President Donald Trump’ s reelection efforts in 2020 and beyond received a significant boost Tuesday with the announcement of the Lincoln Project, a new anti-Trump super PAC started by a group of failed Republican strategists and George Conway, a spouse of middling renown.
The brain trust powering the Lincoln Project includes Steve Schmidt, who worked on the late senator JohnMcCain’s (R., Ariz.) failed presidential campaign in 2008; John Weaver, former chief strategist for failed presidential candidate John Kasich; Rick Wilson, a “digital assassin” who regularly posts on the popular social networking website Twitter; and KellyanneConway’s husband. The project was originally named “Rough Riders for America” federal election records show.
The peculiar quartet announced its new endeavor in a New York Times op-ed of prohibitive length. The super PAC will pursue a “common effor” with national Democrats driven by a “shared fidelity to the Constitution,” says the op-ed. The goal is to save the soul of America by “defeating President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box.”
The Lincoln Project will endeavor to “ensure a victory in the Electoral College” for the Democratic nominee and seek to install “congressional majorities that don’t enable or abet Mr.Trump’s violations of the Constitution, even if that means Democratic control of the Senate and an expanded Democratic majority in the House” [emphasis added]
