INHO, this makes a lot of sense. The purpose of the NRSC to to get pubbie Senators elected. Especially incumbents, since that’s usually much easier than a newbie.
However, that does NOT mean I agree with the NRSC. McConnell needs to go, as does Boehner. Neither of them comes close to my mental model of a “conservative, small government, low taxes, more freedoms, less regulations” candidate.
I’d gladly vote for Matt Bevin if I could. Instead, I’ll happily vote against linda graham in the primary.
People in KY revere McC, but no on knows why.
People in SC would still be voting for Strom if he were alive at 112.
