In a recent post for the blog, “The Fix,” the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake commented on Mark Riddle’s lament of the liberals’ “depth problem” noting by comparison how conservatives’ long-term investment plan for the leaders of tomorrow will pay off:
For more than 60 years, the conservative movement has heavily invested in building an organized and long-term pipeline to turn promising young leaders into election-winning candidates. They have done this through groups like the Leadership Institute, GOPAC and the Heritage Foundation, and they have invested countless millions of dollars in this effort….
Conservatives run their training and leadership development operations like a blue-chip business on the NYSE, reliably paying steady dividends.
Heritage’s Young Leaders Program helps guide young conservatives as they start their careers. This program has proven impact, in fact two former Heritage interns were elected to Congress in 2012.
Do you think investing in young people is the right way to ensure conservative principles prevail?
