In a speech to corporate security executives on Monday, May 4, former Secretary of State Colin Powell admitted that the Republican Party is in big trouble and needs to find a way to move its focus back to Middle America, according to AJC.com. Powell explained that the GOP must evolve with the changes exemplified in our country.
Powell also threw a few jabs at fellow Republicans radio host Rush Limbaugh and political talking head Ann Coulter, saying that they are not serving the party well.
Many might remember that Powell made headlines last year when he supported President Obama over Senator John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.—WLW
