The winds of change seem to be blowing in the Republican Party these days.
So called 'establishment' Republicans like Jeff Flake of Arizona have decided not to seek re-election next year.
This gives the party a chance to fill those seats with Republicans more in line with Donald Trump’s agenda. Galveston Republican Robin Armstrong, who used to be the Vice Chairman of the Texas G-O-P, welcomes the fresh blood.
“We could actually see a resurgence of the Republican Party where we can be extremely successful for the next two decades. That’s what we are looking for. We are looking for a movement,” Armstrong explained.
But he admits there is the chance this could backfire and control of Congress could switch to Democrats.
“That’s always a risk, but as long as we get good, strong Conservative candidates, I think those folks will be fine,” Armstrong stated.
Senator Flake is following in the footsteps of Tennessee’s Bob Corker, another vocal Trump critic, who decided not to seek re-election. It also comes in the wake of former White House advisor Steve Bannon returning to Breitbart and promising to find candidates to run against Republicans that are not pro-Trump.
