Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) gained much of his nationwide fame after surviving a shooting by a Democratic domestic terrorist. Now, the President wants the 11-year Congressional veteran to leave Capitol Hill and lead Louisiana as Governor.
This comes from two sources on Air Force One where the President talked to the Congressman earlier this week. According to Axios:
As Trump travelled to southwestern Louisiana on Tuesday with several members of Congress, including Scalise, the president pulled out polling numbers to show Scalise how popular Trump is in Scalise’s home state, according to a source with direct knowledge.
Perhaps Scalise’s brand of Republican politics will translate better at the state level in the executive branch than it has on Capitol Hill. He scores a dismal 33% Liberty Score, second only to the lone Democrat in the state for being the least conservative. He’s clearly popular there, so getting him to take the reins while someone more conservative heads to Washington DC seems like a win-win for everyone.
Personally, I like Scalise, but his politics have been lukewarm from he start.
“Scalise seemed flattered by Trump’s pitch, but politely dismissed the idea, according to a source with direct knowledge. The election is in October and the deadline to enter the race is early August.” – Jonathan Swan
It won’t happen, but it’s good to see the President thinking about more than DC politics. Gaining more control of the states is essential for conservatives as we enter an era in which DC overreach shows no signs of slowing.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
