“Q: Given demographic shifts, immigration trends, white evangelicals’ end-times rhetoric, and Republicans’ siege, grievance mentality, was something like Donald Trump inevitable?

A: Yes.

Q: Is it in the past or is it still the future?

A: I don’t know.”

Our guest for episode #292 is former Republican campaign operative and fundraiser, Gretchen Purser.

Raised a conservative Baptist in Oklahoma, Gretchen retired in 2009 from a 20 year career in politics, raising over a billion dollars for the Republican Party, candidates, and causes. She worked for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Christian Coalition during the 1996 Presidential Campaign, the President’s Dinner, George W Bush’s Inaugural. As an RNC consultant and finance director, Gretchen oversaw the McCain Victory finance team as well as the Bush finance team in the 2008 campaign.

Donald Trump’s Republican Party is NOT her party nor is it the Pro Life, Character Counts, Christian Values party for which she worked for two decades, and she’s back on the podcast to share her reactions to Election Day, the Insurrection, the Post-Trump (?) Republican Party, and what it means for Christians in America.
