RINOs Are Quickly Being Asked To Step Down
A county Republican Party in Kentucky demanded that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) resign as leader after his comments on the Senate floor over the past weekend.
“I do not take this action lightly and understand the ramifications in doing so,” says a written statement by Nelson County GOP head Don Thrasher released on Tuesday, noting that he received Trump’s statement about McConnell’s leadership. “As the highest ranking Republican in that position you are de facto leader of the National Republican Party.”
“The overwhelming number of Republicans in Nelson County are not on your side on this issue and I speak on their behalf,” he says, writing that McConnell’s “leadership does not represent the Republican voters that put our faith in you in the last primary election” before asking the Senate Republican leader to resign.
The Epoch Times reached out to McConnell’s office for comment. After Trump’s statement was published, McConnell has not issued a public response.
The Nelson County Republican Party censured McConnell last month over the GOP leader’s comments on the Senate floor in condemning Trump’s speech to supporters on Jan. 6.
On Tuesday evening, Trump released a statement via his Save America PAC and called on Republican senators to abandon McConnell and threatened primary challenges to Republican incumbents.
