The Kansas Republican Party says last night’s big wins for the GOP show Americans are unconvinced by Democratic health care proposals and the economic stimulus package.
But, in a statement this morning from state GOP Chairwoman Amanda Adkins, the party says more work is necessary before Republicans can count on big gains next year.
“President Obama won New Jersey, Virginia and New York’s 23rd District by at least 5% in 2008. The Democrats’ defeat in Virginia and New Jersey in Tuesday’s elections is an indicator that Americans want more than empty promises of hope,” Adkins wrote.
“Voters believed in Obama’s message but the change they wanted did not include a government takeover of healthcare and a so-called stimulus package that has done nothing to put Americans back to work.
“The close race in New York indicates that we still have work to do. We must educate voters on the pro-growth, pro-business platform that will achieve sweeping victory for Republicans in 2010.”
