In his 2016 CPAC address, Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) told his audience only a serious “principled, positive, proven” conservative candidate can win the general election.
Principled means “being conservative every single day, not just during the campaign,” said Lee, adding that a principled conservative doesn’t “hide behind talking points.” At one point, Lee invoked Reagan’s call for a “robust debate,” yet also seemed to split with the former president. Lee made the point that the right conservative candidate for 2016 will engage moderates. In 1975, Reagan notably said at CPAC, “let them go their way.”
In terms of being positive, said Lee, it’s not enough to fight against what’s in front of you. “It’s about the kind of country we do want, not about the kind of government we don’t,” he said.
