It's almost six o'clock in the evening and people are slowly gathering at a lawyer's office in the Mission District to watch the first Presidential candidate debate. The host of the party is longtime San Francisco Republican Leonard Lacayo. He’s greeting everyone at the door. Inside, right next to the entrance, there is a small sign indicating that this is the Ronald Reagan Building.
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about how the party’s platform has changed since 2008. The platform draft says it opposes abortion in all cases with no exceptions for rape or incest and supports a voucher system for healthcare for seniors. Who is setting the agenda? How important is the platform? Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. Whether or not you identify as a Republican, what does the party’s platform mean to you? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
Remember when his own staffers said Mitt Romney had the conviction of an Etch-A-Sketch? Well stand back because, as we speak, the former governor from Massachussetts is being flipped over and shaken so hard, the fillings in the back teeth of his whole family are starting to rattle. What this all means is that we're entering the general election mode. So anything Mitt Romney might have said during the primary no longer applies.
