Is conservatism dead? Many on the right don’t think so

While some may be writing the obituary, the conservative movement is still kicking. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the right:

1. Trump isn't killing conservatism

From columnist David Limbaugh: Reports of the death of conservatism have been greatly exaggerated. You may not like Trump, but he has slowed the left’s roll.

2. I'm glad I got booed at CPAC

From columnist Mona Charen: If getting booed at CPAC brands me an old-time conservative, then count me in. 

3. Sorry, but conservatism isn't dead just yet

From The Federalist: The moment the left writes off conservatism as extremism is the moment the right wins.

The left weighs in on how the right will do in midterms, presidential election.

Opinion: Track and deport will keep Georgians safe

Tackling illegal immigration and protecting Georgia families from criminal aliens is a fundamental component of my campaign for governor. When I announced my candidacy in March of 2017, I told a standing-room-only crowd at the Cobb County Republican Party headquarters that it was time to draw a clear line in the sand on illegal immigration. &ldquo...
Opinion: Pence — Trump’s making Ga., America great again

When I visit Atlanta Friday – my second time in the Peach State in just the past week – I’ll bring a message to all the good people of Georgia.
