As the article suggests, it's a possible sign of wilting Trump power in the GOP. It's as if there's something in the air letting us know that DJT is slowly falling by the wayside.

The Tennessee Republican Party on Tuesday dealt a blow to former President Donald Trump's standing as the leader of the GOP when it voted to remove a congressional candidate he endorsed from the state's primary ballot.

Morgan Ortagus, the candidate favored by Trump, was taken off the ballot for the 5th Congressional District along with two others, Baxter Lee and Robby Starbuck, by the party's executive committee, Tennessee Republican Chairman Scott Golden confirmed to multiple local outlets.

Official challenges had been filed against all three candidates. In Ortagus' case, Republican state legislators and party officials pushed for her removal because she had only moved to Tennessee last year. A party bylaw requires candidates to have voted in three of the last four GOP primaries and to participate in local Republican parties.

The GOP Elites have struck a blow.

McConnell is smiling.
