Republican Trashes Own Party
Recently on CNN, former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) demanded that the GOP “shun” the “conspiratorial fringe element of the party” and move forward from Trump.
According to Breitbart, Flake stated, “I do believe … that most Republicans out there want to get back to a party that believes in ideas, the kind that Paul Ryan described. But that subset of a subset of Republican voters that vote in primaries in droves still, you know, when they talk about let’s move on away from this commission or away from all of this, what happened in the last election, we still have in Arizona a Republican Party doing a recount of the 2020 election.”
“So, too many Republicans don’t want to move on, and I would just ask people, I mean Republicans, do you want to be the party of Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene or one more of where Paul Ryan is? And the Paul Ryan kind of wing of the party is the one that can grow and actually be a majority party in the future,” Flake continued. “You know, the other party can win a few elections here or there, but we’ll lose over time. And Republicans, until we want to start winning elections, we’re going to have to, you know, shun this conspiratorial fringe element of the party. That’s all there is to it. And that includes the former president.”
