Weekend thread: What's going on?
Republican Sen. Rick Scott is accused by GOP of mismanaging Senate campaign money. CNN's new CEO made promise to Republicans. Liz Cheney lambastes Kevin McCarthy.
Embattled GOP Senate candidates are begging for money, as strategists and campaign officials are charging that the National Republican Senatorial Committee, led by Florida GOP Senator Rick Scott, has mismanaged (absconded?) millions of dollars, with some calling for a full-blown investigation.
This is happening as the GOP is worried it will lose the mid-terms, with Mitch McConnell admitting it and pointing to “candidate quality” as the problem.
It’s complete and total disarray, as Liz Cheney, fresh off losing her primary in Wyoming is intent on taking down Big Lie-supporting Republicans in the mid-terms, and started out with a shot across the bow at Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
But is CNN going to come to the GOP’s rescue, worried about sagging ratings and looking to the conservative GOP base to lift them up? The new CEO, Chris Licht, has been making some concerning moves.
