Brian Gilmore '92 published an article in The Bradenton Herald arguing that the GOP's 'Southern Strategy' has failed.
Gilmore writes, "John Sununu, an adviser to the Romney campaign, commented that
Obama needed to "learn how to be an American." In the end, the country
rejected these low appeals, just as the vast majority of Americans are
rejecting the new secessionists who have surfaced after the election.
These are tremendously positive signs for the United States. Now,
almost 150 years since the end of the Civil War, we are at last putting
the stain of race behind us."
