Roy Blunt: I'm sticking with Donald Trump (but I won't mention his name)
Sen. Roy Blunt has made it clear that he will stand by Trump.
From the National Review:
Missouri Republican operatives say they now believe Blunt will pull it out — but he remains the rare GOP Senate candidate whose poll numbers lag behind Trump’s. That gives him every reason to avoid doing anything to hurt the top of the ticket, because if Trump’s number start to fall, there’s a possibility that his could too.
So Blunt, in his speech this afternoon, urged Republicans to back Trump, deeming this “the most important election ever.” “The most important thing about the presidential election and this Senate election . . . [and]Senate elections anywhere, is the Supreme Court,” he said. “The next president is more likely than not to appoint a new generational majority” to the Court, he added, without mentioning Trump by name.
