Republican political strategists and officials have banded together against Donald Trump and the rogue Republican Party who has enabled him. In Arizona, a “trifecta” of demographics – voters over 65, a rising Latino population, and a growing college educated population – has The Lincoln Project excited about their chances of getting Donald Trump and Arizona Sen. Martha McSally voted out.

The ad campaign by The Lincoln Project targets Trump’s response to the growing civil unrest and his numerous civil rights violations against peaceful protesters. Video of Martha McSally greeting him and hugging him warmly at one of his public rallies are featured throughout the ads.
The group of strategists previously took on Sen. McSally in an ad, calling her a “Trump hack” and showing clips of McSally telling reporters asking her to answer for her support of Trump during the impeachment hearings that they were “liberal hacks” and refusing to speak to them. Comparing her to Republican senators like John McCain and Barry Goldwater, the ad pointed out that these lawmakers served their country and were called heroes. McSally, they say, will be remembered as “just another Trump hack.”
The Trump campaign has been concerned with McSally’s chances in 2020 for some time. In June, POLITICO reported that:
‘Trump himself said he was concerned about McSally, according to three people familiar with the discussion. His political advisers told McConnell about recent survey numbers in Arizona and stressed she was losing to Democrat and former astronaut Mark Kelly.
‘McSally’s poll numbers haven’t improved since June; in fact, just like Trump’s, they’re only getting worse.
Voters in Arizona were happy to hear about The Lincoln Project’s attempts to turn Arizona blue. Read some of their comments below:
