The co-founder and president of Tea Party Patriots told reporters today she would welcome Sen. David A. Perdue Jr. (R.-Ga.) as a replacement to Senate Majority Leader A. Mitchell “Mitch” McConnell (R.-Ky.) at a Washington press conference, where conservative leaders called on the GOP Senate leadership to resign.
Martin said as a native of Georgia, she was already predisposed to support Perdue.
“One thing that appeals to me about that is the fact that he is a CEO of a Fortune 500 company,” she said. “He knows how to lead. He knows how to make tough decisions and he knows how to execute and to get things done.”
During the 2016 campaign, among senators, Perdue’s support for candidate Donald J. Trump was second only to Attorney General Jefferson B. “Jeff” Sessions, who was a senator from Alabama.
David Bozell, the president of the ForAmerica PAC, also at the press conference, said he would be happy with Perdue leading Senate Republicans.
“Senator Perdue named one of the big elephants in the room, by identifying committee chairmen and chairwomen, who are just bucking the solutions at every opportunity,” he said.
“I’m not sure if that was him sending a bat-signal on his interest, but is on the mark on that—one of the failures of this leadership operation that they are openly being challenged by their own committee chairs,” Bozell said.
The remarks Bozell cited were from a Sept. 26 the senator issued after McConnell announced that he had given up on repealing the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, before the end of the fiscal year 2017.
““What happened today in Washington was a failure,” said Perdue, who led companies, such as Reebok and Dollar General. “Obamacare was perpetrated on the American people by a Democratic supermajority and is collapsing under its own weight.”
Then, he called out three of his senior colleagues.
“From the get-go, three Republican Senate chairmen failed to support our efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare as we have all promised to do,” he said.
“Today, political interests have again outweighed our national interest,” he said.
The three GOP Senate chairs were: Maine’s Sen. Susan M. Collins, Aging Committee; Alaska’s Sen. Lisa A. Murkowski, Energy Committee and Sen. John S. McCain III, Armed Services Committee.
Perdue was elected in 2014 and since coming to Capitol Hill has developed a reputation as one of the rare senators, who has become more conservative the longer he is in Washington.
Whether or not Perdue steps up to challenge McConnell, Martin said she is fully committed to ousting McConnell.
Martin said it was a scandal that the Democrats spent $15 million to save Obamacare, while McConnell and his allies spent an estimated $30 million—not to win a seat—but, to keep a conservative from winning a safe seat in deep red Alabama.
“Mitch McConnell had his chance,” she said. “The entire Senate leadership has had their chance. They have failed to deliver. It is time for Mitch and the leadership to go.”
Joining Martin at the press conference was Brent Bozell, columnist and founder of the Media Research Center; Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks; Ken Cuccinelli II, Senate Conservative Fund and David Bozell, ForAmerica PAC. Conservative stalwart Richard A. Viguerie signed the group letter, but was unable to attend.
The chief complaint against the Republican Senate leadership was its failure to repeal Obamacare, which they called a betrayal.
“President Trump and the House of Representatives have done their part. You sank it,” they wrote.
A representative from Perdue’s office declined to comment to Big League Politics about this story.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
