Allen Whitt, the long-time president of the West Virginia Family Policy Council, has announced that he will be challenging U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito in the May 2020 Republican primary election.
“I’m running to bring West Virginia values to Washington,” Whitt said in a statement announcing his primary bid. “As a Republican, I campaigned for Shelley Moore Capito in 2014, but conservatives have been let down too many times by her votes and her statements. Her most recent comments on supporting red flag laws simply don’t represent the views of the majority of West Virginians.”
He also stated: “After talking with possible candidates for more than two years, I came to the conclusion that I would be the best individual to challenge the senator for those people who are unhappy with her conservative record.”
Whitt is already receiving negative coverage from the fake news media, which notes the Family Policy Council’s opposition to abortion, same-sex marriage and the LGBT agenda.
“The organization refers to itself as “the leading conservative policy group championing social issues.” They oppose abortion rights and same-sex marriage, and advocate for religious freedom,” West Virginia Public Broadcasting wrote about Whitt’s organization.
“The group’s website also says they occasionally partner with the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a hate group,” they added.
The disgraced SPLC has been maligning the Family Research Council and other Christian groups for years, classifying them alongside the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis as hate organizations:
The FRC often makes false claims about the LGBT community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBT people as the organization battles against same-sex marriage, hate crime laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
To make the case that the LGBT community is a threat to American society, the FRC employs a number of “policy experts” whose “research” has allowed the FRC to be extremely active politically in shaping public debate. Its research fellows and leaders often testify before Congress and appear in the mainstream media. It also works at the grassroots level, conducting outreach to pastors in an effort to “transform the culture.”
Regardless of the left-wing critics, Whitt will maintain his conservative Christian principles while opposing Capito in the U.S. Senate primary election next year.
“That lower court ruling must be overturned or our country and our Constitution are lost. Gender Dysphoria, a mental health diagnosis, must not be elevated to a civil right,” Whitt said on Tuesday outside of the U.S. Supreme Court. They were hearing a case deciding whether or not the 1964 Civil Rights Act pertains to LGBTQ individuals.
The Republican establishment of West Virginia – including West Virginia Republican Party Chairwoman Melody Potter – is already rallying the troops behind Capito.
“She has been our leader in Washington standing up for our conservative West Virginia values. She has also been a strong supporter of President Donald Trump and his agenda to secure our border, grow our economy and put America first,” Potter said in a press release.
“Senator Capito is working hard doing the job West Virginians elected her to do. She is focused on providing President Trump the resources he needs to secure our border and build the wall,” said Kent Gates, a Capito campaign spokesman. “She has also voted for all 152 of President Trump’s judicial nominations and two Supreme Court Justices.”
Whitt hopes to coalesce grassroots conservatives throughout his state behind his primary challenge so the RINO can be removed.
“West Virginia is far more conservative than our only Republican senator, and we deserve better,” Whitt said.
Nancy Pelosi Will Run for Speaker Again If Democrats Hold the House
If appointed again, Crazy Nancy would serve as speaker until 2023.
Everyone’s favorite Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has said she will seek another term as speaker if the Democrats maintain their House majority.
She declared her intention in answering a question from CNN’s Jake Tapper, adding that “we [also] have to win the Senate.”
The USA Today noted that this comes after a challenge by “several members of the Democratic caucus” who represent more conservative constituents and think her speakership is an “impediment to the party’s electoral chances.” Pelosi is also being challenged in the California 12th District race itself by a Pakistani-born “democratic socialist” named Shahid Buttar, whom Pelosi has been doing nothing but ignoring.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also speaking with Jake Tapper, said she would support “the most progressive candidate” for speaker.
“I am committed to making sure that we have the most progressive candidate there. But, if Speaker Pelosi is that most progressive candidate, then I will be supporting her,” she said.
Pelosi has served in the US House since 1987 and is currently in her second stint as speaker. Her first speakership lasted from 2007 to 2011. She struck a deal back in late 2018 to limit her current speakership to four years, so we’ll in all likelihood see her in the post until 2023.
