“Herschel is the only one who can unite the party, defeat Senator Warnock, and help us take back the Senate. I look forward to working with Herschel in Washington to get the job done,” McConnell said in a statement to Politico.
Ah yes, the GOP once again unites behind a man with an abusive history who regularly lies about his business prowess. (Walker has repeatedly bragged that his chicken business grossed between $70 million and $80 million annually in sales, but recent court filings suggest profits averaged just $1.5 million a year.)
So this is McConnell’s guy after the GOP leader has maintained for months that his only criteria for Republican candidates is “electability.”
“I personally don’t care what kind of Republican they are, what kind of lane they consider themselves in,” McConnell said. “What I care about is electability,” McConnell told The Wall Street Journal in February.
What a craven cave for the McConnell wing of the party, which is now nothing more than a subservient extension of Trump’s every whim. EINOs: establishment in name only.
