Mitch McConnell and your Capitol Hill elite cronies, your failures to deliver cost Republicans a solid red Senate seat.

Yes, you are to be blamed for the loss.

Your failure to not only lead but also your failure to act, as well as your failure to support our president, cost Republicans this election.

The American people, from Alabama to my great state of Nevada, have told you time and time again that we support President Trump’s American First agenda. We have told you we are tired of you kicking the can down the road and we demand results. We have told you Obamacare must be repealed and replaced, our borders must be secured, and our success must be punished no longer with an outdated tax code.

Mitch, you just refuse to listen. And, you simply ignore reality.

Only the Republican candidate would support lower taxes, fewer regulations, and an America First agenda. President Trump understood that; you ignored that fact.

President Trump’s election should have woken you and your establishment pals, like Dean Heller, up. Instead, you all continue to fail us.

While the Alabama election is difficult, real conservatives remain committed to the cause.

Conservatives like me will not back down. We will continue to support President Trump and continue to take on the swamp.

We will continue to do so until the power in Washington is back in the people’s hands.
