What a joke.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced that he will support Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) during her reelection bid.
Senator Lisa Murkowski voted to impeach Trump.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell committed on Monday that Senate Republicans will support GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s reelection bid in 2022 despite former President Donald Trump advocating that the GOP “get rid of” the 17 Republicans in Congress who voted against him during his second impeachment.
Of the seven Senate Republicans who voted to convict Trump of inciting a deadly riot at the Capitol on January 6, Alaska’s Murkowski is the only one facing voters in the midterm election next year in a state Trump won by about 10 points last year.
“Absolutely,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, replied when asked by CNN if the National Republican Senatorial Committee would back Murkowski even after Trump extolled to the Conservative Political Action Conference his desire for political revenge against his critics.
Asked if he was worried the former President’s considerable influence could make it harder for Murkowski to win reelection, McConnell responded firmly: “No.”
This is a huge moment.
Trump told us this party belongs to those who believe in the MAGA agenda.
During his speech at CPAC he railed against those who voted to impeach him:
Murkowski needs to be primaried.
Trump can not let McConnell push him around. We know from the last four years that the corrupt establishment uses certain weak advisers they put around Trump and lies to try and get him to support them.
Luckily, Trump has great instincts and many good advisers around him.
All Trump needs to remember is one thing.
McConnell’s poll numbers are in the tank:
Almost no-one supports him at this point. If Trump endorses a strong primary candidate they will win.
Keep your promise! Vet a great candidate to take on Murkowski!
