Why the GOP Should Stop Treating Its Political Rival Like It’s a Political Machine

By Chris HayesNovember 21, 2016At least one Republican Senate candidate is calling on President Donald Trump’s party to quit labeling him a political puppet and to treat his campaign as a legitimate political enterprise.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) told The Hill that he believes the GOP should abandon the label “party of the past.”

“I think we’re in the midst of a new era of political party, not the old era of partisan politics,” he said.

“I think this is a new party that we’re going to see in the coming years.”

In a statement, Cornyn said the GOP “is not a party of the old.

We are not a partisan party.”

He also said the party has a mandate to deliver for the people and “to stand up for them.”

“While we have no plans to label our nominee, I will continue to call on Republicans across the country to unite around a conservative agenda,” he wrote.

Cornyn’s remarks come after several Republican Senate candidates endorsed his call for Republicans to ditch the label and treat Trump’s presidential campaign as “legitimate political enterprises.”

The term “party” was created in 1796 as a way to describe the parties political and ideological structure.

It was first used to describe Congress, the Supreme Court, and state governments in 1804.

Cornuyn has endorsed a more inclusive description of the Republican Party, calling it a “non-partisan” organization.

The term has since been used to refer to any political party other than the party of a given candidate, and some have called for the party to abandon the “party tag.”

Sen. Pat Roberts (R) said he would call for a new label to be adopted for the Republican party, saying that the party should be treated as a non-partisan organization that is nonpartisan and “independent of party affiliation.”

“Republicans are a party.

They should be judged by the standards of the nation.

We should not have a party tag, and we shouldn’t be treated like the old party,” Roberts said in a statement to The Hill.

“This should not be a partisan label.

We have a mandate from the American people to fulfill our responsibility to them.

It’s time for Republicans in Congress to join us in this responsibility.”

Sen.(R-KS) told Politico last week that he is “very excited” about the prospect of a Trump presidency, but believes the “partisan label” has “been a problem for years” and that the term has “failed to advance a meaningful agenda for the country.”

He added that Republicans should “reassess” the term and begin using it in a more positive way.
