The Lincoln Project, a pseudo-Republican group that was created to unelect President Donald Trump, announced it would be spending over $1 million in Texas to help elect Joe Biden, calling the move “Operation Sam Houston.”
Not long after that news broke, however, Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West fired back, calling the group “dishonorable, characterless, and devoid of integrity”:
It is highly disturbing and quite disgusting that a group of so-called Republican strategists using the name Lincoln Project is planning to spend $1M in Texas against President Trump. It is equally despicable that these political traitors would call their endeavor Operation Sam Houston. It is unconscionable to me, as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, that there are these useful idiots who would seek to undermine the hard work and efforts being put in by the RPT, Republican candidates, and grassroots supporters to re-elect President Trump.
Why would these individuals desire to support a progressive socialist agenda that embraces the rule of the mob, defunds our law enforcement, would decimate our oil and gas industry, advocates for open borders and taxpayer funding of illegal immigrants, murders unborn babies right up to birth, and eliminate our individual rights, namely the Second Amendment?”
There’s only one answer, they are dishonorable, characterless, and devoid of integrity only seeking their own personal interest, not that of America, certainly not that of Texas. The members of the Lincoln Project have duly made themselves my opposition, an adversary, and I am focused on defeating them along with the progressive socialist left, the Democrat Party, here in the Lone Star State.
The Lincoln Project’s Texas Leadership Team includes lobbyists, political consultants, and Washington staffers.
