Of the Muppet fame, Kermit the frog once said, “it isn’t easy being green.” Well, he should try being red in a city of blue because it isn’t any easier. Vanessa Simon is running for City Council District 31 in Queens, New York. While her district is blue, she is not letting that stop her. She tells the host of “After Dark” that she recognizes the problems facing her district and New York City, and “it breaks her heart to see our city falling apart the way it is.” But there is hope, Simon explains. It is “incumbent upon the GOP to modernize and capitalize upon its messaging” and appeal to the voters with its message of conservatism catered to different communities. She said this could be achieved by uniting the party and going to the local communities, building a solid foundation, and helping them understand conservative views with strategic, actionable pragmatic solutions.
The show ends with a discussion of co-host Andrew’s three-day road trip. He shares his experience traveling across America from Idaho and back to his homestead of Illinois. From this trip, he can surely say there is no place like America.
