Blunt said Wyoming voters would “decide if there is a seat in the House for Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.),” One of the leading Trump critics within the Republican Party.
Blunt offered some measured advice on a potential Trump offer to retake the White House.
“He can be a candidate if he wants to. But I think what President Trump could do most helpful right now would be to focus on the politics that aren’t working,” suggested Blunt. “His border policy worked, his regulatory policy worked, his tax policy worked. But we see that these policies don’t work for Democrats with these tight majorities that they have.”
“I hope he focuses on that, but I’m not managing his time or his comments,” said Blunt.
And Blunt also touched on the debate about voting rights legislation.
He characterized the efforts of the Democrats to pass a law on voting rights as a breach of the federal government.
“There are 10,000 electoral courts in America,” said the senator. “The federal government deciding how to hold elections in all 10,000 of these jurisdictions is a bad idea. … One of the strengths of our system is that the diversity of the system itself and the state and local responsibility for holding elections people trust. “
