Remy the Rumor Mill tells us the folks organizing the GAGOP are buzzing this morning because Former Vice President Mike Pence has decided to forego visiting the GAGOP Convention in Columbus next week in favor of making a televised announcement about his entry into the the 2024 race for the White House.
Remy tells us that current chairman, David Shafer, told a group of activists that Pence would be replaced on the schedule by… checks notes… nah. Man. This CANNOT be right.
Election denier from, checks notes, Arizona, Kari Lake.
The Georgia GOP Convention is in danger of becoming a flat earth gathering.
For those who don’t know, Kari Lake is a former news reporter in Arizona who lost a very winnable race to become Governor of that state because she stunk as a candidate. After her loss, it was widely discussed how she had become Arizona’s version of Stacey Abrams. After all, her similarities to Abrams are stunning.
She lost by 17,000 votes to a Democrat who only had to run and hide to win as Lake self-immolated time and again. Afterward she accused her opponent, the secretary of state at the time, of rigging the votes. She sued and lost because she could not produce a single shred of evidence that supported her claims.
Just like Stacey.
I started this piece by pointing out that this is a rumor. Our rumor mill, however has never been wrong. But just this once I wish it would be.
