The Trump Effect

With Boehner on his way out now pressure is being applied to oust Mitch McConnell.
You have to wonder if this is the result of the rejection of conservative voters to the current crop of squishy RINOs being offered by the RNC.
Could it be that the republican elitist jack-holes are finally getting the message?

Under pressure: McConnell pushed to resign as Senate Majority Leader
With John Boehner now departing as House speaker, an influential Republican Party official is now seeking the ouster of another GOP leader who has frustrated conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.

Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus.   
“Mitch is a good and honorable guy, but the base is leaving our party,” Mr. Villere said in an interview with The Washington Times. “I’m out in the field all the time and we have all our elections this year for state offices, and it’s hurting us tremendously with our elections.” 
Aides for Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, did not return repeated calls and emails seeking comment. A spokeswoman for Mr. Priebus said he was unavailable Sunday.~snip~
I doubt if it'll be in time to save the RNCs preferred  candidate Jeb or for them to retool this election cycle with more worthy candidates but McConnell resigning could be a sign that the republican party would be one that might represent the people.
Instead of the elites single quest for power.
