Raggio: Move Away From The Right

raggio 385 Raggio: Move Away From The Right

Republican Bill Raggio, the longest-serving state senator in Nevada  history, says his party will lose elections if its doesn’t move away from the radical right.

Raggio made the remarks in an interview on radio station KUNR’s “Beyond the Headlines” show on Friday, a day before he steps down from the Senate seat he has held since 1972. Raggio says the GOP leadership has been taken over by a “radical element,” and seems to kick out those who don’t totally agree with what it wants. The 84-year-old Raggio says he comes from the “old school” that believes both parties must work together and that “compromise is not a dirty word.”

He says he hopes his successor has an ability to cross party lines.

    What a fooish old man, compromise enough and we will be a slave nation, of which we almost are now. Your idea of the radical right is the CONSTITUTION of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA! You should be impeached!

  • The Realist

    What a freakin’ hypocrite. This guy committed political suice by supporting Harry Reid. Also, he is showing how naive he is to politics today and the Democrat Party. We have had 2 years of No Compromise by the Democrats, their way or No way. The people/voters are/have been up in arms with the legislation that Democrats have rammed, and attempted to ram, down our throats. He reminds me of Arlan Specter and his fate is the same, shame.

    • The Realist

      That should be suicide.

  • Amazing..

    What about the radical left that is in there? Hypocrite!

    • The Realist

      It is not I that is the hypocrite, it is certainly something that the radical left is guilty of. After all for the last 20-25 years they have accused the right of doing exactly what they have for decades.
