Republican Rift Exposes Choice: With Trump or Against Him
NEW YORK (AP) — A rift over the Republican National Committee's symbolic vote to censure former President Donald Trump’s House GOP critics has exposed the competing forces fighting to control the party.
The infighting shattered a period of relative Republican peace just as party leaders insist they need to come together to defeat Democrats in the looming midterms.
The RNC controversy is a proxy for the larger political tug-of-war between Trump and his allies and the party’s establishment wing.
For most Republicans, the choice heading into the midterm elections is clear: Either you’re with Trump or against him.
