Revolver News exposed that Mitch McConnell is trying to get Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to run for senate in Arizona.
This is another example of Mitch McConnell trying to get his candidates to run so he can maintain his control over the GOP.
Doug Ducey failed to stop the 2020 election steal in Arizona–even after an audit exposed massive issues with the election in Arizona.
Right now, though, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to sabotage this transformation by urging Governor Doug Ducey to enter the race, and the only obstacle to his plans is Ducey’s wife.
According to a source close to both Ducey and McConnell, Angela Ducey is eager to be out of the political spotlight, and has become irate with McConnell’s constant pleas for her husband to enter the race. Besides the usual difficulties that come with being a politician’s spouse, the past year has been particularly rough for Angela as her husband has been savaged from the right for his role in certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 victory in the state.
But apparently, McConnell thinks nothing of putting the hurt on the Ducey marriage for the sake of sticking a metaphorical thumb in Donald Trump’s eye.
McConnell’s motivation is simple: He doesn’t like Donald Trump, and doesn’t like the direction Trump has taken the Republican Party. But he also can’t oppose Trump openly, and is instead stuck trying to wait out the president while elevating candidates who are loyal to the old GOP rather than the new one. For McConnell, Ducey is an enticing pawn in this proxy war.
The stakes are high. With the Senate split 50/50 between Republicans and Democrats, the Grand Canyon State offers the most likely opportunity for the GOP to pick up a seat and, with it, take control of the chamber. That means more than just offering a symbolic rebuke to the Biden Administration. It means the opportunity to hold up extremist nominees to the federal courts, or even the Supreme Court. It means blocking the installation of ideologues like Gigi Sohn onto crucial regulatory bodies like the FCC. It means blocking President Biden’s plan to eliminate the filibuster in order to rewrite election laws in all fifty states. In turn, it means blocking more ambitious Democratic plans like packing the Supreme Court, admitting D.C. and Puerto Rico as states, abolishing the Electoral College, and giving amnesty to the two million illegal immigrants who swamped the border last year, plus the ten or twenty or thirty million other illegal immigrants already squatting in this country.
Trump has officially responded:
President Donald J. Trump:
"Rumors are that Doug Ducey, the weak RINO Governor from Arizona, is being pushed by Old Crow Mitch McConnell to run for the U.S. Senate. He will never have my endorsement or the support of MAGA Nation!" pic.twitter.com/sYtkpRK6Mr
