Bannon is staging a comeback, whether Republicans like it or not. The New York Times and Politico reported on Wednesday night that Bannon is launching a pro-Trump political group and documentary aimed at framing the midterms as a referendum on the president.
The 25-person group, Citizens of the American Republic, intends to help Republicans hold the House by advising surrogates, generating talking points, and flooding cable TV, conservative radio, and op-ed pages with messaging on how GOP voters must turn out to save Trump.
“It’s very simple to me. This is a referendum on Trump, up-or-down vote on impeachment,” he told Politico. “This other side, they’re very motivated — and they’re motivated for one thing: They want to impeach Donald Trump.”
