Column: What should GOP moderates do?

I make no bones about the fact that I consider myself a centrist, moderate Democrat. When it comes to the country's finances, I don't believe in the pie-in-the-sky schemes of the extreme left-wingers in the party. On social issues, on the other hand, I admit to being pretty liberal, and yet am completely open to finding middle ground with moderate Republicans.

More than six and a half years ago, in January 2012, the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) held a public information meeting regarding a proposed enforceable truck route for the city of Camden and a subsequent "road diet" for Broad Street.
