I know of two similar examples.
Geert wilders and his party were the first to put on the political agenda the second generation moroccans. Children (sons) of morrocans (invited to netherlands to do jobs locals thought below their standing. Later their wives came over) who adopted the ways of their fathers toward (western) girls.

To regain these votes, the conservatives had to adopt wilders' ideas as its own.
Nigel farage was getting very popular on brexit, costing the conservatives many votes. To regain these votes the conservatives had to adopt nigel's stance on brexit.
Marie le pen became popular on immigration costing...
Barnier, to attract these votes has to adopt...
