Senator Scott Hits Back at McConnell Criticisms

It would appear that we have the makings of a donnybrook at the top of the food chain in the Republican wing of the Senate.

Senator McConnell (R-KY) recently expressed displeasure with “candidate quality” and cited it as why Republicans may lose the Senate outright in this election.

Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), the National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman, just ripped him for saying that.

Do Your Job

Honestly, it is not McConnell’s job to critique candidate quality; that is our job.

I agree with McConnell on several candidates, but, again, that is not his job to say that.

McConnell’s job is to sit back, wait for the primary, then help every Republican winner in the general election.

He has two jobs as the leader in the GOP Senate.

He needs to rally Senators to back or oppose legislation and support the candidates to help them in their elections.

Scott believes that McConnell’s comments are hurting the GOP’s chances to take the Senate back.

He wants to see McConnell boost them, not cut them down.

Scott stated, “We have great candidates.

“He wants to do the same thing I want to do: I want to get a majority.

“And I think it’s important that we’re all cheerleaders for our candidates.”

McConnell, however, has an ax to grind with Trump, and there is nothing he would like to see more than every Trump candidate fail to win their race.

To that point, Scott stated, “If you trash talk our candidates … you hurt our chances of winning, and you hurt our candidates’ ability to raise money.

“I know they’re good candidates, because I’ve been talking to them and they’re working their butts off.”

Let’s see if this little pep talk gets McConnell back in the game or if he digs in on his criticism of Trump’s candidates.

  1. Moscow Mitch is probably afraid he won’t be able to control Trump candidates if theyvwin
    He’s less than an effective leader and it’s time for him to sail off into the sunset so someone who has some intestinal fortitude and not so easy to capitulate take leadership. The GOP NEEDS to learn how to play hardball like the Dems.

    1. Absolutely true about Mitch McConnell. He doesn’t want Trump to be the Republican nominee and win, so he gets his fellow Senators and they sup support who McConnell wants. Remember if Trump wins the Presidentiall election, he wants people in office who will help him, not hurt him like McConnell tries to do all the time. McConnell begged Trump to help him to win his seat in Kentucky in 2020, and Trump did help him. After he won, McConnell starts putting Trump down. He has forgotten that the candidates are supposed to serve the President after he wins, but McConnell has forgotten that!!

  2. Mitch the Biotch is a Traitor RINO.
    I can’t believe the good people of Kentucky re-elected him, but then again we all know how elections work now thanks to 2020.

  3. Mitch McConnell has NO interest in exposing years of Biden family CORRUPTION because his own corruption may then be exposed. McConnell’s father in law is a communist Chinese oligarch and Mitch has helped him make more money…

  4. McConnell is the reason I no longer give money to the Republican Party
    I now give directly to the Republican candidates so none goes to you.
    So understand McConnell, my money only goes to the republicans that are truly conservatives

    1. Amen Cyndi, I won’t give to the Republican Party either, only give to the candidate!And Mitch isn’t one of them.

    2. WE are doing just that. The RNC is too infested and we will not support them. The CANDIDATES are the ones that need our money and support.

  5. Corruption in the swamp is rampant. Both parties are guilty. That is why no matter how much an outsider (like Trump) tries to get legitimate, honest people in place it will never happen. The evil that exists is not controllable – no matter how one tries. We are seeing the end of another realm that our forefathers could never have imagined.

    1. It ain’t over, til it’s over. Please don’t throw in the towel this early in the game. It’s a game worth winning!

  6. I think the Gov. of Kentucky should recall this RINO NOW!!!!!!!!!! The people of Kentucky and the U.S. deserve better this guy.

  7. I HAVE VOTED FOR MAC CONNEL BECAUSE LESSER OF TWO EVEILS BUT MITCH, HE IS SO SMUCK ABOUT HE CANT BE REPLACED TIME TO0 GET NEW BLOOD FOR US KENTUCKYIANS . KENTUCKY WE CAN DO BETTER THAN RINOS IN OUR REPRESENTAIVES.

  8. Until McConnell n McCarthy are out, same w/ me .I stop donating for a year already. Cuz it’s not going any where. GOP must be serious getting these two out.

  9. I’m in total agreement with your decision. I came to the same one almost two years. I’m not sending the RNC a dime. There’s too many traders in their ranks.

    1. Your post is good, these politicians’ got a lot of nerve to always ask for money!! I am 86 living on 1 thousand a month SS, and thankful I get that, no donations from me!!!

  10. If we had “Term Limits” we would not have the Great Number of Corrupt Politicians that we now have. Power always corrupts,but it is totally out of control in our present government. TERM LIMITS NEEDED!!!

  11. What I can’t understand. GOP has the best tactic to play libs game. As hard as demos are trying to down Trump, GOP should turn tables against them and become as ruthless as they are against Hillary and Obama for their dirt. That will keep them very busy and furious to cover their treachery. Including Pelosi.

  12. mcConnell has shown time and time again that he is a traitor to the republican party why he was voted back in office is beyond me surely kentuckians need a better representative and senator mcConnell’s time has come and gone time the RNC finds a new candidate and leader i will support TRUMP if he does come back screw mcconnel we need a better leader not one of pelosis puppet and schummers buddy
