The fallout from the 2020 presidential election is dividing the Republican party. However, one official says it’s time to put aside those differences and focus on what’s next.
The “Republican Civil War is canceled,” National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Rick Scott declared in a memo to party affiliates, Breitbart reported. The Flordia senator urged party leaders, voters, and donors to unite for the next political battle in the 2022 midterms.
“The Democrats control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives,” Scott warned in his memo. “In other words, they control Washington.”
The memo went on to outline the radical agenda already implemented in the first months of President Joe Biden’s term, including rollbacks on immigration restrictions, the destruction of thousands of jobs, and funding for abortion in foreign countries, among other diasterous policies. “And they have built an amazing military-style wall around the US Capitol, at the same time they are stopping construction on the wall at our southern border,” Scott said.
“Looking backward won’t help us win,” his statement continued. “Let us look forward and fix our eyes on what is important – an America with plenty of good-paying jobs, an America with great schools and safe communities, an America with freedoms and liberties people around the world would die for,” Scott said.
“The only way we can lose is if we stop ourselves by needlessly fracturing,” he said. “Again, now is not the time. Save it for another day,” Scott urged. “The Republican Civil War is now canceled.”
Scott didn’t mince words about what was at stake. “You and I are being called upon to rescue our nation from a socialist experiment that always has a tragic finale, an ending that involves loss – loss of prosperity, loss of freedom and loss of life,” Scott said. “Let’s work together, let’s focus forward, and let’s get to work to create the America our families want and deserve,” he concluded.
Scott’s already building his strategy around regaining two seats that were lost to Democrats in the last election. In Arizona, Sen. Mark Kelly was elected to finish out John McCain’s term after his passing, and Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock was elected via special election runoff to complete the term for a retiring Republican senator. The next official to win in 2022 will serve the complete six-year term.
If Republicans continue the in-fighting and fracture the party, Democrats could exploit that division to retain control of the government. Splitting up the party will split up the vote, essentially rolling out the red carpet for every leftist politician out there. The GOP can’t afford to lose future elections to Democrats — and neither can America.
