The Lincolners aren't conservative Ron and they sure have nothing to offer Republicans.

Steve, The Lincoln Project is a American Political Action Committee formed in late 2019 by several prominent Republicans and former Republicans. The goal of the committee is to prevent the reelection of Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. In April 2020, the committee announced their endorsement of Joe Biden, a Democrat, after Biden became the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The History

The committee was announced on December 17, 2019, in a New York Times op-ed by George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson. Other co-founders include Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, Reed Galen, and Mike Madrid.

Conway is an attorney and the husband of Kellyanne Conway, an advisor to Trump; Schmidt managed John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, Weaver oversaw McCain’s presidential campaign in 2000, and Wilson is a media consultant. All four are outspoken critics of Trump; Schmidt left the Republican Party in 2018. Jennifer Rubin, in a Washington Post op-ed, described the four founders as "Some of the most prominent NeverTrump Republicans." Horn is a Republican operative and former chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party, Steslow is a marketing strategist and political consultant, Galen is an independent political consultant, and Madrid is a former political director for the California Republican Party. Galen serves as the Lincoln Project's treasurer.

The committee is named for Abraham Lincoln. On February 27, 1860, Lincoln gave a famous speech during his campaign at Cooper Union to be the first Republican president. Several members of the committee—Schmidt, Wilson, Horn, Galen, Madrid, and Steslow—spoke in the same venue on the 160th anniversary of that talk, from the same lectern that Lincoln had used. The group was outspoken in their criticism of Trump and the current divide in the Republican party, with Madrid saying that "two views cannot exist in one party" and Steslow saying he will "vote blue no matter who." Schmidt warned that a second term with Trump would be "unrestrained and validated."

The members of Lincoln Project's advisory board—Conway, Schmidt, Weaver, Wilson, and Reed Galen—published another op-ed in The Washington Post on April 15, 2020, endorsing the presidential candidacy of former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, writing: "We’ve never backed a Democrat for president. But Trump must be defeated."The op-ed argued that Trump was unqualified to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ensuing economic downturn.

Stuart Stevens announced, on May 28, 2020, that he had joined the project. Stevens had previously been the chief strategist for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign in 2012. Prior to that, he had worked for George W. Bush and Bob Dole. Jeff Timmer, a former executive director of the Michigan Republican Party, is an adviser to the project.

According to you, I guess these people are NOT republicans neither: George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson. Other co-founders include Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, Reed Galen, and Mike Madrid.

I said they are not conservatives. If they say they are Republicans I say they lie. The only place any of these morons are stupid enough to appear is MSNBC.

YOUR WORDS: I said they are not conservatives.

MY REPLY: That call is not yours to make, that is a call that is truly there's in a free and open democracy.

YOUR WORDS: If they say they are Republicans I say they lie.

MY REPLY: What in the world do you think you are? Just like you said that you was a Democrat, Attorney Conway, Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson can choose their political party without your permission, do you understand that?

YOUR WORDS: The only place any of these morons are stupid enough to appear is MSNBC.

MY REPLY: Steve, this story was not on MSNBC, if you understood the subject, you would have notice that this report was from PBS NEWS HOUR and Joy Reid must be paying you rent money because she has made her mark on your mind as she puts her foot deep in your rear end.
