The Republican Party, known as the Party of Lincoln, today conceded the membership and agenda of the party had changed since Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States in 1860. Daniel Chester French's statue of Lincoln, claiming the party attracts "racists, anti-federalists and confederates", refused to show his face Saturday, forcing the the Lincoln Memorial to close until further notice.
