Organs of the Republican Party establishment, particularly the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), are growing increasingly concerned that the Trump wave in 2020 could usher ‘America First’ candidates into the Senate.
They intend to put considerable resources toward stopping the upstart Senate campaigns of Kris Kobach in Kansas and Judge Roy Moore in Alabama. Kobach has been shut out of the Trump administration after losing a bid for Kansas governor last year, and Moore’s U.S. Senate chances were torpedoed in 2017 after being accused without evidence of sexual improprieties with minors.
“We don’t need to be having any problems, it’s not a state we can stumble in. The map for the majority is OK, but if you have to start diverting resources to Kansas it complicates things,” a GOP establishment operative told The Hill.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is attempting to recruit Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has given many ‘Never Trumpers’ prominent roles in the State Department, to run for U.S. Senate in Kansas to stop Kobach.
“I’m not sure the president agrees with this, that I’d love to see the secretary of State run for the Senate in Kansas. But the filing deadline is not until next June,” McConnell said.
Retiring Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KA), who Kobach is attempting to replace, is also casting doubt on his efforts.
“It seems to me that if you have just lost a statewide race that the chances of you winning, running again for another statewide race would be very difficult,” Roberts said. “Kris Kobach, once he makes up his mind, makes up his mind.”
McConnell has laughed Moore’s campaign off, saying that Alabamians have “seen quite enough of Roy Moore.” Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) is looking into finding more establishment-friendly candidates to run for the seat against Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), the pro-abortion seat filler who defeated Moore in a 2017 special election.
“He’s damaged,” Shelby said of Moore. “He wouldn’t be good for Alabama.”
Moore is hoping that the circus surrounding the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh last year, where the political establishment failed in its attempt to destroy his reputation with false sexual assault accusations, will be a game changer for his race in 2020.
“They don’t want me to take our conservative values to D.C., and they’ll do anything to stop us – including smearing me and all of Alabama with all kinds of falsehoods,” Moore wrote in a recent fundraising e-mail.
It will be an uphill battle for Moore, Kobach, or any immigration patriot to make their way to Washington D.C. in 2020, thanks to the efforts of the GOP establishment putting millions of dollars toward protecting the swamp and containing the Trump phenomenon.
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
