Big Picture. John Kasich is gaining traction with the possibility of a primary challenge to Donald Trump, and somewhat correctly pointing out that the GOP is stumbling around without a holistic strategy (or any strategy) for creating peace and prosperity for all. Al Jazeera is calling it for Trump, pointing out that Harris is now sleeping with the people she used to prosecute (Wells Fargo, among others). Scaramucci is predicting a 40 state landslide, we are not so sure. The President has not fulfilled key promises including arrests and 9/11 disclosure and withdrawal from foreign wars BUT the President has the power to get it all done in time, and on top of his phenemenal — PHENOMENAL — economic initiatives, we will agree with Scaramucci IF IF IF the President pivots back to a politics of love at home. AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, waitress-actress selected for the role of Congresswoman) is rapidly becoming the Democratic Clown Princess. Her lies about the border situation, including her fake photo op where she wailed and cried while looking at an empty parking lot, are now placing everything she says in question. This is not a serious person — welcome to the post-Pelosi Democratic Party. Marianne Williamson lurks in the wings and has been brought to the attention of the First Lady and Kellyanne Conway as a potential transpartisan transformative figure, along with Tomi Lahren and George Will.
Establishment GOP publicly speculates about primary challenge
Under the plan, both Kasich and Hickenlooper would leave their respective parties and run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, according to sources who spoke with Axios; the sources cautioned the idea of a “unity” ticket has only been casually talked about.
