Lytle: What will be the tea party’s role in this race?
Harrington: I think the grassroots moment is very strong. I think it really helped propel a lot of new freshmen in 2010 to Congress. I think their message is loud and clear: It doesn’t matter which party you’re from; they want to hold you accountable to the issues that are important to the people.
So I think they’ll still play a very strong factor in the up and coming elections.
Lytle: When to talk about the outcome of the elections, we think about the presidential race and the GOP field, which really hasn’t ... really hasn’t come together yet. It’s still kind of groping for direction.
What do you expect will come of that?
Harrington: Well, I think we’re still trying to find that right candidate for that position. This is going to be an election of 2012 that is monumental. I mean, we thought that 2010 was important, but honestly, our economy in the last four years has absolutely tanked. We need a real leader that understands business philosophy and things that are important in the private sector to get this eocnomy going.
So we really need a pro business candidate for the presidential race, someone that will really get our economy back on track.
Also discussed Sunday at 10 on ABC7: Health care reform.
