Pence and Shadegg Call for a Return to Reagan

Rep. Mike Pence is building his run for Republican leader in the House by calling for a return to Reagan principles.

From Reuters:

"We are in the wilderness because we walked away from the limited government principles that minted the Republican Congress," Rep. Mike Pence wrote to colleagues after Democrats seized control of the House of Representatives and the Senate in this week's elections.

The Indiana Republican, a major voice of the conservative wing in the House
who is seeking a leadership position in his party, described himself as dedicated to providing "a credible and persuasive voice for the Reagan agenda."

Arizona Congressman Shadegg is urging a return to these same principles - and is recalling the 1994 Contract with America.

"Now is the time to return to the ideals that swept us into a governing majority," said John Shadegg of Arizona, quoting from the 1994 Contract with America, the manifesto of Reagan's ideological heirs. Shadegg also is seeking a leadership role.

Well, they have the right idea.
