Trump's Former Primary Opponent Just Challenged Conservatives to Support the Democratic Nominee, Whoever It Is
Make no mistake: Former Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL) is a Republican.
He was a prominent figure of the Tea Party, he pushed conspiracy theories that former President Barack Obama was from Kenya, and even appeared to promote violent insurrection should then-candidate Donald Trump lose the 2016 presidential race.
Walsh is by no means a moderate, yet he's one of the few Republicans who has publicly and loudly called Trump out over the past couple of years.
He even issued an apology for helping elect Trump last year.
Florida's New Republican Nominee for Governor Was an Admin on a Hate-Filled Facebook Group Until This Week, and People Aren't Surprised
For a candidate who just won Florida's Republican primary for governor, Ron DeSantis is having a rough week.
Fresh off of referring to his opponent Andrew Gillum, Florida's first black gubernatorial nominee, as "articulate" and warning Floridians not to "monkey this up" by electing him, DeSantis was discovered to be the administrator of a Facebook group called "Tea Party," whose 94,000 members regularly share racist, conspiratorial, and otherwise hateful memes and posts. DeSantis has since left the group, but not before Media Matters employee Natalie Martinez exposed him.
