The Democrats headed to South Carolina recently, and there could be something strangely familiar going on, with Joe Biden in the role of 2008 Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris in the role of 2008 Barack Obama. Plus, will all the craziness in Washington cause any South Carolina Republicans to lose faith in President Trump? A visit with Katon Dawson, former chair of the South Carolina GOP.

    Great interview as usual. I too think that K Harris will end up being the Democrat candidate. She’s a female B Obama in many ways although she has a lot more baggage than he had. I wonder if people will make her who they want her to be as much as they did with Obama? That was a great advantage he had.

    For hardcore politicos, it was pure pleasure to listen to Dawson’s views on elections made possible by the best interviewer in America. Thank you Byron.

    I was very impressed by Dawson’s take on the entire electoral process, and then at the end he revealed a lot of retained GOPe establishment thinking. He regrets the “angry” tone.

    But only 90 seconds earlier Dawson, you mentioned how certain you were that nice guy Mitt Romney was going to win in 2012. Trump’s – and his voters’ – attitude isn’t “angry” per se, it’s fighting back by the (lack of) rules set by the Dems. Mitt got derailed in the second debate by a fake news moderator, and nice guy Mitt didn’t even fight back a week later, much less during the debate.

    As Victor Davis Hanson has said countless times, Trump is wise not to fight by the Marquess of Queensbury rules, rules that the Dems abandoned decades ago.
