DISSENSION IN THE RANKS
THE LINCOLN PROJECT RELEASES NEW AD: “RESPECT”
February 3, 2022 — The Lincoln Project today released a new ad which will air in the Tallahassee and Palm Beach media markets February 3-4 on the Fox News Network. The 60-second ad, entitled “Respect,” highlights the growing chasm within the high command of the Republican Party — between Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, rising-star Ron DeSantis, and former President Donald Trump.
The ad drops as Trump meddles in McConnell’s senate recruitment process, escalates attacks against Governor DeSantis, and clings to any ounce of party influence he has left.
“Donald Trump is losing control,” said Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson. “The truth is, Donald Trump is being played by members of his own party. Whether it is Mitch McConnell cashing in on the MAGA brand, or Ron DeSantis basking in the glow of Fox News stardom, the former president appears too weak to reclaim control.”
