Lincoln Project: We're fighting for a better America. A Biden era would be a good start.

Last December, we launched The Lincoln Project with a clear mission: Defeat Donald Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box. Today tens of millions of Americans are making their voices heard. We believe they will repudiate this president and his core beliefs.

Those of us who formed The Lincoln Project had spent much of our professional lives working to elect Republicans. Many in our former tribe have expressed anger and disbelief that we would turn against our own party to take on a sitting president.

In our minds, there was never any other option.

The party we once called home exists now as a corrupted shell of its former self, informed by neither principle nor philosophy. It is a political Chernobyl ó radioactive and dangerous but with a still unknown half-life.


What does a Joe Biden victory this week mean? First, it means a return to competence facing the two biggest challenges of our moment: COVID-19 and the economy. On both, Biden will likely return to the technocratic doctrine of radical competence, and thatís just fine. Ideologues left and right will decry it too little or too much, but the new presidentís first, second and 10th job is to manage this virus and reset this economy.


Don't know what the future holds but I'm really glad we were on the same side as these guys for this particular fight.
