Endangered GOP senator: Dumping Trump is paying off

“The Illinois senator became the first Republican last month to release an anti-Trump television ad, which said his party's presumptive nominee "is not fit to be commander in chief." The 32-second spot, running in the Chicago market, outlines Kirk's efforts to present himself to voters in his liberal-leaning state as more moderate than his fellow Republicans in Washington………..Kirk is one of a handful of endangered Republican senators up for re-election……..

I find Donald Trump's belief that an American-born judge of Mexican descent is incapable of fairly presiding over his case is not only dead wrong, it is un-American," Kirk said at the time. Trump later issued a statement saying that his comments were "misconstrued" by the media….. A Kirk campaign official tells CNN that there has been an uptick in donor and volunteer interest since the senator distanced himself from Trump………..

Many Republicans in tough races are trying to do anything to distance themselves from Trump from what they believe “down ballot” bloodbath which is expected………. I can never in my life time have I ever seen much of a political party run for the doors as the Trump expected nomination of the GOP……..
Shocking……….

Stopped reading, right after that. NEVER trust an Illinois politician, regardless of what he says. I wouldn't trust an Illinois politician that told me the sky was blue.

Must be a day ending in "Y", huh Yoda? Gotta keep those Trump-Hate threads flowing.

To cite what is real and in the news is far from hating in my book...........

How is it for you?
