Former President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are feuding again as the Republican Party combats another circular firing squad. In a race which, according to an ABC11 interview with Chris Christie, is “emblematic of where we want to go as a party,” North Carolina Republican U.S. Senate candidates have been awfully quiet about where they stand.
- Earlier this year, Budd and Walker “sidestepped questions” about who they would vote for as GOP Leader. Several months later, Budd is “sticking with [the] same talking point,” despite now being the Trump-endorsed candidate.
- McCrory “declined [to] comment” altogether.
“The power struggle in the Republican Party is another example of how Trump continues to escalate and intensify this GOP primary, but Budd, McCrory, and Walker can’t hide from these questions forever,” said NCDP spokesperson Kate Frauenfelder.
