A TALE OF TWO PLATFORMS (Senator Doug Whitsett)
Both the Democrat and Republican parties adopted their platforms during conventions held earlier this summer. Those platforms reveal a great deal regarding the agendas and priorities of each political party. They represent a roadmap of how each party plans to govern if they are elected.
The obvious contrast between the parties is spelled out in their platforms. Voters would be wise to educate themselves on those differences when considering which candidates to support in November’s general election.
