Chris Christie on the NRA

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

Here are some words from Chris Christie that will probably hearten conservative moderates. I don't think this means much for 2016, however. The core of the Republican Party is Southern white populism. There's no real way around that. Leadership might talk of moderation, but they didn't build a party for moderation. The occasional act of heterodoxy can't change that.
