Super Tuesday is on the horizon and Heritage’s Brian Darling takes a look at the big issues at stake as voters head to the polls in 24 states tomorrow. Citing a recent National Review Online piece by Mike Franc, Darling says conservatives should elevate a few issues above the others: winning the war on terrorism, confronting the coming fiscal crisis, and making the case for pro-growth economic policies and smaller government.
Darling also touches on President Bush’s threat to veto spending bills that do not cut the number of earmarks. And finally, he notes an upcoming Supreme Court on the Second Amendment. This Thursday at Heritage, Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) will speak about the individual right to keep and bear arms.
