Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared he would not entertain nominating any non-traditional Mainstream Republican candidates in the 2016 election cycle and cautioned voters they are to follow his example.
The message was clear from one of the most powerful Republicans in the nation – the entirety of the GOP Machine is ready and willing to go to war with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and any other Republican candidate who doesn’t conform to Mr. McConnell’s version of an “acceptable” Republican.
“We will not nominate anybody for the United States Senate on the Republican side who’s not appealing to a general-election audience.”
So went McConnell’s mandate this past week as he shared his thoughts on the upcoming 2016 election cycle. He then became even more specific regarding his feelings on presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz:
“We’d like to have a nominee who can carry purple states because unless the nominee for president can carry purple states, he’s not going to get elected.”
The Senate Majority Leader didn’t elaborate on who the “WE” he was referring to. He is certainly wanting to ensure he maintains his position as Majority Leader and likely fears that if 2016 gives America a President Trump or a President Cruz, even if Republicans maintain a majority in the Senate that leadership position might still be in danger.
McConnell, Can go stick it.
I don't work for mitch aka obam's bitch
LOL..I like that Mitch the Bitch..and yes he can go shove his head up his traitorous ass
This two party system has got to go... Both are owned by the corporations
Should be cartoon logo with each the donkey and elephant take turns ******* the AMERICAN VOTE up the ASS!!!!
This lying SOB has sold us out more time that I can count and he objects to a REAL conservative. Mitch Obamy's bitch has a lot of gaul. The lousy leadership in the GOP is still intact even after getting rid to the useless BONER. and Ryan has shown that he is as useless as his daddy the "BONER."
McConnell is Obamys bit*h. As for Ryan we expected it when he was elected by Democraps
Mitch McConnell needs to be gone.
Who the hell does Mitch McConnell think he is???? He needs to be voted into retirement, soon. So far he has been a big FAILURE, just another one of obamas butt buddy's. He is way out of touch with the American people, just another reason for term limits for all, including the Supreme Court.
Mitch and his cronies (and there are a lot of them) are telling us that they are governing without our participation or approval, so we had better get used to it. I see this as a chllenge to the GOP base.....basically "get lost".
Mitch McConnell really deserves a solid beating! In fact, he's way overdue.
