Well, looky here.

A political action committee run by Republican women opposed to Donald Trump is getting involved in Michigan’s most competitive Congressional races — and supporting the Democrat candidates.
Republican Women for Progress PAC tells Metro Times it has taken out $50,000 television ad buys in Michigan’s 11th and 8th Congressional District races. Both races feature a moderate Democrat against a Trump-aligned Republican. In MI-11, Democrat Haley Stevens is up against Republican Lena Epstein, the former Michigan chair for the Trump campaign. In MI-08, Elissa Slotkin is trying to unseat incumbent Rep. Mike Bishop.
“We think the best thing that we can do for the party and for the country right now is to make sure there are good women — Democrat or Republican — that are elected to office and who can serve as a check on this administration and on the president,” says Meghan Milloy, co-founder of Republican Women for Progress. “[This effort] really was inspired by us talking to Republican women in these districts where they said there was just no way that they could vote for the Republican.”
It appears that this blue wave just got a dab of red in it.
Perhaps before the election, we will see a red tide of pissed off Republican women joining forces with Democrats to finally put a stop to Trump’s out of control agenda.
Advocating for the rule of law, keeping families together, and standing with America’s allies used to be policy positions the GOP took seriously, perhaps not all of them have forgotten that.
