From One “Total Exoneration” To Another: Trump Impeachment Allies Get Exported to the Heartland
Eric Greitens Finds Political Allies in Trump Defenders During His Attempted Comeback
Rumors around the potential return of disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens gain steam every day. The latest revelation will not put them to rest.
Some of Trump’s biggest allies are now all in for Greitens – and that should scare the bejesus out of Gov. Mike Parson.
People like John Solomon, former White House official Sebastian Gorka, and One America News correspondent Chanel Rion have spoken up on Greitens’ behalf calling the prosecution against him a “witch hunt” – a talking point now synonymous with Trump’s defenders.
In turn, his campaign boosts the stories through a paid Facebook ad campaign, which has had over one million impressions on Missourians so far. Greitens has even brought on staff, hiring a “campaign spokesman” to flack on his behalf.
This comes on top of a series of moves that have caused rampant rumors about a potential primary challenge to Gov. Parson. There’s a reason why Uniting Missouri – a Parson super PAC – has desperately spent $1.5 million this spring and pushed polling all trying to defend Parson against a Greitens challenge.
“While Eric Greitens collects Trump surrogates like a Fox News green room, Parson is looking weaker and weaker every day,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director, Christina Amestoy. “Parson has already had to call on his Jefferson City insider buddies to spend big money to fight Greiten’s shadow campaign. Hell hath no fury like an ex-governor scorned and for Parson, the March 31 filing deadline cannot come soon enough.”
