The ‘Reagan Test – aka Purity Test’ is again being proposed for the Republican Party to implement. The logic behind this is because Scott Brown won in a Democratic state, now is the time to ensure only ‘pure’ Republicans are the candidates who will receive GOP money and support.
But it looks like there are cracks in this teapot, as well. Seems there is a group of Republicans who see Scott Brown as a person who would fail the proposed Reagan Test.
Who is correct in their assessment? Is Scott Brown the future Reagan of the Republican Party or did he just benefit from the backlash of the majority of Independents who were sending a message to the Democrats and the Establishment? I guess time will tell, won’t it?
