It is a well-reported fact that seven current or former Proud Boys are members of the Miami-Dade GOP Executive Committee, and a reporter doing their job asked 2024 Goat Rodeo contender-wannabe Sen. Marco Rubio —the Cold Warrior for a New Generation, and beloved grandson figure of Wingnuts over the age of 73 and under the age of death— what he thought about it:
We asked Rubio if he was OK with Proud Boys serving on the Miami-Dade GOP committee.
“Well, when you ask me about the Communists and Socialists that are part of the local Democratic party, then we can talk about members of the Republican party.”
And meanwhile, we learn about his erstwhile competition:
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton huddled with two dozen of his top donors Tuesday morning to describe his planning for a potential 2024 White House campaign, telling them a comeback bid by former President Donald Trump wouldn’t deter him from running.
During the meeting at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington, which was described by two attendees, Cotton said he was prepared to run and detailed the work he’s done to develop an infrastructure for a national campaign. He emphasized that he wouldn’t defer to any other would-be candidates — including Trump — and said he planned to make a final decision on whether to run after this year’s midterm election.
So we got that workin’ for us.
