Trump Just Made His Move To Get McCain’s Seat Filled By Real Conservative

Published

on

Since the death of Senator John McCain, rumors have been swirling about who will replace him. His daughter Meghan McCain, a co-host of The View, and his wife Cindy McCain have all had their names thrown out there. However, the Arizona governor has also been in contention as well. Regardless, the announcement of who will actually fill it will not come until after the ending of all the funeral services.

The Daily Caller reported,

“President Trump spoke via phone with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey this week following the death of Senator John McCain. According to a Friday Politico report, four sources with knowledge of their conversation described the call as a “wide-ranging” one that included topics such as health care, President Trump’s proposed border wall, and the Senate vacancy created by the death of McCain. Trump also reportedly congratulated Ducey, whom he endorsed several days before Tuesday’s election, for his recent primary victory.

Ducey, tasked with appointing the late Senator McCain’s replacement, has thus far has not given any hints as to whom he is considering. “We have stated repeatedly that we would not discuss an appointment to the seat vacated by Sen. McCain’s passing until his life is honored and he is laid to rest. That continues to be the case and we will have nothing further to add,” Ducey spokesman Daniel Ruiz told Politico.”

CNN reported,

“In replacing John McCain, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is set to make the most important decision of his political career — one that could determine his future in Republican politics. Ducey faces massive, competing pressures in selecting someone to fill McCain’s Senate seat until a 2020 special election. Donald Trump and his supporters will want a reliable vote in the Senate and will blame Ducey if his appointee breaks with the President.

McCain’s camp, meanwhile, could prefer someone in the “Maverick” mold or a placeholder who wouldn’t seek re-election. Then there’s Arizona’s rapid evolution from reliably Republican to a diverse swing state where Senate seats won’t be easy for the GOP to hold. Republicans say Ducey is aware of those competing factors but aren’t sure how he’ll balance them.

“Of course he’s considered what he would do,” one Republican strategist close to Ducey said. “Of course. It’s a very high responsibility.” But, the strategist said, Ducey directed aides and advisers to “not engage in any kind of speculation at all” about the appointment — including discussing what qualifications and background Ducey might be looking for — until after McCain was buried in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday.

“I don’t think he wants to look backward. He’s a young man, politically speaking, and so he wants to be able to narrate something about him here too,” said veteran Arizona GOP strategist Chuck Coughlin. “Arguably this is the biggest decision of his career.” The former chief executive officer of Cold Stone Creamery, Ducey brought a cold, corporate style with him into the political world.

“If you cross him, you’re done,” one Arizona Republican said. “He’s got a very tight hand on that ship.” For a governor, Ducey’s political orbit is small. His chief of staff, Kirk Adams, is a former Arizona House speaker who serves as Ducey’s primary go-between with state lawmakers. Danny Seiden, who left Ducey’s office to join a law firm, is another government and campaign veteran close to Ducey.

Washington-based consultant Doug Goodyear, who maintains a Scottsdale home and was Ducey’s neighbor, is close to the governor. And Republican strategist Danny Diaz was Ducey’s general consultant before he managed Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign. Ducey has a working relationship with Trump, those close to him say — and Trump’s endorsement of Ducey after Tuesday’s primary could be read as a sign that the White House is paying attention to his moves — but he’s closer to Vice President Mike Pence, who was elected governor of Indiana two years before Ducey became governor of Arizona.

Anonymous sources in Ducey’s inner circle of friends said that they were not sure who the Governor was going to choose as of Wednesday. Ducey’s office has only released one lone statement by a senior adviser known as Daniel Ruiz which he sent to reporters last weekend. “Out of respect for the life and legacy of Senator John McCain and his family, Governor Ducey will not be making any announcements about an appointment until after the Senator is laid to rest. Now is a time for remembering and honoring a consequential life well lived,” Ruiz said in the statement.

Despite the fact that Ducey’s camp is relatively mum on the issue, speculation has continued with Arizona Republicans about the women that Ducey has appointed to various positions in the state government who might be in consideration for the Senate spot. One person, in particular, Senator Jon Kyl is being discussed. Kyl retired over five years ago and was brought up into consideration for the 2020 special election. However, Kyl would not comment about whether or not he had interest in the job.

Details Of The Death Threats Mrs. Kavanaugh Is Getting Will Churn Your Stomach

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh has received a battery of death threats in recent days, after allegations appeared in the press that the judge sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford in 1982.

The vivid missives are just one iteration of the inflamed rhetoric surrounding Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court, following Ford’s accusations. The Ford family has similarly been threatened.

“May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell,” one message to Mrs. Kavanaugh read.

Another told Mrs. Kavanaugh to put a bullet in her husband’s skull.

The Wall Street Journal obtained the emails on Thursday, which were delivered as federal law enforcement is tracking an uptick in threats against Judge Kavanaugh and his family. The messages were sent to Mrs. Kavanaugh’s work email address. The U.S. Marshals Service is pursuing the matter.

The Kavanaugh family has drawn intense media attention since Ford’s accusations were publicized Sunday in The Washington Post. Mrs. Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes to a gaggle of reporters stationed outside their home on Tuesday.

Mrs. Kavanaugh is no stranger to political conflict. She was an assistant to former President George W. Bush when he was governor of Texas and later served as his personal secretary in the White House. She is currently a town manager in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Ford herself has also been subject to vile threats. She and her family have been forced from their home in California and remain concerned for their safety, according to her attorneys.

Republicans Quietly Set All-Time Record While Democrats Collapse Overnight

Published

on

While the American Left is busy trying to pull the rug from under hard-working Americans by pushing an anti-Trump narrative that’s about as believable as the conspiracy that the earth is flat, the GOP was doing a bit of magic of its own.

It’s now being reported that the Republican National Committee has smashed all fundraising records by raising $213 million so far for the fall midterm elections. And what’s even better is the fact the 99% of the money comes from small donations.

Here is more via CNN:

“The Republican National Committee has raised more than $200 million this election cycle, according to an RNC official, the fastest the committee has reached the milestone in a midterm period.

The fundraising achievement, which was expected after the committee came within $900,000 of $200 million last month, is significant for a party that is trying to buck historical norms in 2018. The political party in power traditionally gets rejected at the ballot box two years after they take power, a fact that President Donald Trump has mentioned numerous times in public and private as Republicans prepare for November.

The RNC raised $13.9 million in the month of June — the most it has raised in that month in a non-presidential year — bringing its total fundraising haul to $213 million for the 2017-2018 cycle.

The committee has $50.7 million in the bank and no debt.

The RNC’s numbers will officially be released on Friday when the committee files with the Federal Election Commission.

The RNC haul far eclipses the more than $101 million the Democratic National Committee has raised this cycle, giving the committee upwards of five times the amount of cash-on-hand as the Democrats.

“What I see when I travel the country is that Americans continue to be enthusiastic about President Trump and the Republican agenda,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “That enthusiasm has allowed for me to grow our war chest and invest it into what has become the biggest ground game in our Party’s history.”

Despite the excitement McDaniel says she has experienced traveling the country, polling has consistently shown Democrats, motivated by anti-Trump fervor, are more excited to vote in 2018 and see the election as a referendum on the President. That excitement, though, has not turned into a fundraising boon for the DNC.

The DNC raised $67 million in 2017, half of the $132.5 million the RNC raised that year. And, to date, the committee has raised $101 million this cycle, according to a DNC official, a number that pales in comparison to the RNC haul.

The fundraising woes have left the Democrats without much in the bank. According to its last FEC report, the RNC had $47 million in cash on hand, five times as much as the $9 million the Democrats have.

Party Chair Tom Perez, who was tasked with rebuilding a beleaguered DNC after Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016, has tried to focus on fundraising while also investing their smaller war chest in more strategic ways than previous chairs.

“For me, the north star is not can we match them dollar for dollar,” Perez told CNN of the RNC. “It is can we raise the money we need to execute our game plane.”

The DNC under Perez, for example, has spent no money on television ads, something his predecessors did do.

McDaniel, who became RNC chair in December 2016, has led the committee’s effort to raise massive sums during the 2018 midterms.

With an eye on investing $250 million into the party’s midterm efforts, McDaniel has spent a bulk of her time traveling from state-to-state to raise money for the party.”

Western Journalism is reporting that this is, in fact, the fasted the GOP has ever surpassed the $200 million mark during a midterm election year. Which would point to the fact that people are happy with President Donald Trump and his agenda.

Chairwoman of the GOP Ronna McDaniel has said she is traveling the nation and that she sees the fact that people are happy with the Republican agenda wherever she goes. And that’s what is causing this influx of funds at such a high rate of speed. McDaniel has held over 88 fundraisers and is on the phone with donors for six hours a day.

Now what’s even better is that according to the fundraiser numbers that will be released today the Republican party broke the record for the most amount of money raised in June during a non-presidential election year: $13.9 million. And what’s perhaps even a better gauge is that the GOP also has $50.7 million in the bank and zero debt. This alone places them well ahead of the Democrat National Committee, which has raised $101 million and has $9 million on hand. That’s 5 times less than the money the RNC has to spend in the upcoming midterms. This is not a new problem for the DNC, in 2017 they were only able to raise $67 million compared to the $132.5 million raised by the RNC. Pretty pathetic if you consider the DNC owns all of Hollywood.
