GOP’s Big Fear Is Trump Will Shut Down the Government

Politico: “Senate Republicans didn’t put too many questions to President Donald Trump when he joined them for lunch on Tuesday, but the party’s most vulnerable incumbent did make one big ask: Please, Nevada Sen. Dean Heller pleaded, don’t shut down the government over funding for a border wall before the midterm elections.”

“Picking that fight during an election season would hurt Republicans at the ballot box, Heller told Trump… Though Heller prefaced his request by heaping praise on the president, Trump was noncommittal. ‘We’ll see what happens,’ he told the group.”
