As the conference indicated that Liz Cheney would be ousted from her leadership position, and as Liz Cheney indicated that she would continue with her Trump bashing, 100 of her dear RINO friends threw a tantrum and threatened to take their toys and go home.
This is great news! It means that MAGA patriots don’t have to start a new party, which would be a risky move, politically. It has the added benefit of clearing out a bunch of non-Republicans (also known as Uniparty members) who are cluttering up the Republican Party.
New York Times – More than 100 Republicans, including some former elected officials, are preparing to release a letter this week threatening to form a third party if the Republican Party does not make certain changes, according to an organizer of the effort.
… “This is a first step,” said Miles Taylor, an organizer of the effort and a former Trump-era Department of Homeland Security official who anonymously wrote a book condemning the Trump administration. In October, Mr. Taylor acknowledged he was the author of both the book and a 2018 New York Times Op-Ed article.
“This is us saying that a group of more than 100 prominent Republicans think that the situation has gotten so dire with the Republican Party that it is now time to seriously consider whether an alternative might be the only option,” he said.
The list of people signing the statement includes former officials at both the state and national level who once were governors, members of Congress, ambassadors, cabinet secretaries, state legislators and Republican Party chairmen, Mr. Taylor said.
Mr. Taylor declined to name the signers. Reuters reported earlier that the former governors Tom Ridge of Pennsylvania and Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey will sign it, as will former Transportation Secretary Mary E. Peters and former Representatives Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, Barbara Comstock of Virginia, Reid Ribble of Wisconsin and Mickey Edwards of Oklahoma.
It is Donald Trump and his supporters who are the strength in the Republican Party. It is Donald Trump who won the 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections with more votes than any other President in history.
Based on the named potential signers of the “letter”, it sounds like a bunch of has-beens experiencing sour grapes. I can’t imagine it going very far.
