Senator Mitch McConnell has endorsed candidates that follow the swamp’s agenda, not the will of the people. We in Florida remember when, on the same day that Charlie Crist announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Senator Mitch McConnell endorsed him.
McConnell did not want the people of Florida to choose their senator, rather he wanted the people of Florida to elect his pick.
CNN’s Mark Preston and Peter Hamby in May 2009 reported:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, endorsed Florida Gov. Charlie Crist for Senate Tuesday, yet another sign that national Republicans are looking to avoid a GOP primary in the Sunshine State.
Crist announced earlier in the day that he would not seek another term as governor, opting instead for a senatorial bid. National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn immediately announced that he was backing Crist over former state House Speaker Marco Rubio in the GOP primary.

“Decisions are being made every day in Washington that have a direct impact upon the lives of all Americans and we need Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate to ensure that those decisions will benefit the citizens of Florida,” McConnell said in a statement released by Crist’s campaign. [Emphasis added]
We all know now that Charlie Crist, once a Republican, is now a Democrat member of Congress. So much for the political savvy of Mitch McConnell.
Now we have the very same McConnell supporting another Charlie Crist republican in the state of Alabama.
“President Donald Trump admitted to Alabama voters Friday that he might have made a mistake by endorsing appointed Alabama Senator Luther Strange in the Republican primary.
“’We have to be loyal in life,’ Trump said. ‘There is something called loyalty, and I might have made a mistake and I’ll be honest, I might have made a mistake.’
“Trump appeared in Alabama for a campaign rally for Strange, despite polling showing him still lagging behind his primary challenger conservative Judge Roy Moore.
“Trump predicted that if Strange lost, his political opponents and the media would cite it as a big loss for Trump, but that he wanted to repay the appointed senator for his loyal support in the Senate.
“’Both are good men,’ Trump said, referring to Strange and Moore.
“He specified that his decision was about loyalty and picking a candidate that could win in a general election.
“’Luther will definitely win … Roy has a very good chance of not winning in the general election,’ Trump said.
“But he promised that if Moore won the primary, he would be ‘campaigning like hell’ for him in the general election.”
Watch this video to understand that its deja vu all over again:
Judge Roy Moore is the right man at the right time. He will work to make Alabama and America great again.
