Cory Gardner, Mitch McConnell, NRSC, Chamber Donors May Squander Another $50 Million Against Republicans in 2020

Published

The NRSC squandered almost $50 million under Corey Gardner’s leadership, neglected to support embattled Repubuplican Judge Roy Moore in Alabama’s Special Republican Primary, and shunned vulnerable GOP candidates in the Arizona and Nevada 2018 General Elections, and may be poised to do so again, according to reports.
Voters in Republican battleground states are increasingly encountering a new reality: their own party is fighting against its own candidates, and even bragging about sabotaging Republican ballot contenders in favor of Democrats.
The unprecedented and politically uncharacteristic bravado are manifest in the comments of Cory Gardner — recent head of the GOP’s Senate campaign fundraising arm — only a day after Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore was falsely accused of “sexual misconduct” by confirmed liar and flusey Leigh Corfman.
“The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling. If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election,” NRSC Chairman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said in a statement.
Amazingly, Gardner then directed the NRSC to sever its fundraising agreement with Moore only one day after the unsupported, totally disproven and politically-motivated allegations were published in the Washington Post.

But the NRSC is not the only establishment Republican organization betraying Republican voters and their choice at the ballot box.

During the Alabama Senate Primary in 2017, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and disgraced GOP strategist Karl Rove, also undermined Moore — who ultimately won the primary anyway. Rove was twice-wrong in his election calls , 2012 and 2016.

The NRSC ran attack ads and a McConnell-backed super-PAC spent millions portraying Moore as “unfit for the Senate.” McConnell’s super PAC spent $8 million to boost Republican incumbent Sen. Luther Strange. McConnell also directed the NRSC to threaten consultants they’ll be cut off from future work if they Moore supporters, and the Senator’s top political lieutenants advised Strange’s campaign, too — a move reported to be “highly unusual.”

The NRSC is now on record de facto endorsing Alabama Democrat Doug Jones, who is covering up actual, documented criminal fraud against the voters of the state of Alabama perpetrated by Democratic Party-funded allies under the monicker, “Project Birmingham.” SEE OUR PREVIOUS BOMBSHELL STORY ON PROJECT BIRMINGHAM.

“ABRM, anyone but Roy Moore,” said Kevin McLaughlin, the NRSC’s executive director. “The only thing Doug Jones and I agree on is that his only prayer for electoral success in 2020 is a rematch with Roy Moore,” McLaughlin said, announcing his intent to throw GOP candidates in the fire for a Democratic incumbent.

Josh Holmes, McConnell’s former chief of staff, blasted Moore and former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, told The New York Times,

This is what happens when you let reckless, incompetent idiots like Steve Bannon go out and recruit candidates who have absolutely no business running for the U.S. Senate.

Nevada and Arizona are also battleground states where Republican ballot choices are under attack — by Republican leadership.

Kelli Ward (Arizona), Chris McDaniel (Missouri) and Danny Tarkanian (Nevada) are the jewels in Steve Bannon’s counter-insurgency crown, with the former Trump White House adviser vowing to wage political war against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

McConnell’s allies are threatening that anyone who runs on the GOP ticket and aligns with Bannon will be shut down.

“Steve Bannon is toxic, and we saw that in Alabama,” said Chris Pack, spokesman for Senate Leadership Fund, “Candidates that are drawn into Bannon’s universe will now have to answer for Bannon’s baggage, like supporting an accused child molester.”

Tarkanian wasn’t phased, saying, “Mitch McConnell’s argument is we need to support a guy like Dean Heller, who will do what’s politically expedient for himself over what’s best for our country because he has a better chance of being elected than I do.”

“I think that is why people are sick and tired of politicians.” he continued.

Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.

Published

If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
