House GOP cuts loose candidate who misled about military service

Source: Politico

The House GOP campaign arm is slashing a near-$1 million ad buy meant to target Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) — essentially walking away from what could have been an easy pickup for the party.

The move comes a day after an Associated Press report that Kaptur’s opponent, JR Majewski, lied about his resume, including claiming that he deployed to Afghanistan. Majewski beat out two state legislators in a May primary contest for the northwest Ohio district.

The National Republican Congressional Committee booked $960,000 in the Toledo, Ohio market to help boost Majewski. It cut that buy entirely on Thursday, according to two sources familiar with the committee’s media purchasing.

Kaptur, one of the longest-serving women in the House, was redrawn into a district that President Donald Trump would have carried narrowly, making her one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents. National Republicans were not initially enthused about Majewski’s primary win — he is closely aligned with the MAGA wing of the party and gained fame for painting his lawn into a giant Trump shrine.

4. News that makes you go 'hmmm' maybe even twice.

It isn't like the GOP to not just dig in and double down when one of theirs is shown to be a schnook.

Trump donors think they're giving to "save America," but they're paying Trump's legal bills

More than 60% of spending by Trump's Save America PAC is going to his legal battle over stolen classified documents

13. The Repukes never vet their own candidates - NEVER!

I'll bet they spend $millions on oppo research against their Dem opponents.

But they won't even do a simple Google or Facebook search to check out their own candidates credentials.
How crazy IS that?

17. I imagine they do, they just have wildly different criteria regarding

what past foibles and statements by the candidates pass muster vs. what we would.

18. He's not leaving the race and will probably still win.

He’s running in a ridiculously gerrymandered district and MAGAts don’t give a fuck about lying.
