Republican senators who oppose efforts to repeal Obamacare may be in jeopardy of losing their seats, as one conservative group has threatened that if they don’t get the job done, it will recruit and fund others to run against them.
Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said in a statement Tuesday:
“Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare for years and now with President Trump in the White House, there is no excuse for them to break their promise. Working with the grassroots across the country, we will seek to identify, recruit, and fund conservative challengers against Republican senators who vote against repeal.
“If they won’t keep their word and if they can’t find the courage to repeal a liberal takeover of our healthcare system that has hurt so many American families, they should be replaced by someone who will.”
The GOP healthcare plan to repeal and replace Obamacare officially died Monday night when two Republican senators, Mike Lee and Jerry Moran, officially withdrew their support, guaranteeing that the GOP would not have enough votes to get it passed.
House Majority Leader Paul Ryan is already facing serious backlash after a Bloomberg poll just released shows his approval rating has taken a nosedive.
On the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) website, the group is described as a “national grassroots organization that seeks to bring bold conservative leadership to Washington by supporting candidates who will fight for the timeless conservative principles of limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values.”
SCF pledges to help candidates by “building contributions for them from thousands of freedom-loving Americans across the country, and by running hard-hitting radio and television ads to promote their conservative campaigns.”
According to Cuccinelli, those in office who are not getting the job done are in danger of being sent home.
