Nevada’s Three “Never Trump” Stooges Pull Another Boner

Hearken back, dear reader, to the fall of 2016.

The infamous “Access Hollywood” tape was released in a last-ditch effort to derail Donald Trump’s glorious and historic ride to the White House.

Remember how “Never Trumper” Mitt Romney then sashayed into Nevada and led a rally announcing he, along with a number of elected Nevada Republicans, were withdrawing their support for Trump – a decision that infuriated the GOP base?

The Nevada “Never Trump Gang” included Sen. Dean Heller, Rep. Joe Heck, Rep. Cresent Hardy, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Lt. Gov. Mark Hutchison.

The decision to participate in the Romney rally was obvious campaign suicide for Heck, who was running for U.S. Senate at the time, and Hardy, who was running for re-election.  But political svengali Dean Heller assured everyone it was no big deal.

Of course, Heck and Hardy lost.  As did Heller last year when he was next on the ballot.  Brilliant “strategery” that.

Now, notice who wasn’t on the list of Never Trump wobbling Weebles…

Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV).

Indeed, Amodei not only didn’t “go wobbly” when the going got tough, he continued serving as the president’s Campaign Chairman in Nevada despite tremendous pressure to “follow the crowd” and toss Trump under the bus like they did.

Alas, no good deed goes unpunished.

A “fake news” report came out a couple weeks ago claiming Amodei supported impeachment.  It wasn’t true.  Totally false.

Yet the folks running the Trump campaign in Nevada – including the aforementioned consulting geniuses Slanker, Schipper and Hughes (see separate post), who were employed at the time of the Romney rally by Heller and Sandoval – decided to throw Amodei under the bus.

They dropped him – Nevada’s lone remaining GOP congressional representative and a former Nevada Republican Party chairman – as Trump’s state Campaign Chairman for 2020.

Didn’t even include him as a co-chairman.

Didn’t even extend him the courtesy of a phone call to advise of the decision.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Making matters worse, of the three co-chairs named by the campaign for Nevada in 2020, NOT ONE is from Clark County – you know, where almost 3/4 of the state’s population lives.

Stupid is as stupid does.

The truth is, Donald Trump should win Nevada next year.  If he doesn’t, you’ll know who to blame.  The Three Stooges of Nevada GOP politics: Slanker, Schipper & Hughes.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

“Of course Heck can win this race and he’s going to win this race.” – FORMER Sen. Dean Heller, Associated Press, 10/8/16
