Collins Proposes Ballot Measures

Gentry Collins, a candidate for chair of the Republican National Committee, thinks the GOP should place anti-Obamacare measures on state ballots in 2011:

“We at the RNC (should) lead a campaign to put referenda on the ballot to repeal Obama Care in as many states as state law allows, which is nearly two dozen,” said Gentry Collins, a veteran operative who most recently was the RNC’s political director. “What that does, I think, is prepares us for 2012 from a turnout perspective. But in 2011, it gives some constructive, positive place for all the energy that exists in the grassroots, in particular in the tea party, for conservative change.”
