Steve Bannon Plots Against GOP Incumbents


Whether or not Trump espouses the populist language that he rode in on, Bannon is carrying that torch himself. Bannon has the financial backing of Robert Mercer, a wealthy republican donor. The Mercers have stakes in Breitbart and Cambridge Analytica, the data firm used by the Trump campaign.

Bannon’s Targets

After Moore’s victory, Bannon delivered a dire warning shot straight at other Republican incumbents that have been critical of Trump. “You are going to see in state, after state, after state, people that follow the model of Judge Moore, that do not have to raise money from the elites, the crony capitalists, from the fat cats in Washington D.C., New York City and Silicon Valley.”

Also, in Bannon’s sites are Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller. Flake is a prime target considering his vocal criticism of the President. Andrew Surabian, a former colleague of Bannon’s while at the White House, thinks that establishment Republicans should be very worried about their seats.
