Bannon-backed PAC backs Wisconsin, Arizona Senate candidates

Bannon-backed PAC backs Wisconsin, Arizona Senate candidates

He has said he plans to recruit challengers for every GOP senator up for re-election next year except Ted Cruz of Texas.

"I believe Jeff Flake is as principled a conservative as there is", Rubio said in an interview.

"Depends on who you're talking about".

In 2016, Great America PAC raised more than $30 million in support of Trump. "But you had a few people that really disappointed us. They really, really disappointed us", he said.

Asked about Bannon's war in a cabinet meeting on Monday, President Trump replied, "I know how he feels".

Bannon has also said he aims to see Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dumped while getting the president's agenda, including the dismantling of the 2010 Affordable Care Act and major tax cuts, enacted.

"I like Steve a lot".

"Steve is doing what Steve thinks is the right thing", he said. "Some of the people that he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we talk him out of that, because, frankly, they're great people". "What Mitch will tell you is that, maybe with the exception of a few - and that is a very small few - I have a fantastic relationship with the people in the Senate, and with the people in Congress". They've all left you.


For his part, McConnell said he prioritizes electability over ideological purity. Luther Strange. Strange, who lost, was backed by McConnell and Trump.

"They're not in the Senate".

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sought to project unity Monday amid continuing tensions that threaten to complicate the Republican Party's fall agenda and midterm elections strategy.

The bare-bones tax blueprint issued last month by Trump and Republican leaders lacks critical details, and two of the Democrats said it was premature to consider compromises.

Taken together, the slate of endorsements so far suggests that Bannon and his allies will be playing in a mix of open Republican primary contests - with the end goal of challenging incumbent Democrats - as well as supporting some primary challenges to sitting GOP senators.

"I've had tough primaries nearly every time I've run, mostly because of the position I've taken on immigration", he told The Associated Press in an interview after his own Scottsdale fundraiser last week.

With McConnell standing mostly silent by his side, Trump eagerly fielded a volley of questions about Puerto Rico, protests by National Football League players during the national anthem, Hillary Clinton and special prosecutor Robert S. Mueller III's investigation into Russian election meddling - at times overshadowing the effort to display a message of unity that kicked off their appearance.

Trump said the stakes are high. We've had other things happen. "We're fighting for lower taxes". For that reason, it's key to helping offset the steep tax-rate cuts for businesses and individuals that are called for in the GOP tax framework.
