Longtime Republican strategists behind the Lincoln Project mounting rogue offensive against trump

The Lincoln Project has been very effective

A group of longtime Republican political operatives trying to unseat the president say they are willing to forgo a future in Republican politics to oust a leader they believe has driven the party of Lincoln into the ground. Lesley Stahl reports on the anti-Trump Super PAC the "Lincoln Project," whose lifelong Republican founders include former John McCain strategists Steve Schmidt and John Weaver, on the next edition of 60 Minutes, Sunday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. PT on CBS.

Schmidt and seven co-founders launched the Lincoln Project last December in hopes of reaching out to other Republicans they believed were also unhappy with President Trump. "What we thought we could do is talk to those voters in the language and the iconography that they understand, connect with them, and persuade them, many of them, to vote for the Democratic nominee for the first time in their lives," says Schmidt.

Other co-founders of the Lincoln Project include Republican media consultant and author Rick Wilson; George W. Bush campaign veteran Reed Galen; and George Conway, Trump critic and husband of former White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway. "None of us will ever work in Republican politics again," Schmidt tells Stahl. "We joke that-- like some of the explorers who came to the new world, they were incentivized by the captain when he burned the ships…" Asked whether his actions have cost him friends, he replies, "For sure. Of course."

The Lincoln Project made a name for itself with its numerous attack ads, released almost every day on social media. The ads go for the jugular. They have accused the president of being a draft dodger, disrespecting veterans, and failing in his response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Critics charge the negative attack ads are right out of the playbook used by President Trump. That's the plan, says Wilson, who is in charge of the advertising. "There's always a reflexive sort of, do-gooder instinct to say, 'Oh, I hate negative ads.' People do hate negative ads, but negative ads work," he says.

10/9 Daly Dose of Joe

Friends -- see below for today's Dose of Joe.

• Yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris traveled to Arizona where they greeted American Indian tribal leaders in Phoenix. Following that, they delivered remarks before embarking on a “Soul of the Nation” bus tour to meet with small business owners in Phoenix and Tempe, as well as voters on the second day of early voting. You can watch their full remarks HERE.

• Joe Biden will travel to Las Vegas, Nevada. In the morning, he will make an East Las Vegas community stop followed by remarks at a drive-in event. You can watch HERE.

• Jill Biden will join Biden for President Ohio to kick off a virtual Get Out the Vote phone bank. Biden will thank volunteers and discuss the importance of making a plan to vote and voting early.

• Mr. Emhoff will travel to Colorado Springs where he will join State Senator Pete Lee and Coloradans to discuss their health care stories in a listening session.

• Kamala Harris's interview with singer Becky G on her podcast, En La Sala published. In the conversation, Senator Harris spoke about the importance of voting, prosecuted the case against Donald Trump, and reflected on her mother’s immigrant experience.



@JoeBiden: Time and time again, President Trump has refused to condemn white supremacy and stoked the flames of hate for political gain.

It’s a pattern — and America deserves better.

@JoeBiden: After last night, I just had to write a note about my friend and running mate, @KamalaHarris.
