Mid-term elections don’t often favor the President.
But with a White House under siege by a hostile press, members of his own party in Congress, and constant leaks from within the Deep State, 2018 might not be a normal year.
And one #NeverTrump Senator may have just made a huge miscalculation.
Jeff Flake (R-AZ) published a book bashing Trump.
Now, Trump’s allies are beginning to rally around his primary opponent.
The Hill reports:
Key figures from a major pro-Trump group are joining former Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward’s (R) primary campaign against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) — the latest sign that President Trump’s allies are gearing up for a serious push to oust the incumbent.
Eric Beach, the founder and co-chair of Great America PAC, and Brent Lowder, the group’s executive director, will join Ward’s campaign, according to a release obtained by The Hill.
“Eric and Brent are highly accomplished political operatives with strong track records of success,” Ward says in a statement. “They played an important role in the election of President Trump and are now committed to helping me to send Jeff Flake into retirement next year. We are excited to have them join the team and know they will have an immediate positive impact on our campaign.”
That news comes as New York hedge fund billionaire and conservative donor Robert Mercer, a Trump supporter whose family is close with White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, gave $300,000 this week to an outside group supporting Ward’s efforts.
It’s a sign that pro-Trump forces are ramping up their efforts to take down Flake, who has emerged as one of the president’s most vocal critics on Capitol Hill.
The Daily Caller adds:
Ward accused Flake of not only working against the president, but also of ramping up criticism in order to sell copies of his book.
“He puts America last, and I want to put America first,” Ward told TheDCNF in a nod to Trump’s campaign message of “America first.”
Flake, who spent 12 years in the House of Representatives before winning election to the Senate in 2012, opposed Trump’s travel ban, referring to it as a “Muslim ban.” He called it “morally repugnant” and “un-American.”
We’ll see how things play out, but it looks as if 2018 is shaping up to be a bad year for #NeverTrump politicians.
What you don’t understand is the people that voted for Trump are not the loud mouth,protesting nut jobs. They are the ones that go to work everyday making a living for their families, Paying Taxes and keeping this country going. We don’t stand on corners shouting to the top of our voices, or pull down statues, and hurt people. We just sit quitely by and go and vote for the person that we think that will do the best job possible to help our family and our country, and we don’t do polls. So that is the reason why people that we feel will not do the best for our country get voted out. So the next time you shout out and agree with all the trash on the streets.I suggest that you think about what I just said, Because right now we see Congress going with the people that shout the loudest not the everyday voters,and we are many.
Senators tweeting their support of the Republican leader McConnell who wants to restrain the wild impulses of President Trump, i.e. our RINO’s:
Cornyn; Corker, Tillis, Isakson, Collins, Hatch, Gardner, Heller, Flake, Ryan, Young, Capito. These dirty dozen are making sure that the Trump presidency is a failure. The author forgot to list that low-IQ bloviating gasbag McCain in the group., as well as McConnell himself, for a round number of 14.
Paul Ryan has done nothing he promised:
Judge Jeanine Pirro: “Paul Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House.”
Lou Dobbs: “It’s time Paul Ryan remove himself.”
Michelle Malkin called him a “crap weasel.” I’m sure that’s a bad thing.
Rush Limbaugh: “Ryan wants Trump to fail.”
Laura Ingraham: “Paul Ryan is NOT Donald Trump’s friend.”
Ann Coulter: “When Paul Ryan and his Republicans win an election, America loses.”
Republicans had failed to push through the repeal of Obamacare after GOP Sens. John McCain, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski joined Democrats in voting against it. And Huckabee, a Republican, singled out the three senators in another tweet: “CNN reports Democrats will give Lifetime Achievement Award to Murkowski, Collins and McCain. Schumer so happy he cried.”
Remember the names of these seven liars: Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, John McCain,. Lamar Alexander, Dean Heller, Shelly Moore Capito, Rob Portman.
These seven lying liberal senators voted AGAINST repealing Obamacare!!!
Who needs enemies with these RINO’s voting for communism?
THEY HAVE TO KNOW THE PEOPLE ARE THERE BOSSE3S, WE PUT THEM IN WE CAN DAM WELL TAKE THEM OUT. AND ALL THAT ARE NOT BEHIND OUR CHOSE OF PRESIDENT WILL NOT ONLY BE GONE BUT CHANCES ARE THEY WILL BEW TRIED FOR TREASON. THIS IS ENOUGH AND YOU KNOW WHAT ANGRY CAN DO ..IT CAN MAKE A GOOD HONEST PERSON BRING OUT THE WORST IN THEM.
AND THAT I8S WHATN YOU HAVE DONE. WOULDN’T PUT A DOWN Payment on a house if i were you demo’s and republicans traitors. your classified as political whores. starring with Paul Ryan!!!!
this has gone beyond talk.
Flake confirmed for me that he is a flake. Plagiarizing Barry Goldwater was
the final confirmation. Arizona resident since 1947 and don’t live in the same district but will do what I can to help remove him from office.
If I could I’d remove both Flake and McCain from Arizona.
Trump was told (by Peter King)(per RUSH L.) after he got in office that Bummer Care was going to be voted out! Not to worry about it! Believing that he started working on other problems. They SET HIM UP !That’s why he is on Mitch M. GOP SWAMP RATS!
WE CAN HOPE THAT A LOT OF THIS HAPPENS, SO WE START WITH A CLEAN SLATE. ONE THING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IS PEOPLE NEED TO PAT ATTENTION TO WHAT IS GOING ON, NOT JUST LIVE IN A DREAM WORLD, THAT IS WHY WE HAVE ENDED UP WITH THE MESSTHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRYING TO CLEAN UP.
Flake is a sell out. He has spent his entire career representing the “rights and welfare” of illegals in this country, totally ignoring his constituents. He is a Soro’s puppet.
Jeff Flakes son was indicted on animal cruelty charges and was charged with 21 felony counts and seven misdemeanour counts of cruelty to animals. And yet somehow, the charges magically disappeared. Hmmmm
Well the primaries are coming up and I think any rogue Republican should be primary it out. Here’s what you need to watch for I just read an article AGAIN yesterday of an illegal bragging that he voted five times during the 2016 election, and this is not counting all the cheating that I’ve read about for Hillary in this last election, even California had more people voted then they had registered, and this is just one fraction of the country! we have to watch out for the big fix because these Democrats will be conniving and fighting tooth and nail to fix election boxes all over this country along with the help of that old SOB George Soros who should be put to sleep.
Word has it, Trump is serious about voter fraud that put Obama in the White House. Everybody should realize the democraps want and have been successful at ruling America without the American-electorate support. Trump has requested the voter roles for every state to investigate the voter-role irregularities (see long-dead democraps voting today, Tim Kaine’s allowing Virginia’s ex-convicts vote and the illegal-alien voting rolls in California). Naturally the sanctuary cities are not complying and should have federal funds curtailed since rarely these funds are bring used as ear-marked (see New Orleans, LA rerouting ‘Corp of Engineer’ funds on levies before Katerina).
we as Americans needs to stand up and demand justice for america…..WE NEED TO DEMAND OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JEFF SESSION TO ARREST GAY MUSLIM ILLEGAL OBAMA.. AND HILLARY, we all know about their crimes and know how obama is doing all possible to overthrow our government so he can take over rule as a Muslim nation ARE YOU AMERICANS TOO BLIND TO SEE WHAT OBAMA GOAL IS AND WAS FOR 8 YRS? he tried with the Russian lies it failed, now Obama has Mueller looking into president trump private business, if Obama does not get Mueller to indict president trump he will take next step and have him assassinated and if we do not stand up for our america and president trump get ready to live under Muslim rule of sharia laws and islam
The stupid politicians just don’t learn do they.THAT IS WHY WE WILL BE VOTING MOST OF THEM OUT..
THE PEOPLE MADE THE RIGHT CHOSE VOTING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. SO THE PEOPLE WILL MAKE THE RIGHT CHOSE IN REMOVING ALL THE POLITICAL WHORES, LIKE THE PAUL RYAN’S MCCONNELL ETC,ETC. THAT TAKES IN ABOUT 45% OF THE CONGRESS AND 79% OF THE SENATE.
TIRED OF ALL YOU CAREER POLITICIANS IN IT TO FILL YOUR POCKETS AT THE EXPENSE OF HURTING THE PEOPLE THAT PUT YOU IN FORE THE OPPOSET.
BUT YOU FORGOT WE PUT YOU IN WE ARE GOING TO TAKE YOU OUT. NO MORE OF YOUR GAMES.WE NOW HOLD THE WINNING HAND. GAMES OVER.
The fire and fury President Trump speaks of inflicting on pipsqueak North Korea is most welcomed by any American who loves America. North Korea would be well served by heeding those heartfelt words. A red line that means something. I could not be prouder of this man than I am right now. Everyday he makes more and more convinced that I voted for the right candidate. Make no mistake, he is the right man for leader of the free world. He is strong, vigilant and decisive. And someday will be looked upon as one of our greatest Presidents.
Just a McLaim wanna-be espousing his blatant disregard for President Trump and thumbing his nose at his constituents. Flake is definitely an excellent representative of his name. That is the only thing he has represented while being a senator- himself and his ego, which added together equals zero.
flake is a joke some one like him is not honest I really all my life thought only women gossip I sure am learning different men like flake are a disgrace to the whole party please do not vote for him or buy his gossip book THANK YOU ALL
