Republican House leadership clashed in closed-door meeting as the GOP worries about fundraising in battle for Congress

Published

After losing control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterms, Republicans have said they are focused on winning back the chamber in 2020. But differing priorities boiled over during a leadership meeting.

“Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the No. 3 House Republican, privately battled with the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), where she raised questions about the direction of the party’s campaign arm as they try to win back the chamber,” Politico reported Tuesday.

“Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota used a members’ only leadership meeting Monday night to press lawmakers about their contributions to the party committee. At one point, he questioned whether Cheney would continue to contribute campaign cash to the NRCC, according to multiple sources,” the publication noted. “Cheney, the House Republican Conference chair who outranks Emmer, fired back that she has met her fundraising benchmarks and paid her party dues.”

Cheney then reportedly trashed the direction of the NRCC under Emmer’s leadership.

“The Wyoming Republican — who is mulling a Senate bid after Sen. Mike Enzi declared his retirement — countered that some members are concerned Emmer is artificially inflating the fundraising numbers he brings in, according to sources. Cheney also told Emmers that some lawmakers are worried about the campaign arm’s general strategy going forward as it seeks to rebuild the GOP’s fortunes in 2020,” Politico noted.

On Tuesday, Never Trump conservative and The Bulwark editor Charlie Sykes wrote an editorial in Politico warning that Democrats could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2020 — and urged them to not do anything foolish.

"Donald Trump remains historically unpopular because the past three years have cemented the public’s image of the president as a deeply dishonest, erratic, narcissistic, Twitter-addicted bully. As a result, a stunning 57 percent of voters say they will definitely not vote to reelect him next year and he trails Democratic challengers in key states," wrote Sykes.

Rosie O'Donnell took some shots at Meghan McCain for her recent behavior on "The View."

The former co-host left about two years before McCain joined the five-woman panel in October 2017, and O'Donnell said she should show more respect to the show's veterans, reported Hollywood Life.

“I do have some compassion for her," O'Donnell said, referring to the loss of her father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). "Although I wish she wouldn’t be mean to Joy Behar, who is like a living legend and who should be respected for no other reason than she’s the elder statesman in the room.”

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
