Josh Hawley Sets Mitch McConnell Straight: “The old party is dead, time to bury it, build something new”

Republican Sen. Josh Hawley put Mitch McConnell and GOP Party leaders on notice after the shocking loss in the Nevada Senate race saying the Republican Party ‘is dead’ and it is time to ‘build something new.’

Hawley said: “You can’t expect independent voters to vote Republican unless you give them an agenda they care about. Not enough to say the other side is no good. Have to offer an actual agenda.

“Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night. When your ‘agenda’ is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal (‘infrastructure’), and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose.

“The old party is dead. Time to bury it. Build something new.”

When Marco Rubio called for postponing leadership elections saying:

“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.”

Hawley 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.”
