Today, top Trump advisor, Jason Miller, told the press that former President Donald Trump is not entertaining ideas of a split from his GOP. It appears Trump will instead work to solidify the MAGA message as central to the GOP brand.
Tonight, former Oklahoma lawmaker, John Bennett will address the future direction of the OKGOP when he appears on 3D Politics Live. Bennett was an early supporter of Trump in 2015, and stood by the Trump principles when he fought off several attempts to raise taxes in Oklahoma. Bennett found himself fighting the OKGOP establishment and his own House GOP Caucus leadership in 2018. But Trump's message has bolstered the MAGA base both in the party organization and the halls of the state capitol.
The base of Oklahoma's GOP members and county leaders are also venting the same ire with some DC lawmakers, namely Jim Inhofe & James Lankford. Last weekend, the OSAGE County GOP officially censured both Oklahoma US Senators for failing to support a congressional investigation into the irregularities of the November election in many states. Sooner Tea Party carried that story overnight.
Their best case scenario would be for two separate splinter parties would actually fight over the banner of 'MAGA'. A fracture was said to be a political -wet dream' for 'Never-Trumpers' like Mitt Romney & Ben Sasse (two remaining US Senators who fundamentally oppose Trump on just about everything).
But the Trump machine won the RNC elections for the top 2 spots. Ronna McDaniel went unopposed for her 3rd full term as RNC Chair. Her top elected assistant is also a big Trump Ally, Tommy Hicks of Texas.
The Wyoming GOP is set to completely disown Liz Cheney (known disaffectionately as "Lizard Cheney" in their local political clubs). Reports from the US Capitol say that House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, is under immense pressure from over half of his caucus who are demanding the Cheney be removed from caucus leadership. McCarthy may face his own ouster if he puts up a struggle to keep Cheney.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is planning a Cheyenne Wyoming rally for this Thursday, to bolster the grassroots to stand with Trump and reject Cheney.
In the Senate, GOP Leader Mitch McConnell is also facing a potential revolt. If 25 GOP senators decide to call for a vote of no confidence, Mitch may also be moved to the curb. McConnell and his wife(Elaine Chow) have a very personal feud with Trump. It's rumored that Chow spearheaded a failed coup on Jan. 6th, to have the president removed by sunset of that day. She resigned just after sunset on the 6th, when VP Mike Pence rejected the maneuver.
