Sen. Roy Blunt’s (R-MO) announcement this morning that he won’t seek a third term next year “marks yet another blow to the governing wing of the GOP,” Politico reports.
“The race to replace Blunt gives Trumpworld yet another opportunity to mold the GOP in the former president’s image. Looming large over the burgeoning primary battle is former Gov. Eric Greitens (R), who resigned in 2018 amid a torrent of personal and official scandal. But we’ve noticed Greitens reemerging in recent months, particularly on Trump-friendly media outlets, like Steve Bannon’s podcast.”Save to Favorites
