Who was expecting this?
In an insane turn of events, Republican Senator Marco Rubio dropped a bombshell on the Republican Party and suggested for there to be a delay in the Senate leadership vote.
This demand from Rubio suggests that he and other Republicans could be trying to replace Republican Senator Mitch McConnell who Trump has said is bad for the party.
According to Fox, In a new Twitter post Rubio wrote, “The Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed. First we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities & values of the working Americans (of every background) who gave us big wins in states like #Florida.”
Rubio isn’t the only one who has suggested that McConnell be replaced.
Several Republican Senate candidates have called for McConnell’s removal including Sen.-elect Eric Schmitt.
Another prominent Republican calling for McConnell’s removal is also Josh Hawley.
Hawley attack McConnell and said, “Exactly right. I don’t know why Senate GOP would hold a leadership vote for the next Congress before this election is finished. We have a runoff in #GASenate – are they saying that doesn’t matter? Don’t disenfranchise @HerschelWalker.”
Republican Sen. Cynthia Lummis also endorsed Marco Rubio’s tweet and wrote that she supported the idea.
