The article presents the author's views on Republicans in the United States with reference to a party thrown by Republicans in Mid-Manhattan, New York. Ritt Rittersporn, president of the Republican Volunteers said that since there is not much left of a Republican Party in Manhattan, and they have only one elected Republican left, the Republicans have been virtually disenfranchised There are less than 100,000 of Republicans here in Manhattan. So, according to Rittersporn, they want to make this party expressive of the few Republicans left.
