Hanson says GOP may not move beyond Trump

November 17, 2022 Detroit Free Press

Jonathan Hanson, Detroit Free Press: "Many Republicans have indicated that it's time to move on from Donald Trump, but Trump clearly will not let that happen. Our politics will continue to be about him. Trump's announcement sets up a potentially brutal primary fight which could further damage his party. The failed red wave in the (2022) midterms and the defeat of many prominent Trump-supported candidates sent a clear message about Trump's appeal to voters in general, but the base of the party may not be ready to move on."
