Meghan McCain: If GOP Doesn’t Wake Up, May Leave Party

In a sharply worded The Daily Beast op/ed Friday, Meghan McCain warned the Republican Party that if it does not “wake up” and modernize on social issues, she may leave her party. Noting that, “I don’t fit into the traditional Republican box that the wingnuts who have hijacked my party think all Republicans should,” she wrote, “I also don’t believe it’s the government’s role to tell gays and lesbians that they can’t be given the same opportunities in American just because of who they love.” McCain notes that if it does not adapt, the GOP will not survive and that if she does not see signs of moderation on social issues, she “will consider registering as an Independent in 2016.”
