Follow-up on CNN:
Q: “Why is Trump’s push to overturn the election result—and his continued insistence the election was stolen—not an automatic disqualifier?”
@RoyBlunt: “He can have his own opinion. That’s not a disqualifier, because you may have one issue you disagree with.”

Just one issue, eh? Evidently insurrection isn’t a deal breaker.
Some of the responses:
It’s not just that he thinks the election was stolen. It’s what he did in the lead-up to January 6th and everything that’s come after. How can Blunt think that’s not disqualifying?
And its such a minor issue: whether to accept the results of a legitimate election.
Embarrassing blunts in Congress:
1. whatever was in Cawthorn’s hands in that video
The definition of insanity.
“That’s not a disqualifier, because you may have one issue you disagree with.”
Faith in US elections isn’t ONE ISSUE
Faith in our electoral process is the basis of consent of the governed
Blunt was allowed to skate on both shows
@MeetThePress & @CNN both screwed the pooch
Roy Blunt, you are a coward.
