Washington is in chaos.
All hell is breaking loose.
And a civil war broke out because of one letter that made a huge declaration.
Indiana Senator Mike Braun became the latest Republican to announce his intention to oppose RINO Mitch McConnell’s bid for another term leading the GOP in the Senate.
I ran for Senate because we need OUTSIDERS to take on the D.C. swamp and get RESULTS. Hoosier conservative Republicans are sick and tired of the status quo. I’m proud to support my friend and fellow conservative outsider @SenRickScott for our Leader.

Conservatives were frustrated for years with McConnell.
But it was McConnell sabotaging the midterm elections by pulling funding from conservative candidates and depressing the Trump base by caving in to Joe Biden on the largest gun control power grab in 30 years and the Green New Deal that many blamed for these disappointing results in the midterm elections.
And with polls showing just seven percent of Americans having a favorable view of McConnell some Senate Republicans think now is the time for a change.
Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson stated that he intended to nominate Florida Senator Rick Scott to oppose McConnell as Republican leader in the Senate.
“What I’ve been asking for is a different governing model for our conference, one that is far more inclusive, far more collaborative, far more businesslike,” Johnson stated.
Scott – who infuriated conservatives by signing red flag confiscation laws in Florida – wrote that Republicans needed to articulate a conservative governing agenda.
“Republican voters expect and deserve to know our plan to promote and advance conservative values… That is why I am running to be Republican Leader,” Scott wrote.
Scott criticized McConnell’s foolish decision not to release a Republican agenda and instead rely on voters’ frustration with Democrats to win the midterms.
“We must start saying what we are for, not just what we are against. I do not believe we can simply continue to say the Democrats are radical, which they are. Republican voters expect and deserve to know our plan to promote and advance conservative values,” Scott added.
Scott also outlined the priorities he intended to pursue if elected leader.
“For those who want to get serious about ending reckless government spending and the devastating inflation it has caused, finally take action to protect Social Security and Medicare and preserve the promise of these programs for our children and grandchildren, hold government accountable from the FBI to the IRS, truly combat the extreme danger posed by Communist China and refocus our military on lethal defense instead of woke nonsense, I ask for your support in changing the direction of the Senate and rescuing America from the dangerous path Democrats have set it on,” Scott’s letter read.
Mitch McConnell’s fingerprints are all over every deal cut with Democrats over the last 15 years that ballooned the debt, grew government, imposed socialism and sold out conservatives.
And for the first time McConnell is facing a real challenge to his leadership.
