GOP Establishment Sets Up ‘Us vs. Trump’ In 2022: ‘We Support All Of Our Incumbents’

Establishment Republicans are continuing to attempt to discredit former President Donald Trump.

On Sunday during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), was asked by Chuck Todd if the committee would support the reelection of senators like Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, whose challenger in next year’s primary has already been endorsed by Trump.

Scott’s response was interesting to say the least, and can really only be taken one way.

The message is clear

Scott was clear in his message, saying,

“Absolutely. … We support all of our incumbents. And fortunately for us, we’ve got great candidates running in our primaries. And fortunately for us, we’ve got Bernie Sanders candidates on the other side in many primaries, and so we’re going to be in a great position in ‘22.”

You are a person who wants to change the status quo. If so, you will be disqualified. 

And, if you happen to have gotten an early endorsement from Donald Trump, doesn’t matter.

The GOP establishment will be supporting incumbents – even ones like Murkowski who voted to convict President Trump in sham impeachment schemes.

Once again, we’re looking at the establishment versus Donald Trump.

The Swamp Protection Racket

The rise of a political novice like Donald Trump is something that certainly Democrats do not understand, and but for a few exceptions, Republicans don’t either.

The NRSC’s job is to protect all those who are able to get into the club regardless of how disastrous they may be. 

Scott made sure not to criticize Trump’s endorsement. But now the establishment GOP are feeling their oats after Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia, where he accepted a Trump endorsement, but Trump was never anywhere near Virginia.

Another member of “the club” who said the quiet part out loud is Trump critic and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

During a CNN “State of the Union” appearance, Hogan described any Trump involvement this way:

“I’m concerned about it. It’s obviously an issue to contend with. And if the former president interferes with primaries and tries to help nominate folks that are unelectable in a general election in, say, swing districts and purple states, that’s going to hurt.”

InterferesIs it possible to make a quick policy change? It is entirely possible there could have been some quickie policy change, but didn’t Donald Trump become a private citizen, free to support the candidates of his choice the minute Joe Biden became president?

These Battle Lines Are Now Drawn

The Republican Party has a problem here. Trump is being pushed to the forefront by establishment Republicans. However, they also realize that the overwhelming majority of Republican base supports Trump. 

Lisa Murkowski was one of seven Republican senators that voted for Trump’s impeachment. Trump endorsed Kelly Tshibaka as her primary opponent. Murkowski is ranked second in the Senate for casting the least votes against her party. However, she is sure to get the support and endorsement of the NRSC. 

Anyone challenging an incumbent Republican Republican should be aware that your support will not come from the Republican Party, but rather from ordinary Americans, who are more likely to support Donald Trump than the Republican Party.
