Another Prominent Anti-Trump Republican Just Went Down In Minnesota. Here’s Why This Keeps Happening.

On Tuesday, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty was rejected by Republican voters in his gubernatorial primary with Jeff Johnson, a commissioner from Hennepin County. The main cause of his defeat: failure to follow President Trump with enough alacrity.

Johnson cut an ad at the end of the campaign featuring Pawlenty criticizing Trump after tape broke of Trump in October 2016 talking about grabbing women by the genitals. “Tim Pawlenty stuck his finger in the wind,” Johnson intoned. “I won’t panic when it matters most.”
