Washington Post: 'GOP Senate candidates back Trump on almost everything. But only Greitens has joined him in publicly attacking McConnell.'
On Steve Bannon’s War Room, US Senate Candidate & former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens announced that once elected to the Senate he would vote against Sen. Mitch McConnell as GOP Senate Leader. Governor Greitens is the first prominent GOP Senate candidate of the 2022 cycle to take this leading position.
Governor Greitens stated the following:
“President Donald J. Trump proved to the Republican Party that the only way to meaningfully advance conservative policy is through strong, uncompromising leadership. That’s why as a Republican running for Missouri’s open U.S. Senate seat, I am committed to finding new leadership in the Senate when Republicans win back the majority in 2022.
We have sadly watched Mitch McConnell morph from a conservative fighter into the power- merchant of D.C., prioritizing special interests and personal influence over America. Now he is actively engaged in working against President Trump and the MAGA movement as we chart our path back to the majority—seemingly unaware why he even has his job in the first place.
As a Navy SEAL and Governor, I recognize that people are sick of the weak, woke RINOs. President Trump had one of the most consequential administrations in the history of the Republic. Now, just imagine what we would have accomplished if we had an America First House and Senate.”
Governor Greitens was lauded by several prominent conservatives including Jack Posobiec, Ned Ryun, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Bernie Kerik, and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
Governor Greitens also penned an exclusive op-ed in Breitbart outlining his leading position.
According to President Trump’s pollster, Governor Greitens holds a nearly 40 point lead in the Missouri GOP Senate primary. The poll found Greitens enjoys support from 55 percent of those who view Trump favorably.
