Donald Trump is now out of power, but that doesn’t mean his mark hasn’t been left on the Republican party. Nearly every day, people like Paul Gosar, Jim Jordan, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert pull the GOP closer to Trump.
While many more moderate members of the party have left, some still want to save it. And during a Sunday appearance on CNN, former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock laid out a plan to get rid of two controversial members.
Comstock told CNN:
“Both Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Greene have Republican women who are running against them in the primary. I’m on two PACs that support Republican women who we specifically do not support Marjorie Greene or Lauren Boebert, and you know, even — those are very red districts, you’re going to end up with a Republican. You can have a conservative Republican woman without having a crazy, you know, very unpleasant, you know, nasty, you know, unconscionable congressperson who, by the way, neither of these women are getting anything done in Congress for their constituents. Zippo, nothing. These women aren’t doing anything of help to the country, and they’re divisive, and they are dangerous.”
