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

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.
