Strategist O'Connell To GOP: Honor Reagan But Move On

Republican candidates must stop "kneecapping each other" over who is most like GOP icon Ronald Reagan and create a new agenda to win over voters, noted GOP strategist Ford O'Connell says.

"Over the past two presidential cycles . . . we wound up engaging in a 'battle royal' over who's the right player to Ronald Reagan," O'Connell told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Ronald Reagan's the greatest president of the modern era, but essentially having this sort of a bloodbath . . . makes us really look out of touch," he said Tuesday.
