How Trumpism is on the march in Arkansas

화요일에, Arkansas Republican Lt. 정부. Tim Griffin abruptly ended his run to be the Natural State’s next governor choosing instead to run for attorney general in the state next November.

While Griffin didn’t mention the nameSarah Huckabee Sandersin his announcement, the candidacy of former President Donald Trump’s press secretary was, without any question, the reason Griffin bowed out of a contest he had been running in since last year.
The reality Griffin bowed to on Monday is this: Sanders is close to unbeatable in a Republican primary in a state as strongly pro-Trump as Arkansas. (지우다 won the state by almost 28 포인트 2020.)
And there’s no question where Trump’s loyalties lie. He officially endorsed Sandersgubernatorial campaign late last month in a 보도 자료 that touted her as awarrior who will always fight for the people of Arkansas and do what is right, not what is politically correct.

    While Griffin saw the writing on the wall, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge remains in the race against Sanders. But it’s hard to see how her chances are much better than Griffin’s against Sanders. Which is to say, her chances are not good.
    What the moves in Arkansas make clear is that even as Republicans in Washington debate what role — 만약에 어떠한 — Trump should have in the party going forward, that conversation in Republican states is already mostly over.
      Candidates aligned with Trumpespecially those as closely aligned as Sandersare playing up that connection and benefitting politically from it.
      요점: Trumpism isn’t dead. It’s still the dominant force within the GOP.
