Republican Virginia Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears challenged MSNBC host Joy Reid to invite her on her show after the liberal pundit called Republicans “dangerous” following Glenn Youngkin’s gubernatorial win Tuesday night. “You have to be willing to vocalize that these Republicans are dangerous,” Reid said. “That this isn’t a party that’s just another political party that disagrees with us on tax policy. That at this point, they’re dangerous. They’re dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft, White nationalism eventually leads to the hardcore stuff.” “I wish Joy Reid would invite me on her show,” Sears said on “The Story” Wednesday after hearing Reid’s remarks. “Let’s see if she’s woman enough to do that. I’d go in a heartbeat.”
Conservatives on Twitter have fallen in love with Sears and rightly so as she everything a newbie Republican pol needs to be a star. But they shouldn’t overplay their hand here and instead stay on message by focusing on policy issues that matter to voters.
