This is one of many videos circulating after Congressman Elissa Slotkin announced that she would support impeachment.
It hardly shows the overall sense of what is going on in the 8th congressional district, but it does reveal that the Democrats do not care that they are committing political suicide. That is an interesting take-away from all of this.
The hatred for Donald Trump from the left is all consuming and irrational. It allows them to ignore the illegalities of their own players, and pretend that the legitimate actions of our commander in chief somehow have earned removal from office.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. It will surely guarantee that he is reelected as well as carry Trump supporting republicans into office once again.
There will be more of this. And there isn’t a legislator in our nation (like Slotkin) who can say after the fact that they were not at least warned.
The Tea Party Express is one of those PAC groups that knows how to throw a party.
Typically they will show up for Tea Type Republican candidates in congressional races, put on a performance, and raise money for advertising and campaign ‘assistance.’ Our own experiences in Michigan have certainly been colored by their visits to our communities, and in Traverse City in 2010, we pulled off a 2200 plus person event that was able to celebrate the departure announcement of Democrat congressman Bart Stupak.
We now know they are looking at State Representative Tom McMillin who properly represents traditional conservative views; those most deeply held by most in the ‘Tea’ movement. An Email blast from the TPX advertises their discussion:
“In this week’s “On the Campaign Trail” podcast, we are joined by Tom McMillin. Tom discusses his campaign for U.S. Congress in Michigan’s 8th district where he hopes to fill the vacant seat left by retiring Republican Mike Rogers.“
US Congressman Mike Rogers is putting away his legislative pen.
Its apparently time to move on the the graveyard of political careers. The land of political punditry; broadcaster Nirvana. Talk Radio. The Detroit News Reports
The seven-term Howell Republican’s announcement comes less than a month before the filing deadline — and is the third major departure for the state’s congressional delegation following the decisions of Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn, and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Detroit, to retire. Last year, Rogers opted not to pursue Levin‘s seat, despite pressure from fellow Republicans, to focus on his job overseeing the Intelligence committee.
This of course presents yet another opportunity for a Michigan conservative pickup in the 8th congressional district. It also can go the other way if a decent candidate is NOT found by April 22, which is Michigan’s filing deadline for the Aug 5 primary.
