Josh Hawley Sets Mitch McConnell Straight: ‘The Old Party Is Dead, Time to Bury It, Build Something New’

Republican Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) put Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the party establishment on notice by warning that it’s time to “build something new.”

Hawley made the calls after the shocking loss in the Nevada Senate race.

The senator declared that the Republican Party “is dead” and it is “time to bury it.”

Hawley said: “You can’t expect independent voters to vote Republican unless you give them an agenda they care about.

“Not enough to say the other side is no good,” Hawley continued.

“Have to offer an actual agenda.

“Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night.

“When your ‘agenda’ is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal (‘infrastructure’), and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose.

“The old party is dead. Time to bury it. Build something new.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) called for postponing leadership elections until after the Georgia run-off.

“The Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed.

“First we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities & values of the working Americans (of every background) who gave us big wins in states like Florida.”

Hawley responded to Rubio, saying:

“Exactly right.

“I don’t know why Senate GOP would hold a leadership vote for the next Congress before this election is finished.

“We have a runoff in #GASenate – are they saying that doesn’t matter?

“Don’t disenfranchise.”
