Super Tuesday Special: What Issues Are Important?

Posted By Rob Bluey On February 4, 2008 @ 5:05 pm In Scribe | Comments Disabled

Super Tuesday is on the horizon and Heritage’s Brian Darling takes a look at the big issues [1] at stake as voters head to the polls in 24 states tomorrow. Citing a recent National Review Online [2] 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 [3] 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 [4].
