Thread: Neoconservative endorsed Martha McSally selected to replace Flake

  1. #1

    Default Neoconservative endorsed Martha McSally selected to replace Flake

    The fix is in. The GOP establishment has selected Rep. Martha McSally to replace Jeff Flake as Arizona Senator. Endorsed by neoconservatives such as John McCain, Bill Kristol and John Bolton, McSally has recently been getting plenty of mainstream media coverage. McConnell's superPAC, the Senate Leadership Fund, funded by neoconservatives such as Sheldon Adelson, is ready to back McSally with as much money as it takes to place her in the Senate. It's the best democracy money can buy...

    McSally turns to Senate Leadership Fund as she prepares for Senate run
    By Brian Schwartz - January 10, 2018

    Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) is on the verge of declaring her candidacy for Jeff Flake’s (R-Ariz.) Senate seat, and she won’t be short of support within the donor ranks, which includes the backing of one the most influential super PACs, the Senate Leadership Fund, FOX Business has learned.

    Officials within the PAC, dedicated to maintaining a Republican majority in the Senate, have privately informed McSally that she will receive their support when she jumps into the race for Flake’s soon-to-be-vacant seat, according to sources familiar with the matter. The CEO of the fund, Steven Law, has personally spoken with McSally and recently told her, “she's the ideal candidate” and he would “definitely back her,”according to a person close to the PAC.
    ...
    During the 2016 election, the PAC spent $83 million on TV ads and $4 million on internet attack ads. The PAC was created in 2015 by supporters of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and is now run by Law, a former chief of staff to the Republican leader. Since its inception the fund has been backed by mega donors such as Blackstone Group CEO Steve Schwarzman, Las Vegas Sands Corporation CEO Sheldon Adelson and Point72 Asset Management Founder Steve Cohen.

    In 2016, Schwarzman and Adelson were some of the funds top donors, with the Blackstone executive contributing more than $2 million and Adelson handing out over $17 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Cohen is the top donor so far this year, giving $2 million to the PAC.

    McConnell has not officially endorsed McSally for Senate, but at his end of the year press conference in December he listed her as a candidate even before an announcement was made.

    "We've got some great candidates out there and you're familiar with them. Martha McSally, Josh Hawley and we hope to land a few more in the coming weeks," he said then.

    It doesn't help that Arpaio is now running in the primary against Dr. Kelli Ward which is sure to split the conservative vote in favor of Mitch's gal. Arpaio is 84 yrs old and should be retiring, even Ingraham and Levin called him out on their respective shows yesterday for this. This is how red states elect rinos.

    Your endorsement is the best reason yet to vote for anyone else.

    Even Arpaio if Ward drops out.

    So you have no problem voting for a neocon shill? She has the same behind the scenes backers and controllers as McCain, Graham and Rubio.

    Does being ex-military and working for a government defense contractor make it necessary to support all MIC candidates?

    sorry,,
    it just popped into my head
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    And who encouraged that guy to run for Senate? I'd guess Democrats, as this follows the McCaskill/Moore playbook.

    Truth is a social construct.
