29 Burst results for "Republican Caucus"
Fresh update on "republican caucus" discussed on Townhall Weekend Journal
"GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell remains in firm control of the Republican caucus in the Senate. He's a sharp patient and transparent as ever, still working on an agenda of freedom and growth across America. Earlier this week, we spoke in our conversation made national news. We discussed his 2016 decision to keep Antonin Scalia's seat open after the late Great Justice died unexpectedly in February of that year, even before President Barack Obama nominated now Attorney General Merrick Garland to fill that vacancy. Senator McConnell had declared that there would be no hearings and no votes regardless of who is nominated much of the media and nearly all the Democrats portrayed. That decision is a betrayal of the system and that was wrong. We talked about that decision and clarified whether or not he'd do it again. But Senator McConnell does not back down under pressure and he signaled, yes. In fact, if he's back in charge, the same McConnell rule will apply. Here's our conversation from the Hugh Hewitt Show. It's been five years since the Terrible day February, 13th of Justice Scalia died, But on the same day he took the most significant decision in Con law. Since Brown V board, which is a good decision, and Roe v. Wade, which was an awful decision when you said the American people should have a voice in the selection there next Supreme Court Therefore this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president. Had you not done. So it's my view that President Trump would not have been elected and we wouldn't have justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett. Now you occasionally get heat from the right. Among the more populist people and some of the folks in my business, does it does it just chap you that they do not bring up that the court in the Constitution would be in quick sand up to its neck? If you had not taken the position you did five years ago, and we did not have the court that we do today where we're looking forward and not in fear at a series of decisions this year and next. Well, look, You can't pay the Republican later the Senate not taking a few slings and arrows, but.
Marjorie Taylor Greene says Republican Party is Trump’s and ‘doesn’t belong to anyone else’
"Jonathan the Republicans in the House of Representatives this week voted in just in the last day voted not to take away committee assignments from Marjorie. Taylor Greene, conspiracy theorist of someone who's made deeply disturbing statements. They left it to the full house, meaning Democrats took that vote, she said. Green said today that it didn't really bother her that committees don't matter. And besides, it's Donald Trump's party anyway. Is she right? Well, she's right in that it's Donald Trump's party. But she's wrong about the fact that it doesn't matter. It does matter. And if she doesn't think committee assignments are being assigned to a committee matters, then she shouldn't be in government. She should resign her seat if she doesn't believe that, sitting on a committee, doing the work of being an elected representative and representing your constituents in Congress. If that doesn't matter, then perhaps you should go back to Georgia. But this is indeed Donald Trump's party, and we saw it with the votes that were taken within the Republican caucus. Marjorie Taylor Greene was able to hold on to her committee seat because the vote was a public vote. Within the caucus, Liz Cheney was able to hold on to her to her leadership post within the Republican caucus because that vote was a secret ballot, and we talked all last week or all this week about how her hold on her leadership post was tenuous because the base was so angry. The caucus was so angry And yet by secret ballot, she won reelection to that leadership post within the caucus overwhelmingly, so this might be Donald Trump's Republican Party. But behind closed doors within the Republican caucus, at least says it's playing out in the house. There are some tensions there.
Mitch McConnell to rebuke GOP challenge to certify Electoral College vote
"Members of congress will meet today to certify the electoral college results showing joe biden won the presidential election but was normally a formality has taken on some political drama as several lawmakers are expected to raise objections. We've reported the maneuver isn't expected to change the outcome. But there still could be a long term impact for more. I want to bring in national political reporter. Allies collins into the conversation was a good morning. Highmark elisa based off of your conversations with your sources is there concern of lasting damage some of these lawmakers who may be challenging. The results are brand new. And we'll have to have relationships with their colleagues on both sides of the aisle absolutely. Yes this is revealing a rift in the gop. And it's if you look at it. It's basically new members or members who might have twenty twenty four presidential ambitions or who come from very conservative states like louisiana versus members who've been in the senate for a long time mitch mcconnell. The senate majority leader urged his members not to do this. And it is very unusual for members to break with mitch mcconnell so the fact that some new members a handful of them are coming into the senate and this is one of the first things that they vote for could really cause issues within the republican caucus in the senate so what about the conversations within the parties. I mean specifically the republican party as you mentioned. Some republican leaders are encouraging their colleagues to retreat. Others not so much. There's a lot of concern and frustration with republicans. There are a handful of republicans who are up for reelection in two thousand twenty two in competitive states and they feel like their colleagues in possibly their ambitions. You know josh hawley of missouri. Ted cruz of texas are two names that keep popping up as people who they feel like are basically putting own interests their ambitions for twenty twenty four presidential runs they have not announced presidential runs. I have to be clear but they are two names that have been talked about possibly running in two thousand twenty four. They feel like they're omissions are putting themselves ahead of their colleagues and some of these senators up in two thousand twenty. Two are worried that they're basically going to have to either vote against the president who is still very popular with the party and possibly get a primary challenger from the right or you know vote with the president and hurt their chances in a general election in a state that is competitive and so there is a lot of frustration within the party. And that's what mitch. Mcconnell tried to urge republicans you know not to do. He basically said you'll be putting your colleagues you know endanger and they're just are you know about a dozen senators who basically ignored that message and for whatever reason decided that they are going to side with the president on this. Is there anything taking place. Maybe not so much in the public view to try and instill some stability and uniformity. So there were a lot of conversations. I think at this week people have really come out and made their decisions and said what they want to say and there are some real accusations out there especially with some of the senators who have said that they will vote against these efforts. You know they said my job is to defend the constitution. Some people are accusing their colleagues and their political ambitions over following the constitution. Now you know it's the daily reminder that there is no evidence of widespread fraud so it's really important to note that these dozen senators who are objecting. In over one hundred house members are objecting in states where there is no evidence of widespread fraud. The president has challenge this in many times in the courts. Been shot down and so there was a lot of conversations behind the scenes and concern initially but now many people have come out and said which way they'll vote and allies as you know from being in washington. The ratification of the electoral votes is ceremonial but d. c. is bracing for protests. Right this is something. President trump has urged his supporters to come to washington. He's really played up the day. You know making. It seem almost like the election will be overturned Which you know. We have no indication that that is possible worth talking about the split within the republican party. Of course no. Democrat is likely to stand with the president on this but Thousands of supporters have come to washington the mayor law enforcement in dc are urging residents to stay away. There's concern of violence And so we don't know exactly what's going to happen but we know that thousands of people are already in dc. Supporting the president on
Young Republicans: The new climate activists? Maybe.
"Know the polling says young Republicans want climate action. But it's the public shift from party leaders that I just find hard to believe. The Republicans have ridiculed climate science installed climate action for more than a decade. Do you believe these new messages from party leaders for real yes definitely. I think this is real. The question is to what effect clearly something new is happening. I've had a number of conversations with folks who work on the hill who all say the same thing that Republicans are talking really differently about this issue behind closed doors fewer and fewer of them are rejecting the science. And they're feeling real public pressure to talk about it. We're GONNA hear about why later on in the show and now this is playing out publicly. So you've got Republican leadership saying they're gonNA put together this package of bills to address emissions and there is of course a lot of skepticism which you address but there's no doubt there's a shift happening both in private and in public. Yeah you know. I've got some strong feelings on on this which I'm happy to share. But first let's hear from a reporter. Who spent a lot of time figuring out what's up with? Republicans on the issue of climate. Change Amy harder is a climate and energy reporter with axios. She's been covering the issue for well over a decade at the National Journal Than The Wall Street Journal and now at Axios. She broke the story of the new Republican climate. Push and our co host. Jeff Nesbit sat down with amy to unpack it so it it does feel like there has been a shift. I mean you know you talk to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. He says that he has private conversations with Republican. Senators all the but there's been a public shift for Republicans On climate fairly recently. Are you seeing that in your reporting? Well we're starting to see them. I've described it as coming back in from the cold because this isn't where the Republican Party has always been so you're seeing them number one acknowledge that climate change is a real problem That deserves some sort of response now. There's a huge debate about how big that response should be. But in general You're not seeing comments from lawmakers particularly in the House that are really out there on left field when it comes to the science. I recently sat down with three top. Republicans House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Congressman Graves of Louisiana. I'm in Congressman Westerman A Republican from Arkansas Ed. There was this interesting Exchange Between Westerman and graves when Western said something that didn't really fit with the scientific consensus of climate change. I immediately saw graves jump in and clarify so. There is a very acute concern within the Republican Party. That at the very least they don't want to fight the science and this is of course a long ways away from where Democrats and a lot of the public and corporations are but nonetheless it is a shift to stop fighting the science. So let's let's let's dive into that a little bit. What's in those new proposals from some of the house? Republicans I would say there's three main components of the Republicans plan which is to be introduced over the coming weeks and months the first one has to do with capturing carbon emissions from variety of sources. So that can be by planting more trees in in theory that would capture more carbon the other tube Parts of this plan include a ramping up clean. Energy Technologies and clean energy technology exports so giving special tax treatment to companies that export clean energy important here to note that the definition of clean energy is of course very much in the eye of the beholder. Republicans are in Wide Agreement. That NATURAL GAS. Which is the cleanest burning fossil fuel but still very much a fossil fuel with the climate impact? That counts is clean energy so expediting pipelines for example to move natural gas as part of their clean energy plan. Which a lot of Democrats and many in environmentalists would take issue with and then the third pillar is actually not directly related to climate change but more focused on plastic pollution And so this would give foreign aid to countries in Asia and Africa which is actually where most of the most polluted rivers are with plastic. The climate angle is that oil natural gas at the bedrock aplastic. So there's that connection So those those are the three main components and I've pressed McCarthy in Western and graves on this asking them if they have some sort of goal reduction goal of emissions at they hope to achieve the the answer to that is no that they sort of reject. This idea graves used the term arbitrary targets. I think most experts say having some sort of goal is good for trying to achieve any sort of outcome. I think time will tell. The devil is in the details to see if they can really say that they'll be any sort of concrete reduction of emissions with these policies. Which is of course the whole goal. So what so? What are you seeing learning behind the scenes that that that might explain? What's driving this chain change? Why is this happening now? I think one really compelling arguments that Republicans are being receptive to. Is this idea of course that it all comes down to politics that they've been given a polling that shows younger. Republican voters are really not liking. How their leaders are disavowing? The science they want their Republican leaders to at the very least acknowledged the science and put forward a range of relatively moderate policies. And so I think that's really driving them and and people often say they're just doing this for political purposes and that seems like a throwaway line but in fact compared to where we were a decade ago. I think it's quite significant. That Republicans see climate has not acting on climate change as a political liability. And that's an incredibly important shifts because the politics do need to shift when it comes to climate change if there's ever going to be big policy so what's what's the reaction to these proposals I within the Republican caucus but then also among their colleagues on the democratic side. Stephanie been all over the map. You have some environmentalists and Democrats that think that this is just another way to deny science another way to keep stonewalling big action and then you have other Democrats. I think con- Congressman. Paul Tonko is a good example Democrat from New York. They see this movement as not enough but definitely better than nothing and a big shift from a few years ago. I interviewed Jason Grandma. The president of the bipartisan Policy Center. Who has been integral in a lot of these debates and while he described the big emphasis on trees as quote aggressive gardening he also applauded the Republicans for making this shift. What Jason Grandma also said is that Democrats environmentalists should not chide these Republicans for not doing enough yet because it's a process and although it certainly not moving fast enough for some for some critics that it's certainly moving so what what is climate looked like as a voting issue in two thousand twenty and beyond and will that have an impact on the Republican. Party's outlook on this issue. So I posted a question recently to Frank Luntz. Many people may know him as Well known Republican pollster so. I posed the question to him about are these Republican policies about trees and plastic and clean energy technologies. Is that going to be enough to convince voters? And he says while trees are great. Voters are going to want more and I'll be interested to see if that's the case. I think you'll have a positive impact from not denying the science but I think as climate change becomes a worse problem. I do think there'll be a call to do more however also note that so far to date. We have not seen voters around the world support big climate policies. And so. That's what I've called the big climate disconnect and. I think that's something that's an open question. Voters say. They're concerned about climate change. But do they really support the big policies? That would actually make a difference and I think the answer to that is is. We don't know
Joe Walsh ends bid for 2020 GOP presidential nomination
"Former congressman Joe Walsh is dropping out of the Republican pride presidential primary he got only one percent of the vote in the Republican caucuses in Iowa president trump got ninety seven percent washes exit leaves just trump and former Massachusetts governor bill weld in the hunt for the Republican
Lessons Learned From The Iowa Caucuses, And Danger Signs Ahead
"I'm encouraging everyone to get out and give a separate the clapper Joe Biden I don't know the results and I with the I know we got rolled over last night he lost the lot he lost third fourth or fifth place we'll figure it out in the course of the day I'm joined by Byron York of the Washington examiner to talk about three things is state of the union tonight the impeachment acquittal tomorrow and the Iowa fiasco last like good morning Byron good morning June which order and were you up all night no I wasn't actually I actually I will I will tell you on our caucus story which is as you know there are a few journalists here in the morning and and all all of them were covering the democratic caucuses so I thought to myself I get here on Thursday in time to go to the president's rally it was clear the president I had a pretty large operation in Iowa and it was not because he was terrified of Joe Walsh or bill weld it was because he was trying to win the general election to get it in the bag while Democrats were still struggling to find their candidate now we didn't know how much how struggling they work so what I did was I went to a Republican caucus last night in Ames Iowa but forty minutes north of the mind and if they did this radical they voted once they counted the votes and I reported the results all my gosh you're kidding me and so it what was interesting you know AT and another thing I did years I I also went to a campaign event from Joe walls the former Republican congressman who is challenging the president does want to see how how this worked out and I don't know if you've seen the results but statewide from one ninety seven point one nine percent of the vote and walls one one point zero eight percent and bill weld on last year's governor one one point two seven percent so so Joe bill Burr Joe beat Bill Joe Walsh rebel our world no no no no bill weld bead Walsall world world up one point two seven percent to Walsh's one point zero eight percent that's got a first test for never come Republican challenges and it did not go well that's got a thing to lose to Bill well I'm sorry Joe Joe used to be on the Salem radio network and and it and so sorry Joe our condolences Byron let's talk a little bit about the hunter gatherer aspect of the trump campaign when it comes to data because I believe that's what the rallies are about I believe that with the caucuses were about the president's gathering that you attended on Tuesday night they are looking for the data they are and and they're also looking to make an impression the for people who might not remember in nineteen eighty four in February of nineteen eighty four Ronald Reagan as president he's headed to a huge reelection he certainly has no we nomination worries and he comes to the moment and that's the point in Waterloo used to rallies on caucus day when the Democrats are trying to choose their candidate and the Democrats are outraged the service is done it is not worthy of a president but Reagan did it and he really kind of took some of the oxygen out of the room for Democrats now Jeff Kaufmann who is the chairman of the Republican Party here and I was set back in June he told president trump about this and you know Mister president and Ronald Reagan did this in the end if growth Democrats not now I think other people probably recommend this as well but sure no problem was here and got in about seven to eight thousand people it great university and would that was far greater than any other Democrat in the event that any Democrat had plus trump brought a long list of circuits his his family cabinet members members of Congress Republican governors I was that the the caucus where Donald Trump junior spoke and they stepped up their social media and as you say they got all the information everybody came to the rally and then of course you have the information for value comes to the to the caucus and by the way they registered to vote a bunch of new people last night as well now they will move on I think yeah election effort but I think that circus will move on to New Hampshire even as the zombie campaign of Biden struggles forward the president tweeted thirty seven minutes ago by right New York the democratic caucus is an unmitigated disaster nothing works just like they ran the country remember the five billion dollars obamacare website that should have cost two percent of that the only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is quote trump close quote I don't think the president's going to allow this to pass I'm remarked upon all day long any may even bring up the state of the union Byron York I would think I would think and and by the way it it does appear that that vice president Biden did not do so well and I did go to his last event in here in deadline before the caucus and I will I will say though just a few things one the the questions about whether he has the vigor required for a long hard campaign those are really open questions that really he's not a high energy campaigner at this point he brought circuit like Chris Dodd and John Kerry which really gave the impression that he is a man of the past not really electrify anybody from the stage with use the most important thing was really interesting you spoke for more than twenty minutes and did not mention any of the Democrats most important issues no healthcare no climate change no gun violence no tops Isshin it was really extraordinary all he talked about without terrible crumple as any displayed no vision for the future beyond bringing things back to how they were when Joe Biden was in office so I you know I think a lot of Democrats look at that campaign is that this is just not working and when we do finally get results from last night we'll probably gonna see that the team by noon put out at five hours ago by bill Russo any campaign saying they wanted putting out in completing numbers is contributing to the chaos and misinformation they would like very much to move on before a fourth or fifth place finish is finalized I don't think they can escape that Byron but let's turn to impeachment I believe there will be an acquittal I don't know if it will be bipartisan do you have any reporting on that I don't I do not have any insight I I do know that efforts to try to censure the president I think you're completely doomed if you remember in nineteen ninety eight there were some Democrats in the Clinton impeachment nine nine or some Democrats who wanted to censure the president and not not impeach him but house Republicans went ahead and impeach the president of course they had a trial and a lot of Democrats who waited he's just been impeached and he had a trial that's a pretty big censure right there so I do not see any Republicans in the Republican supporting the center specially wanted strongly worded as Joe mentioned was circulating yesterday now I also want to make sure I get your reaction Byron I begin the program by saying lord bless and keep Rush Limbaugh I'm a prank I don't know if you are but he the ease the fellow who built the talk radio mall I just got a I'm a tenant like everyone else is I got Nordstrom in that

Alabama, Bill And Senate discussed on Here & Now
"Vote on a strict abortion. Ben, maybe one of the strictest in the country was the first item on the agenda for lawmakers in Alabama state Senate today and immediately became fiery. Now they've delayed that vote at least until next week. Several other states are also limiting abortion rights this week. Georgia became the fourth state to pass a so-called heartbeat. Bill banning an abortion six weeks into a pregnancy. Or when a heartbeat can be heard by doctor it also grants embryos at six weeks and fetuses person hood, Alabama's abortion ban would criminalize doctors who perform the procedure. Andrea Jaeger reporter and hosted WB HMO in Birmingham is on this story. And Andrew we spoke to you last week when state reps past their Bill to Ben pretty much all abortions, with the exception of a serious health risk to the mother. This was senators today what happened and how different is their Bill. Well, there was a small difference in. That's what created that chaos. In the Senate. When this Bill was passed that of a cynic committee yesterday, the senators there added an exception for rape and incest. The original Bill had no exception for rape, and incest, but they added that in and so when this Bill was brought up in the Senate this morning, some Republicans moved to mmediately table that amendment the chair approve that and chaos ensue with with with Democrats objecting to that. And so we had discussions around net procedural issue and coming out of that you had Senate president proteomic Republican state Senator Dole Marsh, he offered this this particular amendment that was just stripped wasn't amendment that I've always wanted on a Bill in any Bill I've ever supported and what I'm going to ask for, and maybe this would be the time is that everybody's go home this weekend. They need to listen to the constituents about this Bill with them without the amendment. We just took off and we need to come back Tuesday. Have extended debate and make that final decision. And that's what I'm going to ask at this point that we care this over to the call of the chair until you deal with this on next Tuesday. That's exactly what they did. He get pretty chaotic before. That though is that a surprise as you've said, this is seems to be if there are Democrats, of course, who wanted the exception for rape, and incest cases. But is it a surprise that you have Republicans as we just heard who also wanted that what we knew going into it that this was a point of contention even within the Republican caucus not all of them were keen with having to build. It didn't have exception. We didn't know is how exactly that was going to be dealt with how it was going to play out. And as we saw this morning at means delay a little little more time to work that out. Well, and talk about you know, because we are seeing this move in many states to bring up these bills, and in most of the states, and people are lawmakers are saying we are hoping that this goes to the courts, we want this to go all the way to the supreme court with two very conservative recent appointees is that the sense in Alabama. And how does it compare to the so-called heartbeat bills? Yeah. That's the supporters of the Bill. Here in Alabama are very explicit that they intend this Bill as a court challenge, they expect it to be challenged and make its way to the federal court system. They hope to the supreme court where the nineteen seventy three Roe v. Wade decision might be reconsidered on paper. It is certainly a stronger Bill than say the heartbeat bills. We've seen in other states because it does we send original form does criminalize abortion in all cases, except for the health of the mother. Opponents would argue though that the heartbeat bills. Functionally are abortion banned because for many women, they don't know at six weeks that they're pregnant, but but regardless of that court challenges most likely are ahead, and that's what proponents of this legislation. Went to see and how are pro choice advocates opponents reacting to the spill don't they're gearing up for the fight as well groups such as Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties union of Alabama promised a lawsuit here in Alabama. If. Does pass.
"republican caucus" Discussed on KTLK 1130 AM
"Republican party, but it's worthwhile. And it kind of sets the stage for the rest of the stuff. We're gonna talk about tonight. So as you may be aware, I we had Jason Rarick win a special election for the state Senate up north of here in the pine city area, the Hinckley area Minnesota and his victory. Creates a vacancy in the house, which he had held. And that's in district eleven be up there. And as you might imagine a district that's been held by Republicans a district. That's anticipated to remain Republican is attracting a lot of interest from potential candidates and a lot of interest from parties who want to make sure that whoever succeeds Jason Rarick goes one way or the other ideologically within the scope of the party. And so to that end. There was a resolution passed on Saturday by delegates of the pine county Republicans and this resolution appears to have well, I'll just read a tale. Read the the therefore be it resolved portion that for house district eleven be the special election that's going to be upcoming to fill the seat vacated by Jason Rarick. Pine county Republicans will only support and recognize in endorsed Republican candidate who intends to affiliate with the House Republican caucus that is officially sanctioned by the Republican party of Minnesota. Now, you might ask yourself. Well, why why do you need to resolve that that doesn't it? May of course, somebody who's an elected Republicans going to affiliate with the House Republican caucus. Well, here's a little background for you. There's more than one House Republican caucus, you may have missed it. But in fact, there is a new House Republican caucus. We have one of its members in studio with us here tonight, Jeremy Munson, and so my first question before we get into the particulars of the pound Pinal county Republican resolution Representative Monson why a new House Republican caucus. What what are you guys do it? Yeah. Well, it's important to know what a caucus is. And a caucus is just a a free association of legislators that meat so two guys talking in the hallway their elected officials elected legislators, they're caucusing over time. There's been many many caucuses right now. There's about twelve caucuses at the capital. There's caucuses that include a house and Senate people like the rural caucus there's the Asian American caucus there. The one I started last year called the Republican farmer labor caucus the difference in our caucus is that we went to the leadership at the capital. The the attorneys and ask for our own staff. We had some issues last year where we we were not allowed to work on legislation that our district's wanted. And when we voted against bills that were supported by the caucus the media people that helped us message to the district. Never refused to help said look you can't vote against the Bill to the caucus supports. And then expect us to help you explain your district's why it's bad vote. So we were frustrated with that. And then the legislative assistance report to the leadership not to you. And so there was some conflict. So we had last year at for me the other members of our caucus for many years, and we asked for our own a lot of staff and every elected house member gets a percentage of an FTE. If you're in the majority, you get like one and a half if you're in the minority you get like point seven eight. So if there's four members we get to have a little over three, fulltime employees. So we have an alleged native assistant for the four of us, and we have a researcher and another research slash constituent services in media person. And as we grow our caucus will be able to add more staff. That's that's the big poke at the other caucus is that we get to work on. Legislation that's important for our districts. We get to do our own messaging, and it sometimes those those the two caucuses will support different legislation or different sides of that. But it's important for us to represent districts, and that's why we're doing this caucus also big donors industry that donates to the House Republican campaign committee. They may block like help block legislation, but we're it's important to know that the party endorses campaign committees. They don't endorse caucuses. There is no re there's no caucus endorsed by the party. So that resolution is false. Okay. Yeah. We're getting into a couple of details here that may not be immediately clear to listeners suffice to say at this point, you have this new Republican caucus of which you are part new House Republican caucus four members who decided that they wanted to break off from the main group in order to have legislative staff resources that they were being denied under the status quo. This could be characterized. I think without objection to to you Rev or from you Representative as a little bit of a rebellion against the the status quo and against the House Republican leadership, and that's fine. Little rebellion. Could be a good thing. The question becomes, you know, why then is are the pine county Republicans? What's the concern that would prompt them to forward this resolution to basically attempt to preclude the endorsement of a candidate who intends Takaoka's with you guys as opposed to as it has been characterized the old House Republican caucus, right? And one of the reasons an additional reason why we left it wasn't just about staff. It was about leadership style. It was also for me as a new is a someone who ran in a special election. I was elected it was a year ago yesterday in a special election. I was endorsed by eighty to eighty two percent of the delegates. But the house ran somebody against me. So they they had their preferred candidate. And so how staff was down door knocking for my primary opponent. They were you know, directly or indirectly allocating resources for the other person's campaign. And it's important. It's important to emphasize. We're talking about elected Republicans and their staff campaigning against an endorsed Republican candidate. Right. And so we brought forward a emotion at at the old House Republican caucus last year. That said guys we spent a hundred thousand dollars or more in resources against endorsed Republican candidates in this last election cycle because it wasn't just me. There was four or five others. We we shouldn't be dividing. We shouldn't have this Republican on Republican violence out there, we need to be uniting in supporting the endorsed the grassroots candidate. Because that's how you build your ground game. That's how the Democrats won. They had thousands of people out there door knocking. We can't win elections by just lit mailing stuff in there. If that was true temple anti would have no we'd have president Jeb Bush radio you need to have grassroots activism, and you need to encourage that growth and allow the delegates to endorse who they want and then everybody unite behind them. So we brought forward a resolution that would change the rules of the caucus of the old caucus to say we will not work against endorse candidates rate. And there was about nine of us out of the fifty nine members that voted. Yes, everybody else voted. No. There was an overwhelming rejection of the endorsement process so to say delegates delegates who support the endorsing process should only support candidates who agreed to go caucus with the. The caucus that doesn't support the endorsement says that was just hip that's that's very hypocritical. All right.
