Republicans Who Voted to Impeach Trump Are Outraising Pro-Trump Challengers
For context I think the RNC and Trump are siphoning the funds that would normally go to candidates and are making them kiss the ring to get itI don't think the opposition necessarily has more funds
If fundraising alone won races, we’d be talking about Senator Jaime Harrison instead of Lindsey Graham. The majority of the GOP base is still firmly behind Rump and his acolytes
Hopefully that is a sign that Trump is being purged from the GOP system.
Good news, but without some comparison of the usual numbers/percentages/etc regarding incumbents and challengers, it’s not clear how good.
Is this just an incumbent advantage
I miss the old mildly racist semi-fascist Republicans
Ah but Sarah Huckabee Sanders is raising a fortune for her sweep into governor of Arkansas, and it really sucks that someone who lied so blatantly can win so easily.
Enough of this story. The GOP cannot and should not be redeemed. No more pretending that it has a soul to save just because a handful of rich assholes want to prove they aren't traitors.
It's all the same when the party plays both sides. Don't praise these people, they're still awful.
While this is good news, it's only larger because there are so few who voted to impeach. If half of House Republicans voted to impeach and half didn't, I expect the acquitters would be killing it comparatively.
Because as much as the corporations love the tax breaks and screwing over labor they know in the long run fascists make for bad business.
Probably because trump grifted all his supporters money away already.They got nothing left to give.
The thing is trump is a grifter, and a grifter is going to grift. He really doesn't care about the republican party, he only cares about the money that he can take from them. He is going to drain a swamp but that swamp is going to be the republicans cash reserves.
This news is HUGE! It needs front page exposure because it’s that important.
The only good Republican Party is a Defunct Republican Party. The VAST majority are exactly like some of the loons who are trying to be the new head of the beast but they’re just a little more quiet about it. Make no mistakes, they want all the same policies with a more palatable level of racism and bigotry.
Thank You Lord Jesus
Reward those who took the correct action. Don't reward the anti-democratic, traitorous GOP.
Outraising and winning an election are two different things.
FTA:>Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio) — another top Trump target — raised nearly $557,000 through the first three months of the year, **leaving his campaign with $438,000 in the bank**> ...> Max Miller, a former Trump administration official, is challenging Gonzalez with the former president’s blessing. Trump held a fundraiser for Miller last month, boosting his $508,000 first-quarter haul. **Miller has around $439,000 in the bank, less than half of the incumbent’s total.**what kind of math is this? how is $439,000 "less than half" of $438,000?
I will again some faith in the sanity of this country only if more of the pro Trump fools lose in the midterms.
Maybe the reality is setting in that extremist views don't align with the success of the many. Faith in American values are being restored while the corruption is being revealed and addressed.
That, at least, is heartening.
Good to know the republicans who give a shit about this country are taking action.
And they didn't need change their talking pints much. I hope they keep their seats.
Finally. Also-eff them all, they’re traitors.
In the land of blind swine the one eyed pig is king
Yes. Scrap those Trump people off like $hit on your shoe.
On the other side of the equation is this NY Times article titled ["Fund-Raising Surged for Republicans Who Sought to Overturn the Election"](https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/17/us/politics/republicans-fund-raising-capitol-riot.html), so things might not be as clear as all that.
That's not overly surprising.Most of the one's who voted to impeach, are in safe districts where they can be sure that their base will still vote for them after voting to impeach.
I mean, clearly. They didn’t vote to impeach trump out of their conscience. It was a political move. They know their constituents.
Two key questions: Are the funds coming from corporate rather than grassroots donors? And how big is the gap? Decently funded grassroots candidates can overtake corporate behemoths.
Well that's unexpected good news.
let them eat each other
How are their polling numbers, are they winning there too?
I'd be a lot more relieved by this if so many people weren't surprised.
By the time the next congressional primaries begin, Trump could be irrelevant.
We can only hope sanity regains a foothold in the GOP. A 2008 style GOP would still be terrible but a hell of a lot better than the 2020 GOP.
Go to hell Cruz!!
Recurring payments from dimwits?
Deep pockets hate Trump. Of course they support corporatist RINOs. They want Republicans and Democrats who will help them get even richer.
Who cares? The Republican Party is rotten to the core, these people are barely any better
