Katherine Jenerette has a great back ground but she is too mired in her Husband’s nasty divorce to be considered a candidate. Some really nasty lies and accusations that could be used by the ‘Rats if she was ever in a primary fight.His Ex would probably piss herself with glee to be used against her.
It’s really unfair but that’s reality.
It's always a concern, but it's also a reality that this can be not only easily overcome, but turned into an advantage - e.g., Nikki Haley had all kinds of vicious lies and accusations thrown against her two years ago, and that only helped her advance in the primary and she went on to easily win the governorship, despite all the gleeful assertions by her detractors that she would be a "gift" to Democrats in the general election.
Trying to avoid so-called "controversy" or "controversial" candidates and playing it "safe" has never served conservatives (and/or Republicans) well; I don't think I have to bring up the [in]famous examples.
Attacks against conservatives, especially TP conservatives, won't stop (Nikki is the subject of the latest IRS and FBI "investigation" rumors) but that's all the more the reason to do everything we can to keep electing them. Once people will see that the Alinsky's tactics backfire, the "game" should change "radically" in our favor.
