One resignation announcement turned the 2024 election upside down

Feb 13, 2024

This election is shaping up to be like none other.

Both parties are in upheaval.

And one resignation announcement turned the 2024 election upside down.

Wisconsin Republican Mike Gallagher was always an establishment foot soldier the D.C. swamp could count on.

Like an automaton on a factory assembly line, Gallagher would mindlessly rubber stamp however much taxpayer money Joe Biden sent to Ukraine to secure their border.

Gallagher also backed up Biden’s commitment to open borders at home by casting the deciding vote to sink articles of Impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Voters must make it clear bad political actors will pay with their careers

Defending the architect of Joe Biden’s open borders agenda from accountability was the last straw and conservatives began organizing a primary challenge.

Gallagher could see which way the winds were blowing and quit before Republican voters threw him out of office along with his pro-Mayorkas, Ukraine-first priorities.

In an announcement that shocked Officials in Washington, the 39-year-old Gallagher called it quits.

“The Framers intended citizens to serve in Congress for a season and then return to their private lives. Electoral politics was never supposed to be a career and, trust me, Congress is no place to grow old. And so, with a heavy heart, I have decided not to run for re-election,” Gallagher’s resignation statement read.

Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich warned that the avalanche of concern rolling about Republicans losing an “up and comer” should be taken with a grain of salt because of the source.

Sure enough, the cries that Gallagher’s resignation was yet another sign the GOP was descending into pro-Trump nihilism came from two categories of sources – leftists in the media and Never Trump RINOs.

Consider the sources

Ben Smith, founder of the radical left-wing outlet Semafor, praised Gallagher as an honest broker.

“Interacting with Gallagher’s committee was like dealing with the government of a different, more functional, country,” Smith gushed.

RINO National Review editor Philip Klein – who hates Trump and endlessly cheerleads for foreign wars – also called Gallagher’s resignation a “big loss.”

Klein went on to try and use it as an opportunity to smear House conservatives, saying, “Given the state of the House GOP and the overall direction of the party, who can blame him?”

Gallagher’s only defenders seem to be media figures who are rabid leftists or inside the beltway Never Trump RINOs.

That alone should ease any concerns in the minds of conservatives that Gallagher’s resignation represents some great threat to the House GOP majority.

It’s the forever wars at any cost crowd who are hurt by this the most, not the conservative grassroots.

Gallagher represented a seat that was +10 Republican, so now the voters have a chance to elect a conservative who will represent their values and not those of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the chattering classes inside of the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
