Saying that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are the two sides in a “war for the heart and soul of the Republican Party,” and thus for the future of America and the world, a candidate for Senate is basing his whole campaign on kicking out the Kentucky Senate majority leader.
“Today I unveil my pledge to America, to fire Mitch McConnell,” says Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, who faces a May 24 GOP primary against Katie Britt and Mike Durant.
“If elected to the Senate, I will not vote for Mitch McConnell for leader, and I will do everything in my power to ensure that Republicans choose a conservative to be leader.
“America cannot afford a Senate leader who is a weak-kneed, debt junkie, open-border RINO Republican, and who, worse yet, sells out America for special interest group cash.”
Brooks’ message appears on a website that lets visitors sign a pledge to “fire McConnell.” In a video on the site Brooks urges Durant and Britt to take the pledge as well.
According to tuscaloosanews.com, Durant recently surged in the race with a massive media buy that lends credence to Brooks’ claim that McConnell is pouring Washington, D.C. money into the race to split up the conservative vote and save his skin:
“All three candidates appear to be well-financed and ready for a three-month battle to the finish line. It will be the most expensive race in Alabama political history. There are barrels of money flowing into the Heart of Dixie, primarily out of the Potomac basin in Washington, D.C.,” reads a February article on tuscaloosanews.com.
