Exclusive: Virginia outsider for Senate Corey Stewart tells BLP why he’ll beat Sen. Tim Kaine

Published

The outsider conservative running for the GOP nomination in Virginia’s 2018 Senate primary told Big League Politics voters are tired of the establishment during an exclusive interview at the Washington’s Trump International hotel.

“People are tired of the disconnected, out-of-touch, establishment on the left and the right,” said Corey A. Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors looking to challenge Sen. Timothy M. Kaine (D.-Va.).

Voters are well aware that Kaine is not one of them, he said.

“They know that Tim Kaine doesn’t really represent the average guy,” he said. “He’s in tight with Antifa. He won’t condemn them—his son is a member of Antifa.” The senator’s son Linwood M. “Woody” Kaine was arrested at an Antifa protest at the Minnesota state house in Minnapolis—after fleeing from law enforcement officers and struggling with them, so that they had to knock down the masked media studies major be cuffed.

The native of Minnesota said he has written off any hope of support from the National Republican Senate Committee or any of the other committees that the Republican Party uses oppose conservatives.

“Everyone knows the Republican establishment will say some things in public that are negative towards the Democrats, then right after they’re done, they’re on the golf course playing a round of golf with the people they just condemned,” he said.

When he announced his candidacy in July, Stewart promised a vicious campaign against Kaine:

As an obedient servant to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, Tim Kaine is the leading obstructionist against Trump’s America First agenda,” Stewart opened. “Virginians and citizens across the country need a fighter representing them in D.C. who will stand up to and defeat the smug Washington elites.

This last election proved that Virginians want a fighter who will stand for them. The era of the kinder, gentler Republican is over.

Stewart was at the Trump hotel to join other Trump supporters at Tuesday’s MAGA Meetup.

“I know I have to win this thing on my own,” he told BLP.  “I am not cutting any deals and I am running a completely different campaign, based on what I know it right.”

In the 2017 GOP gubernatorial primary Stewart lost to Edward W. Gillespie by just more than 15,000 votes out of roughly 365,000 votes cast. The close finish was a surprise and the momentum from his strong showing led to the attorney’s decision to take on Kaine in 2018.

Stewart said a huge frustration have with Kaine is he unwavering support of President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.

“He thinks that health care in America is just fine and that Obamacare is working—what he doesn’t realize is that it has caused a lot of people to drop their health care insurance.”

Obamacare reform has become non-partisan for regular Americans, he said.

“People are being priced out of their health insurance,” said the man who was also the manager of President Donald J. Trump’s campaign in the commonwealth.

“There are many voters, who voted for both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who assumed something would be done to fix it and they are disappointed that it has not been fixed, yet,” Stewart said.

“They are not blaming the president,” he said.

“They know he has been trying. They are blaming Mitch McConnell and the rest of the establishment.”

WATCH: Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez Slams Israel, Forced to Admit She’s Clueless

Published

A socialist candidate for U.S. Congress from New York looked foolish during a PBS interview in which she was forced to admit that she is clueless regarding the conflict between Arabs and Israelis.

“I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition,” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”

Kudos to the interviewer, who continued to push regarding Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “occupation of Palestine,” one rarely used outside of small circles of white liberals on college campuses.

“Oh, um… I think what I meant is, like, the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas, in places where, um, Palestinians are experiencing, um, difficulty and access to their housing and homes,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

When asked to expound a bit more, and Ocasio-Cortez threw in the towel.

“Yeah, I think I’d also just… I’m not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” she said.

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez ended the cringeworthy segment back where she started, with the general policy proposal of a “two state solution” to the conflict.

With her lack of expertise, she should fit right in in Congress.
