Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott was uninvited from a Republican leadership press conference on Tuesday. This comes after the senator announced he would be challenging Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
Scott announced his run against McConnell, stating:
“I’m writing to you today because I believe it’s time for the Senate Republican Conference to be far more bold and resolute than we have been in the past. We must start saying what we are for, not just what we are against.”
“I do not believe we can simply continue to say the Democrats are radical, which they are. Republican voters expect and deserve to know our plan to promote and advance conservative values.”
Rick Scott is a member of the Senate GOP leadership team and he usually appears alongside McConnell and other GOP leaders at news conferences. Scott claims that McConnell’s team intentionally uninvited him due to his challenge.
Sen. Scott is playing off a wave of frustration with establishment Republicans who have offered no platform for voters.
As Scott points out, Republicans like McConnell spend all of their political capital on pushing tax cuts, which don’t get me wrong are great and calling the Dems radical.
McConnel needs challenged. It has been his way, not the people’s way, for too long.
