Swamp creatures have been scheming to derail Donald Trump’s agenda since the minute he took office.
One of the ring leaders was Pennsylvania’s RINO Congressman Charlie Dent.
But after getting the worst news of his life, Dent ended his political career.
Dent was a leader of the RINO “Tuesday Group.”
These are left-wing Republicans who agree with the Democrats on everything and fight conservatives and Donald Trump at every turn.
Dent was one of the ring leaders of the fight by liberal Republicans to kill any effort to completely repeal Obamacare.
And he opposes Trump’s border wall.
So over 100 Trump supporters held a rally in his district where they threatened to support a primary challenger if he didn’t fall in line with Trump’s agenda.
Dent took stock of the situation and folded his cards and announced his retirement.
“I’ve worked to instill stability, certainty, and predictability in Washington,” Dent said in a statement. “I’ve fought to fulfill the basic functions of government, like keeping the lights on and preventing default. Regrettably, that has not been easy given the disruptive outside influences that profit from increased polarization and ideological rigidity that leads to dysfunction, disorder and chaos.”
“But I have also had a stake in major legislative accomplishments: budget agreements that prioritize our federal commitments, pro-growth trade, and tax policy, initiatives to advance medical innovation and research, major infrastructure investments, and policies that secure our homeland.”
The decision comes after State Rep. Justin Simmons, who spoke at this week’s “No Surrender” rally, confirmed he would challenge Dent in a primary, branding him “the most liberal Republican in Congress.”
“I guess the polling must have been really bad. Can’t say we were expecting this,” Simmons said on hearing the news. “I think right now we could say, ‘Mission Accomplished.’ We wanted to make sure we got a more conservative candidate in the seat, and now we can do that.”
Dent’s leaving is a serious blow to The Swamp.
Now the fight is on to replace him with a representative who will stand by conservative principles and fight for the Make America Great Again Agenda.
