Does the name Evan McMullin ring a bell with you? McMullin is the political zero who came out of nowhere in 2016 to run against President Trump as an Independent.
McMullin, whose experience in government would make him a great staffer in Liz Cheney’s congressional office, but hardly presidential material, was largely funded by Democrats and was the do-boy for the Lincoln Project’s John Weaver pedophile protection cabal.
McMullin’s entire strategy was not to sell himself as a national candidate, but to campaign in his alleged home state of Utah hard enough to deprive Donald Trump of Utah’s six Electoral College votes – a project in which he failed miserably garnering only 20% of the vote.
Now, McMullin is back with a similar attack on principled, limited government constitutional conservative Republican all-star Senator Mike Lee.
After his failed 2016 Presidential campaign, Evan McMullin is being put forward by the Lincoln Project, The Bulwark, MSNBC, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and the usual #NeverTrump crowd, and so is expected to have all the resources he needs to compete in this Senate race.
Progressives in Utah are running McMullin as an Independent, hoping that Democrat voters will jump to vote for him when the unknown Democrat candidates fail to mount a serious challenge to Mike Lee. This strategy is not as farfetched as it sounds and could make it a tough race for Senator Lee.
Mike Lee has been one of the most principled conservatives in the U.S. Senate. He has always conducted himself with class and dignity and he is standing strong against the disastrous Biden agenda.
McMullin’s platform, if you can call it that, is a call for the kind of “bipartisanship” that put conservatives in the congressional minority for much of the second half of the 20th century and inevitably leads to the growth of government and taxes and the retreat of liberty.
For those of us who are involved every day in the conservative movement such a “platform” is patent nonsense, to good people who like to think that being nice and compromising with folks with whom you disagree is the right way to govern it has a lot of appeal – even when history proves such behavior produces results they abhor.
So, let’s be very clear: If Mike Lee loses to Evan McMullin, Biden and the Progressive agenda will win. And McMullin’s agenda of “bipartisan compromise” means runaway spending, continual inflation, open borders, fentanyl and drugs, violent crime, cancel culture, and passage of the rest of the progressive wish list.
