As the corruption trial of New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez got underway in Newark on Wednesday, the Republican National Committee launched a digital ad campaign pressuring his fellow Democrats to call for his resignation if he’s convicted.
Menendez was indicted in 2015 for being bribed with private jets and exclusive trips, but it looks like Stabenow’s cozy relationship with Menendez comes with some perks of its own. Even as recently as six months ago, Senator Menedez’s New Millennium PAC contributed $10K to Stabenow’s reelection campaign.
He posted a screenshot of Epstein’s account “liking” a David Duke tweet and a tweet from “Baked Alaska” who is apparently a neo-Nazi.
Dillon then sent out a series of tweets about how Epstein “really likes David Duke and neo-Nazis.”
Epstein sent out a press release explaining that her twitter account was hacked yesterday. She was able to back this up with a screenshot of an email that twitter sent her. She said in a statement:
In a poll just released by the Trafalgar Group, Lena Epstein is out in front of the other announced Michigan U.S. Senate Republican candidates. The poll of Republican Primary voters has Lena Epstein: 9.4%, John James: 7.1%, Bob Young: 5.8%.
Epstein released the following statement:
“The voters of Michigan are looking for a political outsider – a business leader and job creator. I am taking the fight directly to Debbie Stabenow.
As a future United States Senator serving on behalf of all Michigan residents, I will repeal Obamacare, defend President Trump’s America First policies, and support proposals that will rebuild the American middle class.
Republican businesswoman Lena Epstein announced Monday she will run for U.S. Senate in 2018, saying Michigan is ready for another outsider with business experience after its voters favored Donald Trump in the presidential election.
Epstein’s family owns Vesco Oil Corp., a large distributor of automotive and industrial lubricants based in Southfield. A relative political newcomer who has not held elective office, she was a co-chair of Trump’s Michigan campaign last year and said she will “take the fight directly to” Sen. Debbie Stabenow, 67, a Democrat who is expected to seek a fourth term and who coasted to re-election in 2006 and 2012.
