Is the Republican Party Dead? A Zócalo Public Square event

Is the Republican Party Dead?  Thursday, August 10 at 7:30 PM A Zócalo Public Square event National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, 111 N. Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA Moderated by Christina Bellantoni, Los Angeles Times Assistant Managing Editor, Politics

The Republican Party should be the dominant force in American politics. GOP politicians now control the White House, 33 governorships, and hold majorities in the U.S. House, Senate, and 32 state legislatures. But in spite of its electoral success, the rise of Donald Trump has raised difficult questions about the party’s long-term future. Does Trump’s flirtation with white nationalism threaten to taint the party of Lincoln and permanently alienate younger and more diverse generations of Americans? Can the GOP survive the rise of anti-establishment forces on the right that reject old-guard conservatives who remain its financial base? Is unity even possible for a GOP trying to navigate vast regional and ideological differences among its members, or is the party destined to split? Sacramento GOP political consultant and partner at GrassrootsLab Mike Madrid, public affairs strategist and founder of 3.14 Communications Cassandra Pye, and Ballotpedia publisher Leslie Graves visit Zócalo to consider whether the Republican Party is stronger or weaker than it looks.
