The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan had a story yesterday about the Lt. Governor’s speech at the OGP Lincoln Day Dinner, calling for unity in the party moving into next years’ elections:
However, Rhoden has also seen divisions both at the state and national level among conservative and moderate GOP members.
“In more recent months, we have seen others casting doubt and throwing out terms like RINOs (Republicans In Name Only),” he said.
However, those labeled RINOs have produced policies and legislation that have created economic and other success while following GOP principles, he said.
“We are talking about Republicans topping the habit of putting prefixes on the name Republicans. We need to unite,” he said.
“We have a common real threat to our country right now, and it’s the Biden administration, and it’s the liberals who are destroying our nation. We as Republicans need to unite and put our divisions behind us and, once and for all, get a dose of the big picture of working together for a common goal.”
