McConnell vows to intervene in primaries 

Establishment GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell has told the Wall Street Journal that he plans to openly intervene in Republican US Senate primaries in 2022.  Of cpirse., je jas beem doing that for years, but more behind the scenes.  Now that he is coming out of the closeet on it, conservatives will see a lot more opposition from McConnell, who often collaborates with Democrats against conservatives.  A few years ago, when McConnell vowed to "crush them everywhere", he was talking about conservatives in his own party, not Democrats.
North Carolina has a Senate primary in 2022.  Our two present spineless establishment hacks in the Senate, Burr and Tillis, both of whom have been weak campaigners, are examples of the kind of candidate McConnell promotes.  He has pushed both of them in past elections.  We do not need to be stuck with another lousy McConnell type candidate.
The polls show Lara Trump the clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination if she runs. Wishy-washy failure Pat McCrory is a distant second.
North Carolinians need to tell Boss McConnell that North Carolinians choose our senate candidates, not political bosses from Washington, DC.
This is the same weasel Mitch McConnell who joined the Democrats in trying to blame President Trump for "inciting" the Capitol riot but has refused to blame the Democrats for the election fraud in November.
McConnell needs to be overthrown as Senate GOP leader just as weasel Boehner was in the House.
