The feud between former President Donald Trump and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shows no signs of slowing down, and a McConnell ally on Thursday said the former president was to blame for costing Republicans the Senate.
Scott Jennings, a CNN political commentator who has also worked on McConnell's Senate campaigns, told the network that it's clear that Trump was to blame for his party's losses in the two Georgia Senate runoff elections.
"It's pretty clear what happened: a whole bunch of Trump people didn't turn out because, shockingly, they were listening to Donald Trump when he told them their votes didn't count anymore," Jennings said. "It was a sabotage and it was obvious to anybody who has even a little bit of political professional expertise."
Jennings went on to say that the Republican Party cannot win if it simply becomes a Donald Trump personality cult.
"It's pretty clear that Donald Trump overall was a net drag on the Republicans because we don't control anything now," he said. "He lost the White House, and that was before January the 6th. And so what I think the party has to do is find a way to hold the coalition together."
