As we all probably guess – President Trump is going to be an active participant in the 2022 midterm elections.

But, he will be participating by endorsing other Republican candidates. And he might have some competition…
According to political analysts,
“The Senate Leadership Fund is aligned closely with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
While they are only on the opposite side of Trump in one race so far, (SLF has endorsed Lisa Murkowski) that could quickly change as the campaigns get underway.”
“A super PAC closely aligned with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is prepared to intervene in GOP primaries — and challenge former President Trump — as it looks for the most viable candidates to reclaim the Senate.” https://t.co/7Sx7GoTz5K

A possible conflict is being set up. This only comes naturally, after Mitch McConnell blamed President Donald Trump over the Capitol riots on January 6th.
“This sets up a possible interesting but risky state of affairs for the GOP.
With a 50-50 split in the Senate, and several key retirements taking place in five states, three of which might be described as fairly reliable red, Republicans want nothing left to chance with selecting candidates.”
Jack Pandol, communications director for the Senate Leadership Fund stated, “As has long been SLF’s policy, we reserve the right to intervene in cases where a candidate is a clear threat to lose a seat in a general election and to protect our Republican incumbents.”
The Mitch McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund will support Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski in her reelection campaign, likely setting up a clash between the super PAC and former President Trump, who has vowed to campaign against her.https://t.co/ILBnb1M3iO

Mitch McConnell stated that his personal goal for 2022 was to get Republicans elected.
“My goal is, in every way possible, to have nominees representing the Republican Party who can win in November. Some of them may be people the former president likes. Some of them may not be. The only thing I care about is electability.”
Is McConnell seeing to it that those seen as “establishment” Republicans get re-elected?
Getting Republicans elected is good, but Mitch McConnell obviously has a personal goal in the outcome of the 2022 midterms. A victory will put him back in charge of the Senate.
