Midterms 2022

Electoral Map Highlights Potential America First Senate Primary Challenges to Establishment Republicans

The 2022 midterms could represent an opportunity for America First candidates to put Conservatism, Inc. to the test.

An electoral map created by political analyst Gabe F. Guidarini shows several states where America First candidates could try to primary neoconservative, establishment, and moderate Republican senators.

“Here is an official targeting map for America First candidates primarying moderate, establishment, and/or neoconservative GOP senators. There are 11 primary opportunities, alongside an open seat that we should run in (PA),” Guidarini tweeted.

The two red states indicate retiring Republican senators. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania will not seek a third term in 2022, nor will Richard Burr of North Carolina. Guidarini placed a yellow “X” over Pennsylvania, however, because an America First candidate might have a decent chance at winning Toomey’s seat. States without that yellow “X,” such as North Carolina, could be too risky for various reasons.

“The map also factors in that some seats might be too risky (in regards to the general election) to run an [America First] candidate in, similar to Kansas in 2018. So some close races shouldn’t be primaried in regardless of how moderate the incumbent is, simply because of how risky the [general election] is,” Guidarini also tweeted.

Kansas and Kentucky, for example, are pink without an “X,” meaning that a GOP senator is up for reelection but that it would be shortsighted and futile to try to run an America First candidate. America Firsters most certainly remember Kris Kobach losing the Republican primary to Roger Marshall earlier in 2020. And suffice it to say that nobody will be able to (or should try to) primary Rand Paul.

Guidarini identifies Sens. Lisa Murkowski (AK), Mike Lee (UT), Tim Scott (SC), Mike Crapo (ID), James Lankford (OK), John Hoeven (ND), John Thune (SD), Richard C. Shelby (AL), John Boozman (AR), Todd Young (IN), and Rob Portman (OH) as the eleven GOP senators who are either neoconservative, establishment, or moderate and who could possibly face a challenge if an America First Republican were to run against them in the primaries.

The America First wing of conservative politics is on the rise and is seeking to play a more significant role on the national stage. As American nationalist Patrick Casey said in his speech at the Stop The Steal rally in Harrisburg, PA, on Saturday: “We have power. We have more power than we presently know. And in order to reclaim that power, we need to send a message to the GOP, and that message is, ‘No, we are not going to vote for you unconditionally. We are by no means going to support people like Dan Crenshaw or Marco Rubio—absolutely not.’ From now on, we will only support America First politicians at every level of government.”

Regardless of how the post-election fight for the presidency and the Georgia Senate runoff go, 2022 will be an important year for America Firsters looking to help mold the GOP into a more nationalistic and socially conservative party.

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
