While we must continue to fight the bad policies and unconstitutional overreaches of the current administration, it is time for conservatives to start talking to all Americans about how we, as a nation, can lead again at home and abroad.
"I am excited to begin a conversation with conservatives about Governor Bush's pro-life, pro-family, tax-cutting record in Florida and the ideas we need to put into action to give every American a chance to rise up."
Brody called the hire "a big get" for team Bush.
"It provides him with an important evangelical voice that can help trumpet his conservative credentials within the evangelical community," Brody wrote on his "The Brody File" blog
