Skip to comments.After Alabama, GOP anti-establishment wing declares all-out war in 2018
Posted on 09/26/2017 9:06:52 PM PDT by EliRoom8
The stunning defeat of President Trumps chosen Senate candidate in Alabama on Tuesday amounted to a political lightning strike setting the stage for a worsening Republican civil war that could have profound effects on next years midterm elections and undermine Trumps clout with his core voters.
It marked yet another humiliation for the Washington-based Republican establishment, particularly Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), whose allies pumped millions of dollars into the race to prop up Strange and reassure his colleagues that they could survive the Trump era.
If youre an incumbent, you have to assume the wind is against you, said consultant Tom Ingram, a longtime Corker adviser. If you do run, you take nothing for granted and leave nothing on the table. You start out with one big strike against you: Youre an incumbent Republican senator.

LOL! The Washington Post seems happy Judge Roy Moore won!
We need new Republicans.
The ones we have only want to amnesty illegal aliens.
I’m sure this story will be treated like holy gospel, because it more or less buttresses a lot of people’s currently favorite narrative — despite the fact that it’s written by a liberal, morally vile, msnbc dwelling scumbag like robert costa, who revels in fomenting dissent among his political enemies.
I suspect we’ll fall for this hook, line, and sinker — rod, reel, and bass boat.
In unison, the media will paint this as a defeat for the President, demonstrating how unpopular he is.
OTOH this could be just the medicine to heal our “civil war”.
RINOs *can* now tell their globalist donors to compromise with the voters. If they do all *can* be well.
I hope the R establishment makes that choice.
These clowns still don’t get it. Do they not realize that supporters of Trump don’t march in lockstep with everything he does?
Not to mention, they are constipated (can’t pass s#it!)
People everywhere are outraged with the swamp, but there has been hesitation in some states among people who are thinking about it. They wondered whether these senators can be beat. This changes all of that, said Danny Tarkanian, a GOP businessman running against Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.).
Pure unadulterated propaganda BS from the ultimate source of such BS.
It seems as the only ones surprised that Moore won, were in the Washington Post.
Well they have to be pretty dim to think Trump is unpopular in ALABAMA of all places.
POTUS I think made a deal to back Mitch’s boy in order for some stuff moving through the senate. Well we know that is never going to happen anyway because MM is a joke and a swamp monster.
POTUS will be happier with Moore in the long run.
One suspects that it's the shadowy sponsors who run the much of the "show".
We need to know the identity of all (ALL) these fungi, so informed ballots might be cast.
Trump’s support for Strange was only for show.
Are you implying—indeed insinuating—that all “fungi” are deleterious? I hope not.
