President Donald Trump needs reinforcements in the senate.
And he has a massive opportunity to replace obstructionist liberals with Republicans.
There are 10 Democrat senators that are up for re-election in states that Trump claimed victory in during the 2016 election — he will potentially be able to counter out establishment Republican senators with small-government conservatives.
Here are their names — vote them out:
- Debbie Stabenow (Michigan)
- Bob Casey Jr. (Pennsylvania)
- Sherrod Brown (Ohio)
- Joe Manchin (West Virginia)
- Bill Nelson (Florida)
- Joe Donnelly (Indiana)
- Claire McCaskill (Missouri)
- Jon Tester (Montana)
- Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota)
- Tammy Baldwin (Wisconsin)
Senate seats are crucial for Trump’s “America First” agenda — plus, the more “Neil Gorsuch” type justices he can appoint during his tenure, the better.
Plus, while Senators like John McCain are still in office, they need to be combatted with solid conservative outsiders. Remember when John McCain voted to keep Obamacare days after he finished surgery on his brain tumor? The Hill reported:
McCain cast the “no” vote two days after a dramatic return to the Senate floor during which he called on his colleagues to work together on major issues such as healthcare reform, which has long been a Senate tradition until the upsurge of partisanship in recent years.
McCain emerged this year as one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics in Congress and the late-night vote cements his status as a maverick, a role he relished earlier in his career when President George W. Bush occupied the White House.
The vote was on bare-bones healthcare proposal, dubbed the “skinny” repeal, as it left untouched big sections of ObamaCare.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pushed it as a backup proposal after Republicans failed to agree on a bigger repeal that repealed and replaced the pillars of ObamaCare or a repeal-only measure that passed both chambers in 2015.
McConnell appeared almost distraught after McCain’s surprise vote and seemed close to choking up on the floor after falling short of his promise to repeal ObamaCare.
“This is clearly a disappointing moment,” he said.
“I regret that our efforts were simply not enough this time. Now, I imagine many of our colleagues on the other side are celebrating. Probably pretty happy about all this. But the American people are hurting, and they need relief.”
McCain’s vote surprised many Republicans including Sen. Bill Cassidy (La.), who said he thought the Arizona Republican was in favor of the legislation.
Vice President Pence was spotted lobbying McCain on the Senate floor shortly before the crucial vote. He also worked on Collins while other GOP leaders focused on Murkowski. But those efforts fell short.
It’s time for the RINOs to be replaced.
