Christie: GOP No Longer Big Tent

NIC Trustee Christie Wood (re: Election results disappoint Reagan Republican): It has been illustrated quite well in this election that the GOP is no longer the big tent. They have become a party of exclusion rather than inclusion and that is why I changed my affiliation to Independent. I remember Jeff’s statements in the past on this blog warning me about who I affiliate with.

He simply does not understand higher education, and accreditation standards. More here.
