Greg Raths...The Comeback Kid!
If Republicans are poised to take back the House in a "yuge" Red Wave, wouldn't it be better to do it without Never Trump/RINO candidates, even if we lose a few seats? From Young Kim and David Valadao in California to Liz Cheney in Wyoming to Nancy Mace in South Carolina, let's finally show those RINOs that this is the "America First" MAGA Party!
That message might be getting out even in very blue California. Recently, the California Republican Assembly (CRA), founded in 1935, held its Orange and San Diego Counties' convention to vote on endorsements. In the new congressional 40th District, CRA endorsed "America First" MAGA candidate Greg Raths over NeverTrump incumbent Young Kim.
That's a "yuge" endorsement! MAGA Greg Raths over NeverTrump Young Kim!
As we enter primary season, MAGAs must not be afraid of supporting "America First" MAGA candidates, even if state and county GOPs are fawning over establishment candidates. As [Deborah] Pauly pointed out:
"If the Red Wave nationally is as predicted, this is the best time for true conservatives to take a stand here in California and stop adding to the swamp in Washington D.C."
