Many Republican Lawmakers Are Wary of New Trump Presidential Bid

WASHINGTON—Many congressional Republicans said they were wary of former President Donald Trump’s launch of another bid for the White House, expressing concern that his move could distract from the party’s effort to win a Dec. 6 Georgia Senate runoff in the short term and hurt the GOP’s appeal to a swath of voters in the long term.

Mr. Trump announced his third consecutive presidential campaign Tuesday night at his Mar-a-Lago estate—a week after Republicans’ disappointing performance in the midterms, including losses in some key Senate races by Trump-backed candidates. The move came just as Capitol Hill Republicans were pondering their own leadership, with the House GOP picking Kevin McCarthy for their speaker candidate Tuesday and Senate Republicans held leadership elections Wednesday.

But many congressional Republicans couldn’t escape the topic of Mr. Trump and weren’t eager to support him again, even though nearly all of them did in the past.

“He had a significant impact on the underperformance of the Republican party,” Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R., Wyo.) said before the announcement. “I would much prefer that he wait until after Dec. 6.”

But many will still line up to kiss his fat stinky dimply orange ass.

1. If they'd been more wary of his first presidential bid, they could have avoided this.

2. The Republican elephant should be replaced by a jellyfish.

I feel sorry for elephants. They didn’t ask for this.
