Senate Republicans’ Flawed Candidates on Full Display as GOP Infighting Continues to Escalate

This week, as Senate Republicans’ flawed candidates continued to brawl in “increasingly crowded” and “contested” primaries, their “intraparty rifts” and candidates’ vulnerabilities were once again on full display in races across the map. 

 

  • In Michigan, the already “caustic” and “radioactive” Republican “Senate showdown” got messier with the entrance of yet another Republican candidate, Sandy Pensler. Also this week, a new report from American Journal News details Peter Meijer’s “litany of staunch anti-abortion positions” during his time in Congress, including co-sponsoring legislation that would “ban abortion without exceptions,” and “repeatedly vot[ing] against and criticizing the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that would protect abortion access in all 50 states.”


  • In Wisconsin, new reporting from the Washington Examiner highlights that “the NRSC has a problem on its hands — one too many wealthy businessmen are interested in the race,” which “would force Republicans to navigate a damaging and costly primary… something they wanted to avoid at all costs.” The article details that Scott Mayer took shots at the NRSC and their preferred candidate Eric Hovde, saying that “the NRSC does not elect you.” “People in Wisconsin elect you.”
