Posted on 06/18/2016 9:22:30 AM PDT by Helicondelta
Its the very thing the GOP Establishment fears most loss of control.
This week, an example of that diminished control reverberated throughout D.C. as challenger Scott Taylor, who is a former Navy SEAL and current Virginia State Representative, defeated longtime Republican Congressman Randy Forbes.
Taylor supported Donald Trump and Trumps America-first economic platform. Randy Forbes did not.
Virginia voters just fired Randy Forbes.
Taylor hosted a Virginia Trump rally as far back as September, and has since repeated his plan to support the New York billionaire in his upcoming presidential battle against Hillary Clinton.
Reports indicate a stunned House Speaker Paul Ryan was quick to phone Taylor and offer his support in his General Election bid this November as Republicans in D.C. brace for yet more pro-Trump influence that is already shaking the Establishment foundations of the party.

It must be something about Virginia where Cantor also got primaried.
Awesome! I’m surprised this hasn’t been bigger news. Now Wisconsin needs to do the same to weasel Ryan.
Good!!! The false narrative is running thick! Now today we have this story, some new polls coming out and hopefully a big slap down of the GOPe coming!!
And Arizona needs to do the same to McCain. If Lyin Ryan and McVain are defeated the GOPe will know full well we the grassroots will not be f***ed with anymore.
Due to redistricting, it was a new district for both Republicans in the primary.
Taylor won 53-41 despite being outspent 10-1.
Great to hear this.
Great news of things to come!!!
Good luck. Expect the national GOP to refuse support and actively aid the DemocRat. Trust me.
That Bears repeating !!!
Good to hear.
Like the WaPo really cares about VA’s diminished influence in the House.
I’ll be ecstatic if we’re finally rid of McCain.
Let’s hope that Paul Nehlen does the same to Ryan. I hate Ryan intensely.
That’s a start.......a beautiful start......;)
Yep...Kelli has my vote!! She has been working so very hard traveling the state and talking to people. She deserves to replace McCain!!
Keep it rolling.....
