Conservatives were fed up with RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But then Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rode in to the rescue.
Now Ron DeSantis forced Mitch McConnell to make one big change that no one saw coming.
In his first comment on the matter, Mitch McConnell offered words of support for DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to transport illegal aliens to Democrat-run sanctuary states and cities in a bid to highlight Joe Biden’s failure to secure the border.
“I personally thought it was a good idea,” McConnell says at weekly press conference of DeSantis and Abbbot transporting migrants to places like DC and Martha’s Vineyard.

McConnell’s new-found optimism stood in stark contrast to the defeatist attitude McConnell expressed in public this summer where McConnell tried to sabotage Trump-backed candidates’ chances of winning key races by echoing the Democrat Party talking points that they were “fringe extremists.”
“I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate. Senate races are just different — they’re statewide, candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome,” McConnell stated.
“Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate, either our side up slightly or their side up slightly,” McConnell continued.
DeSantis transporting illegal aliens to the wealthy liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard allowed Republicans to refocus the Midterm election debate on immigration.
Polling shows immigration is the issue Republicans hold the biggest lead on over Democrats so any day the news cycle is focused on the border is a day Republicans are winning.

DeSantis putting immigration in the spotlight rescued Republicans from McConnell’s disastrous decision to position the GOP as the party of gun control.
McConnell thought he could woo suburban swing voters by caving to Democrats and Joe Biden on banning and confiscating firearms.
But after McConnell supported the largest gun control package in 30 years, the polls shifted in Democrats’ favor.
Mitch McConnell tried to throw the Midterm elections because he was mad a bunch of candidates endorsed by Donald Trump won their primaries.
But thanks to Ron DeSantis raising the profile of immigration and Joe Biden’s open borders agenda, Republicans have a winning message to campaign on.
