“Top Republicans warned Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) that he was sabotaging his career. Supercharged fundraising numbers in his GOP primary race show they may have been on to something.” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“The Kentucky Republican, who angered President Trump when he forced House members to return to D.C. to pass the $2 trillion stimulus bill, is now back home in Garrison, Ky., fighting to stay in Congress ahead of the state’s June primary. Lawmakers of both parties called him reckless, and President Trump termed him a ‘third rate Grandstander’ and said he should be kicked out of the GOP.”
Said Massie: “I thought I might be signing my political death sentence. But I did it for principled reasons.”Save to Favorites
