Yesterday, an article I wrote for Take it to the Hill was published. I describe the change in the conservative world that I have witnessed in the past year, and the conservative world’s willingness to discuss the failures of the death penalty. Additionally, it has become evident that the conservative world is increasingly considering criminal justice reform, which can open the door to cooperating with new constituencies. I said, The moral, pragmatic, and philosophical conservative objections to the many criminal justice problems can provide common ground with those who feel most strongly affected by today’s criminal justice system, constituencies of color and the impoverished. Conservatives can work together with these constituencies to achieve common sense solutions for an issue that affects us all.
