Not wanting the American people to make the connection between the border wall and white nationalism, the Republicans attempt to force racist Congressman Steve King, the wall’s biggest proponent, from the House

I guess we should just be happy that the Republicans have finally decided to turn on Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa.

It’s being reported today that the Republican party is pulling their financial support for Michigan Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land, and reallocating their dollars to other races around the country which are felt to be more winnable.
