One year ago today at the Republican National Convention, Cruz Delegate Mo Brooks’ allies at Courageous Conservatives PAC conspired to steal the Republican nomination from Donald Trump. That’s the same anti-Trump activist group that Brooks defended just 8 days ago after accepting its endorsement.
AL.com: Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Mo Brooks is sticking by his acceptance of an endorsement from a Republican super PAC that got its start by attacking Donald Trump.
AL.com: The super PAC was also part of the “Dump Trump” movement to unbind delegates at last year’s Republican National Convention in an attempt to nominate someone other than the real estate mogul.
Wall Street Journal: The first ads from groups aiming to unbind Republican National Convention delegates are set to air beginning Thursday, marking a new offensive in the effort to strip the GOP nomination away from presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
CBS News: Sponsored by the Courageous Conservatives PAC, the ad says, “We elect delegates to nominate presidential candidates, not as rubber stamps, but as real people to make real decisions in the best interests of our conservative values.”
AL.com: The group spent more than $46,000 on attacking Trump and just $87 trashing 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during last year’s election, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.
Politico: Courageous Conservatives, the anti-Trump PAC who endorsed Brooks, suggested delegates should ditch Trump at the Republican National Convention and referred to his supporters as “The Trump Cult” and called then-candidate Trump an “unstable left-wing Socialist.” In one Facebook post, the group flatly declared: “Anyone who believes anything [Trump] says is a moron.“
