As the midterm election battle heats up, establishment Republicans appear to have problems, and not former President Donald Trump. At least not quite.
Other Republicans have no problem confronting them (many of whom are related to Donald Trump.)
The latest example is Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL). Scott also heads the National Republican Senate Committee, the Republican Senate campaign arm.
Scott is not satisfied Some comments made last month Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
There must be something worse than RINO to call McConnell.
He’s not even a nominal Republican.
In fact, he’s not a Republican at all, but an angry, bitter old man who would rather bring the party down than sprint to victory.https://t.co/fk5QFxCRDw

Mitch McConnell at Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Luncheon when he was asked about the possibility Republicans took over the Senate in November.
McConnell said the House is more likely to be taken over by Republicans than the Senate. But it was this knock on the door of the candidate chosen by Republican voters that caused some outrage: “The races in the Senate are just different, they’re statewide. The quality of the candidates has a lot to do with the outcome.”
In response, Scott said he and McConnell had “strategic differences” on the matter.
In an interview with Politico, Scott said:
“We have great candidates. He wants to do what I want to do: I want to get a majority. I think it’s important that we are both candidates’ cheerleaders. If you swear at our candidates…you will By hurting our chances of winning, you also hurt our candidates’ ability to raise money. I know they’re good candidates because I’ve been talking to them and they’re working hard.”
Scott added that negative rhetoric about Republican candidates “wasn’t productive.”

Trump also responded
Donald Trump on McConnell’s comments also have some ideas The leader of Senate Republican candidates, many of whom happen to have Trump’s backing.
This is the latest episode of the ongoing feud between Trump and McConnell. Their back-and-forth often speaks to the growing pains the party is going through. The old guard agency type that’s been in Washington D.C. who don’t want to fight the Democrats on anything, and a new generation of serious Republicans who can go up against the Democrats and win without a problem.
“Why did Republican senators allow a crumbling hacker-politician, Mitch McConnell, to publicly disparage the hard-working Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate? It’s an insult to honor and leadership,” Trump said.
Earlier in the same week, Trump Call on Republicans to immediately oust McConnell. He called McConnell a “Democratic pawn.” The second statement on the truth society was in response to a Federalist report that claimed McConnell and his wife, former Trump transportation secretary Xiaolan Chao, “spent decades of getting rich in China. “.
Trump also said of the McConnells, “Democrats have Mitch McConnell and his lovely wife Elaine ‘Coco’ Chao on a bucket. According to the final paragraphs of the story, he And she will never be prosecuted as long as he continues to provide the radical left with the trillions of dollars they keep demanding.”
McConnell’s sabotage of Republican Senate candidates absolutely needs to be the end of the road for him to lead. People need to start calling for his resignation. Don’t send another dime to the party committee.

Maybe Mickey can start helping
Mitch McConnell has made it clear that he not only dislikes Donald Trump, but also the candidates Trump supports. The former is fine. The second is not, for a man in his place.
McConnell will have to answer whether he really wants to win and retake the Senate in November, or remain a puppet for Chuck Schumer and Democrats and get along.
While there’s still a long way to go, Republican candidates in key Senate races could take advantage of the boost.according to really clear political average polls, In Arizona, Democratic Senator Mark Kelly led Republican challenger Blake Masters by 6 points.
In Georgia, the competition is getting tougher, with Sen. Rafael Warnock just one point ahead of Herschel Walker. In Ohio, JD Vance is 3.7 points ahead of Senator Tim Ryan. In the all-important state of Pennsylvania, far-left Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fettman is 6.5 points ahead of Dr. Mohamed Oz, and in Wisconsin, Democratic Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes is ahead of Senator Ron Johnson was 4.3 percentage points higher.
Maybe Mitch McConnell can stop playing mean girl with Donald Trump to help some Republicans win.
Rick Scott leads where Mitch McConnell doesn’t. https://t.co/cTEqybqypM
