Excerpt from The Resurgent
By Erick Erickson
Just four years ago, the Republican nominee for President, Mitt Romney, was roundly mocked by the political left for suggesting Russia was a threat to the United States. Even then the Russians were beginning systematic attempts at undermining western democracies.
Four years later, the Republicans should not reject the position they once defended just because partisans on the left have flipped their position.
This campaign season it was abundantly obvious and well documented that the Russians were trying to use social media accounts, etc. to undermine American faith in our system of elections.
