GOP Candidates Open To QAnon Conspiracy Theory Advance In Congressional Races

Cash out or bet it all, the party in D.C. sees the writing on the wall. They have already glutted themselves on the various money streams coming from the Treasury for Covid 'assistance.' Four members of Congress received PPP money and Trump blew off any oversight. That deficit bubble is going to bust much faster than anyone anticipated. Financiers and Businesses are beginning to send their campaign donations to Biden, despite the possible threat of raising their taxes from 21  to 28% (it was 36% before Trump). They site the dismal response to the coronavirus is killing the economy and that foreign business and banking are treating them with pity, laughter, and suspicion. Apparently, the U.S. can't be trusted. Imagine that.
Other GOP members are 'retiring' after a nice long run. Others are slowly watching their political fortunes go down the rabbit hole of utter incompetence. There's a growing consensus that these next few months will see a silent retreat from him. Not overt, but certainly understood by all. Hospital beds are filling along with caskets and the Economy is crushed.  From the hums on the hill, Trump will find himself increasingly a leper within his own party by the election.

'Please for the love of God do not vote for my dad': Republican's daughter voices opposition
“When they go off to college, quite frankly they get involved with these Marxist, socialist universities ,and they start getting indoctrinated with things that are completely polar opposite from where you raised them,” Regan told local TV.

Regan, who describes himself on his own website as “so conservative (he) makes Rush Limbaugh look like a liberal,” says he and his daughter have disagreed on systemic racism, white privilege and Black Lives Matter.

This process arguably began as far back as Glenn Beck’s prominence on Fox News, but it has now blossomed into a grandiose collective paranoid fantasy.

You could have written the exact same article about the Democratic party during the 2nd Bush administration. Hell, this very forum looked like a QAnon fever swamp, just with a different target and different set of conspiracy theories.

That passed. This will pass.

A 57-page memo urged GOP campaigns to blame China for the coronavirus pandemic and insist the term 'Chinese virus' isn't racist
The National Republican Senatorial Committee sent GOP campaigns a 57-page messaging strategy that urged Republican candidates to blame China for the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a document obtained by Politico.

The memo said candidates should blame their opponents for not being tough on China and called for them to reject claims that calling COVID-19 the "Chinese virus" is racist.

The document, created by strategist Brett O'Donnell, said candidates should not defend the president's handling of the pandemic, and to pivot to blaming the Chinese government if Trump's response is questioned.

The NRSC distributed the report but did not commission it, according to Politico.

2. Texas is only third from the last state in testing per 1,000 individuals.

Governor Abbott is correct, there are plenty of hospital beds in Texas ... because morgues and coffins are filling up instead.

I believe this thread would be more relevant if it were  entitled "Trump Party".  The GOP as it's been known for decades doesn't exist anymore except in name only, IMHO.
