    As chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) had one job: win the Senate majority. Not only did he fail, but he did so in spectacular fashion — through calamitous mismanagement of the NRSC that left Republican candidates under fire without air cover in the final critical months of the midterm elections. Now Scott is trying to deflect blame for the GOP’s disastrous showing. So, it’s worth reviewing the record of his catastrophic tenure at the helm of the GOP’s Senate campaign arm. According to the New York Times, by July of this year, Scott’s NRSC...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) reportedly said Wednesday that what he and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have said about the future of the Republican Party is “remarkably similar.” The comment comes after Schumer said in an interview with the New York Times he would like Republicans to work with Democrats in the aftermath of the midterm elections. Schumer’s remarks precede a Senate Republican Conference meeting in which Republicans will have to choose between McConnell and Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), the outgoing National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman, as the new Senate minority leader.

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) defended the National Republican Senatorial Committee amid calls that its performance under his leadership should be audited after Republicans failed to take the Senate majority in the midterm elections. Scott said he would be willing to sit down with anyone concerned about the NRSC's bookkeeping and spending and touted the financial reforms he already enacted on the Senate Republicans' campaign arm when he took over in 2021. He invited the Senate Leadership Fund PAC associated with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to do the same.... ....Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) were the two...

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) announced at a lunch meeting with fellow Republican senators on Tuesday that he is challenging current Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for his leadership post in the new Congress. Scott is the head of the NRSC, the GOP’s Senate campaign arm. His controversial tenure resulted in Democrats narrowly retaining control of the Senate. Scott’s bid is seen more as a protest as McConnell appears to have sufficient support to remain Leader. President Trump spoke about a Scott challenge to McConnell in a n interview last week with Glenn Beck, “I think Rick Scott would be...

    As the Republican Party appears poised to regain a Senate majority in Tuesday’s midterm elections, prior speculation of a challenge to Mitch McConnell’s leadership has only increased as the final hours count down. As reported by The Hill, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) has long hinted at the possibility that he might challenge McConnell for the position of Senate Majority Leader. On Sunday, Scott again refused to rule out the option of running against McConnell after NBC’s Chuck Todd asked him about such a showdown on “Meet the Press.” When Todd asked if Scott would consider running for Senate Majority...

    With Republicans poised to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and possibly the U.S. Senate, could Republicans winning control of the Senate usher in Florida Senator Rick Scott as the new Senate Majority Leader? Former Senate Majority Leader and current Minority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, is considered persona non grata among most voting Americans, and many Conservative Senators in Washington for his open opposition of former President Donald Trump. President Trump has been at odds with Sen. McConnell since the 2020 Presidential Election, and after McConnell all but blamed Trump for inciting the January 6 Capitol Riot, the...
  • Liz Cheney’s Plan To Divide The Republican Party Has Failed

    The widespread and coordinated plan to divide the Republican Party has failed, and it’s a major reason why Democrat prospects for the 2022 midterms are so bad. Separating Republican officials from their growing coalition of voters and the issues they care about has been the Washington establishment’s goal for several years now. The “divide and conquer” plan is being run by the Democrat Party, its propaganda press, and former leaders of the Republican Party such as Liz Cheney, who see how the GOP’s new composition and approach has threatened or destroyed their hold on power. The D.C. partnership has worked...

    Washington’s Senate race between 30-year incumbent Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Republican Tiffany Smiley has been placed on “upset alert” by the University of Virginia Center for Politics. Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, the Center’s political prognosticating publication, also switched the race from “Safe Democratic” to “Likely Democratic.” The move in favor of Smiley also comes as the Republican outraised Murray by nearly double in the third quarter, beating her $6 million to $3.3 million. National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) also put Smiley’s race on his list of pick-up opportunities.

    President Donald Trump and the Republican Party remained in Herschel Walker’s corner Tuesday following a report that alleged the pro-life Senate hopeful from Georgia paid for an ex-girlfriend to get an abortion 13 years ago. Trump said Walker, whom he encouraged to challenge incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, has been “slandered and maligned by the Fake News Media and obviously, the Democrats.” “Interestingly, I’ve heard many horrible things about his opponent, Raphael Warnock, things that nobody should be talking about, so we don’t. Herschel has properly denied the charges against him, and I have no doubt he is correct,” the...

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has reportedly changed his mind on Republican chances of retaking control of the Senate in the midterm elections. Previously in doubt that Sen. Rick Scott’s (R-FL) plan at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) would yield positive results, McConnell was cautiously optimistic Republicans will gain the majority, the Chamber of Commerce told Axios. McConnell attended a closed-door meeting on Monday at the chamber, where he said Republicans’ chances of retaking the Senate have improved. McConnell has previously claimed it was more likely Republicans would retake the House than the Senate. McConnell’s words are notable because he...

    . t was early 2021, and Sen. Rick Scott wanted to go big. The new chair of the Senate Republican campaign arm had a mind to modernize the place. .A year later, some of that braggadocio has vanished — along with most of the money. . By the end of July, the committee had collected a record $181.5 million — but had already spent more than 95% of what it had brought in. The Republican group entered August with just $23.2 million on hand, . . Now top Republicans are beginning to ask: Where did all the money go? .
