Aside from Donald Trump: An effort to bolster GOP women

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley

So if Republicans aren’t lockstep behind Donald Trump, there is the matter of where all of that excess energy – and cash – is going.

Below is an invitation that originated from the desk of Eric Tanenblatt, a senior honcho with Dentons in Atlanta, and one of the South’s largest GOP bundlers.

The topic is a Sept. 16 fundraiser in Atlanta, headlining South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, to benefit the “Winning Women Victory Committee,” which is dedicated to backing female GOP candidates. The accompanying note from Tanenblatt:

Also in attendance will be the beneficiaries of this committee, U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH), Liz Cheney (WY), Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (VA), Congresswoman Martha McSally (AZ) and Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY).    A similar event was held in the 2014 cycle in Atlanta with now U.S. Senators Joni Ernst (IA) and Shelley Moore Capito (WV).   It was a very successful event which we hope to replicate this year.

Needless to say, Ayotte is in dire shape in New Hampshire, in part because of a Trump backlash. Here’s the invite:

Trump makes american white again The film's overriding theme is the return of the USA as a great capitalist power, with Trump as the leader who will bring glory to the nation. the film was made after the 2016 vote and the Night of the no more Mexicans. The same american flag said to have been carried by the fallen GOP members during the Beer Hall Putsch) The entire crowd sings the Horst-Wessel-Lied aka God bless America as the camera focuses on the giant US banner, which fades into a line of silhouetted men in Nazi party uniforms, In Trumps master plan Mein Kampf ,aka Art of the Deal .donald talks of the success of Fox news propaganda after 9-11 and kicking out the arabs , and other non whites and starting a right wing christian Sharia law state —have earned Triumph of the Donald recognition as one of the greatest propaganda films in history . , Trump believes purification must take place. This meant not only eliminating the citizens of USA who are not of the Aryan race, but the sick, weak, handicapped, or any other citizens deemed unhealthy or impure., to the elimination of the "inferior" mud people of Amerikkka would, in theory, return USA to its once prideful and powerful former self.With a leader like George Wallace. https://www.facebook.com/831673126874781/videos/1158776460831111/

Waste of time! This woman is as low in values and morals as Trump. Otherwise , she would not be endorsing him.

Haley is a worthless RINO. If there's justice, she'll be impeached or voted out of office. She's the GOP/SC version of the worthless, dictatorial Roy Barnes.

Thank God the GOP still has intelligent, thoughtful people who possess more than a third grader's grasp of the English language and can speak intelligently on issues that face this Country, instead of spewing venom and ad hominem attacks.

Mike Wilson, Mmm, yummy! Just promise that your head won't explode when HRC wins 45 states, including Georgia and even Utah.

Fernande M Rivers , I can't help you until you commit to living in a fact based world. Non US citizens don't vote and the polls show it to be a virtual dead heat here in Georgia. Those are facts.
