ROONEY: GOP needs to “claw back the center” on abortion or prepare to keep losing

There’s evidence that the anti-Dobbs backlash helped Democrats in some of last week’s big races particularly with younger voters; there are also results to be found suggesting that Republicans fared better when they tackled the issue head-on rather than permit Democrats’ “extremist” labels to go unanswered.

Rooney also renewed his pre-Election Day criticism of the strategy (or lack thereof) behind Senator Lindsey Graham’s national abortion bill.
