Tucker Carlson reported that Mitch McConnell & company has pulled $8 million in ads out of Arizona, where Republican nominee Blake Masters is challenging Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly.
Masters trailed at one time by 12 points in the polls, but an Emerson College poll released last week has Masters down just two points.
Ned Ryun of American Majority told Tucker the race is “winnable,” but McConnell doesn’t want America First Republicans in his caucus.
“One of the reasons they’re doing this, if we’re being honest, the GOP establishment is not putting America First,” he said. “They don’t want America First. It’s Washington First and America maybe eventually.”
McConnell would rather be the leader of the GOP in the Senate and is fine being in the minority, Ryun said, so long as he’s the Republican leader.
“Mitch McConnell would much rather lose races than have America First Senators in the Senate because he’s petty, he’s vindictive and he despises the base,” Ryun said. “That’s the only explanation. He’s playing games with the future of this country because he is petty and vindictive.”
Carlson reminded viewers that McConnell and his family have greatly benefited from their ties to China, and speculated having openly anti-China Senators may not be a good thing.
“You don’t want Ameria First Senators inside a Republican caucus, then it becomes unruly, you might not be able to control it,” Ryun said.
