The GOP establishment is secretly plotting to get rid of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
And the Washington, D.C. Swamp’s insiders have picked their man.
And now one RINO just launched this sick plan to replace Ron DeSantis.
Midterm election campaigns are audition stages for potential Presidential candidates.
Polls show that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is the top choice for GOP voters if Donald Trump chooses not to run.
But RINO insiders want a more Mitt Romney-type candidate.
And Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin is making his case to the GOP establishment that he can be the heir to the Mitt Romney/John McCain version of Republicanism.
Axios reports that Youngkin plans to campaign for GOP gubernatorial candidates backed by the establishment who largely did not receive Donald Trump’s endorsement.
Youngkin has helped out, or is planning to help out, 10 GOP gubernatorial candidates. Just 3 of them have Trump’s backing, and 8 of the 10 are running in states that President Biden carried in 2020.
Youngkin’s announced campaign swing doesn’t include Arizona, where Lake is locked in a close contest. He’s also poised to skip Pennsylvania, where Trump on Saturday will hold his first general election rally of 2022.
By contrast, Ron DeSantis campaigned for Trump-backed candidates in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Ohio.
Youngkin also is not campaigning for Trump-backed Senate candidates whereas DeSantis held rallies for Trump-backed candidates Blake Masters, J.D. Vance and Dr. Oz.
“Youngkin isn’t campaigning in Senate races, but he’s either campaigning in person or holding fundraisers for GOP candidates for governor in Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, Nebraska, New Mexico and Oregon. Kansas will be added to that list,” Axios reported.
“He’s excited to bring the spirit of Virginia to swing states that look a lot like Virginia did last year, turn blue states’ culture of defeat into a spirit of winning, and help flip these purple and blue states red,” Youngkin advisor Kristin Davison told Axios.
The GOP establishment wants to exile all vestiges of Donald Trump from the party.
And since Ron DeSantis is seen as the Republican most likely to carry the torch for Trump’s America First brand of conservatism the GOP establishment is looking for a stalking horse to take down DeSantis.
And GOP insiders are looking at these Midterm elections to see if Glenn Youngkin has the chops to push aside DeSantis and return control of the GOP to the Mitt Romney/George W. Bush/Mitch McConnell establishment forces.
