Yesterday’s primaries once again proved that the Republican Party is in chaos and has fully surrendered to MAGA extremists. The MAGA agenda includes raising taxes on the American people, ending the Social Security and Medicare guarantees, and banning abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Across the country, Republican primary winners have shown how extreme they are, making clear the GOP is now the MAGA Republican Party.
Washington Post: “Flores, who out-fundraised her three opponents in the race…ran on a platform supporting gun rights and an end to abortion access. She has already won the primary for the full two-year term on the seat in November, when she will face Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D).”
USA Today: “LaPage, an outspoken conservative who has made offensive remarks about gay people, abortion and racial minorities, won gubernatorial races in 2010 and 2014.”
Washington Post: “More than 100 GOP primary winners back Trump’s false fraud claims”
Loyalty to defeated former President Donald Trump continues to throw the GOP into complete chaos.
Washington Post: “Republicans collide in key primaries as Trump’s pull tested in S.C., Nev.”
Washington Post: “Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.), a reliable conservative who shocked his colleagues last year by voting to impeach Trump, lost his primary on Tuesday in a blowout to state Rep. Russell Fry, whom Trump sought revenge by endorsing. Fry avoided a runoff by winning 51 percent of the vote, far ahead of Rice’s 25 percent.”
