Conservatives are watching Steve Bannon and his efforts to burn down the establishment GOP, as we have known it for a long time. With the success of Judge Roy Moore, we are all hopeful that Bannon can deliver several more wins in the upcoming 2018 primaries. Donors are lining up, so it’s looking promising.
… Bannon reportedly is lining up a series of primary challengers whom he believes will back President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great American Alliance and ex-White House aide, told Breitbart News, “We’re planning on building a broad anti-establishment coalition to replace the Republican Party of old with fresh new blood and fresh new ideas.”
Surabian added, “The only thing the Republican establishment has succeeded in is clarifying to the American people that they don’t represent their interests,” Surabian added. “Their repeated failures to govern have only crystallized their lack of vision or backbone. The group of candidates we are looking to support in 2018 are all bound together in their agreement that the new Republican Party must be bold in their thinking and aggressive in their tactics.”
Bannon met with Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus; Marcus reportedly vented about his lack of return on investment in Senate Republicans. Marcus, in the last six months, donated $2 million to a super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as well as tens of thousands of dollars to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), only to watch the Senate fail repeatedly.
… Bannon met with venture capitalist John Childs, who recently donated $400,000 to McConnell’s 2014 reelection. Bannon also discussed the 2018 mid-term elections with Gore-Tex heiress Susan Gore, a major backer of libertarian causes.
The donors just keep lining up. When will the GOP establishment figure it out? Probably after the 2018 primaries, when it’s too late.
