The GOP’s Young Stars Don’t Want to Represent Trump’s Party
The decision of Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) to not seek reelection, in main part because of attacks by twice-impeached, unre-elected former POTUS Trump have made the Ohio Republican fear for the safety of his family, could open the gates to more Republican incumbents choosing to step aside making GOP plans to take over the House more difficult than they had planned on.
"Gonzales is a sterling example of who the Republican Party is sacrificing on the altar of The Donald. Trump's only animating force for interfering in the 2022 primaries is punishing apostates—any party member who suggests that he didn't leave the White House for the warm waters of Mar a Lago voluntarily, or upheld the results of the election he lost or, worst of all, voted for impeachment," Carlson wrote before suggesting, "This is the party of Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan, and the pillow guy who missed last month's deadline to move Trump back into the White House. But it's not just fringe characters joining in Trump's bonfire."
The candidates that Trump is backing are not winning elections - even with gerrymandering.
