Unpacking suburban Republicanism

Fred Barnes calls our attention to Rep. Mark Kirk’s efforts to defend and rebuild waning Republican strength in close-in suburbs. I’m not convinced that the issues that he’s identified are sufficiently salient to overcome "image problems" the Republican Party has with the professionals who increasingly populate what Kirk calls the "inurbs" (as opposed to the exurbs). If you want to read more about Kirk’s efforts, go here and here.

The Fred Barnes link doesn’t work. It opened to the Claremont page with an article by Terrence Moore. Thought you’d like to know.

Thanks. I fixed it.
