As further evidence that John Mica and Donald Trump will be inseparably tied this November, news broke yesterday that House Republicans will be meeting with Trump’s team every week to craft a joint agenda. According to CNN, there will be “weekly meetings Trump campaign officials are holding with House Republicans.”
This joint agenda is further proof that John Mica will own the divisive priorities and offensive policies that Donald Trump promotes between now and Election Day, even though they will undoubtedly turn off the women, millennials, Latinos, African-Americans and other voters whose support he needs to win in a competitive district, like Florida’s 7th. John Mica and Trump will be tied together on the ticket in November, and no political games or linguistic gymnastics will change that.
“John Mica shouldn’t be holding his breath that the joint Trump-House Republican agenda means that Donald Trump will become more presidential or palatable to Central Floridians. In fact, this joint agenda further reinforces that John Mica will be inseparably tied to the Trump ticket and must answer for his party’s frontrunner, his policies, and his toxic numbers with key groups of voters, every day between now and November,” said Jermaine House, DCCC Spokesman.
