McConnell Takes Aim At Trump “In The Next Cycle, We’ll Have Quality Candidates”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took aim at former President Donald Trump on Tuesday for the Republican party's "Red Wave" that failed to come to fruition.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took aim at former President Donald Trump on Tuesday for the Republican party’s “Red Wave” that failed to come to fruition.

McConnell said that the influence of Trump’s endorsements limited the ability of the party to choose better nominees.

“Our ability to control the primary outcome was quite limited in 2022 because of the support of the former president. Hopefully, in the next cycle, we’ll have quality candidates everywhere,” said McConnell.

“Hopefully in the next cycle, we’ll have quality candidates everywhere and a better outcome,” he added.

McConnell referenced the candidacies of Blake Masters in Arizona and Don Bolduc in New Hampshire, two candidates who won their primaries with Trump’s support, only to lose to their Democratic opponents in November.

“I do think we had an opportunity to relearn, one more time: you have to have quality candidates to win competitive Senate races,” McConnell said.

Following the Democrat’s midterm win and maintaining Senate control, Trump went on the attack.

“It’s Mitch McConnell’s fault. Spending money to defeat great Republican candidates instead of backing Blake Masters and others was a big mistake,” Trump said Sunday. “Giving 4 Trillion Dollars to the Radical Left for the Green New Deal, not Infrastructure, was an even bigger mistake. He blew the Midterms, and everyone despises him and his otherwise lovely wife, Coco Chow.”

With Democrats maintaining Senate control, this keeps the path open for Biden to have his judicial and administrative appointments confirmed.
