Targeted: Congressman Massie Survives Kentucky GOP Primary

Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) may be breathing a sigh of relief after easily winning his Republican primary election in his home state of Kentucky. But it wasn’t for lack of effort on the part of his opponents.

After Massie’s role in an unsuccessful effort to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-KY) over the passage of foreign aid bills sending nearly $100 billion to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, the Kentucky Congressman faced the wrath of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. AIPAC spent more than $400,000 on TV ads targeting Massie as having an “atrocious anti-Israel record” for putting the needs of his Kentucky constituents ahead of a foreign government.

Notwithstanding a serious campaign to smear him as troublemaker, Massie garnered 75.9% of the vote in Tuesday’s Kentucky GOP primary and couldn’t resist taking a swipe at his detractors.

According to Cincinnati.com Massie spoke publicly about his primary victory in the Northern Kentucky community of Crescent Springs.

Holding up his voting card, Massie said, “It’s always a question, can you go to Washington, D.C. and not sell out? Can you vote exactly the way your constituents want? This is your card. This is your voting card. You let me keep it in my wallet and go to Washington, D.C. and vote for you.”

Moving forward, the 5 term Congressman isn’t shying away from other controversies including introducing bills to abolish the Federal Reserve (HR 8421) and an Interstate Milk Freedom Act (HR 8374) to limit the FDA’s power to shut down trade between peaceful farmers and willing consumers.

Massie has garnered the nickname “Mr. No” for regularly being the lone House member voting against certain bills.
