GOP deploying Nikki Haley to boost embattled incumbents who want nothing to do with Trump standing next to them: report

Published

on

With President Donald Trump’s unpopularity limiting his political appeal outside the reddest of red states, Republicans are turning to Nikki Haley to fill the void in leadership.

Haley, who served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nation after being governor of South Carolina, has long been seen as a rising star in the Republican Party.

Politico reported Thursday that Haley, “is emerging as a fundraiser and surrogate for 2020 Republican Senate candidates, and next month will begin zigzagging across the country to campaign for a trio of GOP senators.”

“The former South Carolina governor’s summer itinerary includes a June 15 stop in Boone, Iowa, where Haley will help Sen. Joni Ernst launch her reelection campaign at Ernst’s annual Roast ’n Ride event, where Iowans are slated to grill over 2,000 pounds of pork,” Politico noted.

“Last week, for example, Haley helped raise approximately $500,000 for four female GOP Senate candidates — Martha McSally of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine, Shelly Moore Capito of West Virginia, and Iowa’s Ernst — at a New York City fundraiser hosted by Annie Dickerson, a longtime Republican fundraiser and the founder of the GOP aligned political action committee Winning for Women, according to a source familiar with the event,” the story continued.

Haley will also help kick off Capito’s re-election campaign.

And she is planning to help defend Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who is widely considered to be the most vulnerable Republican senator facing re-election in 2020.

“Gardner campaign spokesman Cosey Contres said the campaign invited Haley to Colorado because of ‘her focus on bringing people together’ — something few voters, Republican or Democrat, would say about Trump,” Politico noted.

Singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye, whose album "Love and Forgiveness" was named as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2013 by American Songwriter, has penned an epic ballot dedicated to President Donald Trump.

It was reported Sunday that Trump was rushed to the White House bunker on Friday evening as a few hundred protesters surrounded the building. As the weekend progressed, more and more protesters have come to stand in opposition to police violence and a White House they feel isn't doing enough to stop it.

Trump has tried to claim that he was really just "inspecting" the bunker, but it went down like a lead balloon.

‘Trump became what we feared’: New Lincoln Project ad accuses Trump of using the Bible as a prop to boost his polls

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.

"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."
