Rather than addressing head-on his call to a new declaration of independence by the betrayed, disillusioned, demoralized and feed-up of both parties, McDaniel's resorted to schoolyard partisanship and name-calling:
"Make no mistake — a Democrat in Independent's clothing is still a Democrat," Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
"RFK Jr. cannot hide from his record of endorsing Hillary, supporting the Green New Deal, fighting against the Keystone Pipeline, and praising [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-N.Y.)] tax hikes — he is your typical elitist liberal and voters won't be fooled," McDaniel said.
If that's all the GOP can muster, RFK stands to peel even more votes from the Republican column than party insiders already fear. That's because RFK is the very opposite of an elitist politician, and the coalition he is attempting to mobilize has nothing whatsoever in common with the K-street lobbies and beltway bandits who replenish the coffers of both wings of Washington's Uniparty.
