RNC chair warns: Republicans who refused to back Trump offer 'cautionary tale'

Via Billy


The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee is warning GOP senators to learn from the example of those in President Trump's party who stood up against him and lost at the ballot box.

Ronna Romney McDaniel was speaking specifically Monday on "The Laura Ingraham Show" about Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz) and his reelection chances next year. Flake has spoken out publicly against Trump recently, and McDaniel warned he could face the same fate as former Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.) and former Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), both whom opposed Trump and lost Senate campaigns last year.

“If you look at 2016, the senators that did not support the President … they fell short in those Senate races,” she said. “There is a cautionary tale there because voters want you to support the president in his agenda."

  1. I think many republicans and GOP are in for a shock. The Trump supporters, I talk to, are fairly universal in their feelings. Any republican not supporting Trump, does not get their vote. Might as well have a democrat in the seat, rather than a traitor republican. At least then we eliminate the traitor republican in 2018 and the democrat in 2020. With another Trump win.
