Listen to Republicans talking to each other at this fundraising session.
Dan Truitt is explaining how a right wing Republican can win elections in a liberal leaning Legislative District.
I think the reason is low interest and low voter turnout but he explains that you have to pretend to listen to Democrats and liberals.
Notice that Dan Truitt never mentions compromising with those liberal Democrats.
At the end of the fundraiser two questions were asked. One question was, ‘How do you intend to beat your Democratic opponent.’
