stances, according to the Politico.
Major Republican financiers want the party to reverse its platform to one that accommodates same-sex marriage at the party's convention this July. Conservative talk show radio host Rush Limbaugh today explained that party platforms at conventions are often tossed aside afterwards and forgotten, but this time around, a reversal on something as significant as same-sex marriage will stick in the minds of both party supporters and opponents.
Rush clarified what he sees as the bigger picture, saying, "...as you think about how the establishment is attempting to manipulate this convention to get a nominee they want, somebody not currently running, it will give you an idea of what they want this party to be once they finish running a convention with results they have engineered."
Conservative activist Jim Bopp warned, “Conservative forces need to understand there is a serious challenge, and they need to take it seriously.”
