Trump challenger calls GOP a “cult” after cancellation of state primaries

Posted by / September 17, 2019

Republican primary challenger Joe Walsh is outraged that states are planning to cancel their presidential primaries. He called the GOP a “cult” that is “is all about washing their leaders’ feet every day.”

Earlier this month, the Republican Party announced plans to cancel GOP presidential primaries and caucuses in four states. Kansas, South Carolina, and Nevada have already canceled. If more states cancel, they may effectively kill the already slim chances of Trump’s challengers.

The GOP has responded by saying that the party of the incumbent president often cancels primaries, but Trump’s challengers are not having it. Former Rep. Joe Walsh, one of those challengers, said that “Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states. It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”

Walsh says that if the states carry through with their plans, then he will go straight to the people.
