WASHINGTON, April 15, 2014 — It’s definitely been a busy week in the world of politics. Marco Rubio formally threw his hat into the Presidential ring this week bringing the total number of Republican candidates to 3. Hillary Clinton announced her coronation candidacy on Sunday afternoon.
Although there’s a long way to go until the primaries and then the general election Republicans better buckled up for a bumpy ride. Primary season is here!
It has been said that the Republicans have “a deep bench” of fresh and young contenders to choose from this election cycle. This is definitely true with young guns such as Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio racing towards the Republican nomination.

There are also other great contenders out there looking to throw their hat into the ring as well. Although this year’s Republican candidate field is the best it has been a long time, it is unclear whether that is a blessing or a curse.
It is no secret that Hillary has a lot of baggage and seems quite stale. Let us not forget her current email scandal. That being said, Republicans should take care to remember that the road to the White House will be bumpy and that’s putting it lightly.
A good friend recently said that “the first rule of politics is never under estimate the Clintons”.
It is definitely a very accurate statement and should serve as a warning to Republicans nationwide. Despite what those in the liberal media want you to think, Hillary is very beatable. However Republicans need to first pick a great candidate and then unite behind that candidate to be victorious.
The Republicans definitely have some great candidates, with the possible exception of Jeb Bush. With that being said, Republicans also must make sure that the primary promise does not become some long, drawn-out process that hurts the nominee in the general election.
One major advantage the Democrats have is that Hillary is pretty much their woman as she doesn’t really have any major contenders.
While this is great because she’s all the Democrats have, it’s also potentially a curse because it means that she gets a head start with fundraising. It also doesn’t help that she has the liberal media fawning over her.
Although Saturday Night Live didn’t pull too many punches:
Republicans also need to unite behind the candidate who wins the nomination. Many will be upset if it is not that their candidate who wins the nomination. Some will go on rants refusing to vote for the nominee because his “isn’t conservative enough” or even because he is “too conservative,” if someone like Ted Cruz wins.
This kind mentality is self-defeating and will ensure victory for Clinton.
The Republican Primary Season is just getting started, three have announced and more will follow suit in the coming weeks. As the primaries unfold let’s not forget our endgame: defeating Hillary Clinton.
If Republicans can get behind one great candidate quickly without shooting themselves in the foot, Hillary won’t stand a chance.
