Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), the chairman of the National Senatorial Committee, has had just about enough of Mitch McConnell bashing pro-Trump Republican candidates in races the GOP must win to take the Senate in November.
Breitbart News reports:
“Unfortunately, many of the very people responsible for losing the Senate last cycle are now trying to stop us from winning the majority this time by trash-talking our Republican candidate,” Scott wrote in the Washington Examiner about the establishment uniparty in Washington, DC.
“It’s an amazing act of cowardice, and ultimately, it’s treasonous to the conservative cause,” Scott continued. “Giving anonymous quotes to help the Washington Post or the New York Times write stories trashing Republicans is the same as working with the Democratic National Committee.”
Scott told Politico, “Sen. McConnell and I clearly have a strategic disagreement here … We have great candidates. … And I think it’s important that we’re all cheerleaders for our candidates. … If you trash talk our candidates … you hurt our chances of winning, and you hurt our candidates’ ability to raise money. … I know they’re good candidates, because I’ve been talking to them and they’re working their butts off.”
Scott noted in the Examiner that the “self-appointed ‘smart guys’ in Washington think they (not the voters) should be able to choose our candidates.”
“The D.C. crowd should not choose candidates, and they do not, and they will not,” he added.
