Perhaps no other person has spent more time within the conservative movement and guided its development than Richard Viguerie. As a pioneer of direct mail fundraising, one of the original founders of Young Americans for Freedom and as prolific political fundraiser, Viguerie has been involved in the conservative movement for over 50 years.
But his experience and involvement within politics has led him to a stunning conclusion.
“Conservatives haven’t had a lot of victories in the last 100 years,” Viguerie told The Daily Caller Friday.
The political fundraiser has a new book coming out, “Takeover: The 100-Year War for the Soul of the GOP and How Conservatives Can Finally Win It,” that argues there’s a civil war going on in the GOP — and conservatives have lost many of the battles.
