To The Editor:

After alienating blacks, Hispanics, women and whites who were disgusted by voter suppression this past election cycle, maybe a way for the Republican Party to start to make amends would be for them to work with Democrats on immigration reform and also to support statehood for Puerto Rico.

It might help as well to disavow the coarse rhetoric of de facto party leader, Rush Limbaugh.

By the way, Mitt Romney got two million less votes than John McCain. That tells you something.
