Chamber of Commerce Strategist Resigns Due to Organization’s Support of Democrats and Refusal to Help Republicans
The chief political strategist for the United States Chamber of Commerce has been forced to resign after the organization endorsed 23 House Democrats in swing Congressional districts across America.
“Scott Reed, who’s been the top political strategist at the US Chamber for years, tells me he has resigned, amid a perceived drift to the left at the Chamber on heels of nearly two dozen endorsements of House Dems,” Maggie Haberman of the New York Times announced in a Twitter post.
According to Breitbart News, Reed had to resign because of the Chamber’s horrible decisions in recent months. Reed reportedly wanted to use Chamber resources to support vulnerable Republican senators such as Joni Ernst (R-IA), Martha McSally (R-AZ), and Thom Tillis (R-NC) but was ultimately overruled by Chamber executives.
Even establishment Republican operatives are dismayed and disgusted at the Chamber’s betrayal of the GOP with Trump as the standard bearer for the party.
“Scott Reed is the Michael Jordan of Republican operatives — the greatest of all time,” long-time lobbyist and GOP operative Sammy Geduldig said.
“It’s been difficult to watch what was once the gold standard for influence and advocacy slowly decline over the last few years and now it appears the last vestige of relevance has just walked out the door,” National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Executive Director Kevin McLaughlin said to Breitbart News with regards to Reed’s resignation.
The Chamber is far from the only organization that has fallen hard during the Trump presidency. Big League Politics has reported on the Koch network stabbing conservative Americans in their backs to protect their globalist profit margins:
The Koch Brothers were once considered some of the most powerful interests behind the Republican Party, but that is changing because President Donald Trump is not for sale. They are planning to put their considerable resources behind Democratic contenders in 2020.
The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is revamping its operation for next year’s election cycle, prioritizing amnesty for illegals, opposition to tariffs, and support for open borders above all else.
“We expect policymakers to unite people and build coalitions. We’re committed to forging a new way forward with political discourse,” said Emily Seidel, CEO of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re excited for how this new approach will help policymakers work together.”
Instead of Republican victory, the Koch network is now focused on a plan to “elevate civil discourse” which, of course, means returning to the status quo before Trump started regularly calling out the Washington D.C. swamp with gusto.
“If candidates engage in personal, ad hominem attacks and other divisive tactics during their election, it makes it difficult for them to work productively with others after the election,” Seidel wrote in a recent memo to AFP staff and activists.
“One of the biggest challenges to this approach is that those who work to lead nonpartisan coalitions are threatened by people in both parties who prize partisanship over policy outcomes. This makes it difficult for policymakers who want to do what’s best for the country to stick their necks out,” she added.
AFP plans to start the following PACs in upcoming weeks: Uniting for Economic Opportunity, Uniting for Free Expression, Uniting for Free Trade, and Uniting for Immigration Reform. These entities will directly challenge Trump’s ‘America First’ mandate, and make it harder for him to win re-election in 2020.
The Koch network had previously announced in January that it intends to provide no support for Trump’s re-election campaign next year.
President Trump has forced all of the impostor groups, like the Chamber and Americans for Prosperity, to smoke themselves out as enemies of the Republic. They must be blackballed permanently from the American Right as the consequence for their disloyal and treasonous activity.
