‘Stay away’: Pennsylvania Republicans claim Trump rally makes them less likely to vote for GOP candidate

Published

on

President Donald Trump over the weekend held a raucous campaign rally in Western Pennsylvania to bolster the campaign of Republican candidate Rick Saccone — but even some Republican voters in the district are wary of the president’s presence.

Pennsylvania Republican voter Carol Thomas, who says she is backing GOP candidate Rick Saccone in this Tuesday’s special congressional election, told CNN on Monday that she believes the president’s weekend rally would actually make it more difficult for Republicans to hold the seat.

“If I were Saccone, I’d tell Trump to stay away because he puts his foot in his mouth,” she said.

Thomas also said that Trump’s presence in Western Pennsylvania over the weekend made her “much less inclined” to back Saccone.

Pennsylvania voter Michelle Grimpe similarly tells CNN that she’s backing Saccone — but she says that she doesn’t “like necessary how the president presents himself” and she said that Trump’s attitude made her feel tempted to back Saccone’s rival, Democrat Conor Lamb.

On HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher on Friday

"It's sad when a Republican like Justin Amash is making a more principled case for impeachment than the Democratic Party," conservative Charlie Sykes argued.

"He's getting called a cuck by all people who are the 'originalists' and the constitutional conservatives," Bari Weiss noted. "It's their favorite insult."
