Former U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette told an Akron crowd Tuesday that the Republican Party is “at a crossroads.”
He said the party must become more moderate and inclusive to have a shot at the White House or a majority in the U.S. Senate.
“If the Republican Party continues on this path to the extreme right, it will become a permanent minority party,” he told the receptive audience of about 80 people at an Akron Press Club luncheon at Quaker Square.
