Former U.S. Attorney John Wood stepped down as lead investigator for the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 this summer to launch an independent Senate bid in Missouri. Wood is a close friend of the Cheney family and formerly worked in the second Bush administration with stints at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Wood’s Senate campaign is now being financed by another alumnus of the Bush administration, former Missouri Sen. John Danforth, who was President Bush’s ambassador to the United Nations between 2004 and 2005. In July, Danforth’s super PAC launched a $750,000 dollar ad blitz and announced plans to raise anywhere from $20 to $40 million for the fall campaign.
So, a former Republican senator and Bush administration official is going to try and raise $40 million. He will not use this money to help flip blue seats in Georgia and Arizona. He will not use this money to protect vulnerable Republican seats in North Carolina or Pennsylvania. Instead, he will force the Republican Party to expend resources defending what should be a safe Republican senate seat in Missouri.
The pattern of Never-Trumpers openly supporting Democrats demonstrates that they are not principled conservatives. They are a Democrat fifth column embedded in Republican ranks, who will undermine the party’s chances at every opportunity.Published in
