Conservatives and economic nationalist leaders are looking past the current dysfunction in Washington to a group of new and exciting young candidates throwing their hats in the ring nationwide to break the gridlock with midterm election victories.

This group of individuals, which some are calling “The League of Extraordinary Candidates,” is emerging nationally—a distinct slate of U.S. Senate and House candidates, as well as key gubernatorial contenders, all united in their focus on breaking the logjam in Congress. Movement leaders view establishment Republicans and Democrats alike as a force blocking, slow-walking, or stonewalling the agenda that President Donald J. Trump campaigned on, and aim to elect new voices by riding a new economic nationalist electoral wave in 2018 meant to mirror and surpass what happened in previous wave elections like 2010—which saw the rise of the Tea Party.

“We’re planning on building a broad anti-establishment coalition to replace the Republican Party of old with fresh new blood and fresh new ideas,” Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great America Alliance and ex-White House aide, told Breitbart News.

Surabian worked alongside Stephen K. Bannon, the now former White House chief strategist, during their White House tenure and is now working with the Great America Alliance—a pro-Trump Super PAC run by ex-Ronald Reagan aide Ed Rollins that doubles as a fundraising powerhouse, having raised $30 million last year to help the president.

“The only thing the Republican establishment has succeeded in is clarifying to the American people that they don’t represent their interests,” Surabian added. “Their repeated failures to govern have only crystallized their lack of vision or backbone. The group of candidates we are looking to support in 2018 are all bound together in their agreement that the new Republican Party must be bold in their thinking and aggressive in their tactics.”

The movement that is emerging to back candidates nationally in these critical upcoming primaries and general elections—combined with the candidates themselves, almost a decentralized and loosely organized political party in and of itself—is filled with some of the strongest conservative voices and a broad spectrum across the movement.

    The L of EC gets it. This is our time. This is our chance to put a dagger into the political establishment. Florida’s Democrat U.S. senator Bill Nelson comes up for reelection in 2018. His conservativereview.com/scorecard Liberty Score is a pathetic 4% (0-100% scale, 100% is best).
    For some perspective: Pelosi scores 8%. McConnell scores 42%. Rand Paul scores 92% and Ted Cruz scores 97%. Together, WE can replace Bill Nelson in 2018 with a Tea Party conservative. WE can do this. Keep attacking! Hooyah!

    I hope you’re right, Joe Z., but liberal south Florida swings a LOT of votes, so conservatives are REALLY going to have to come out for the election. We can’t afford to be complacent. Remember, Dems will bring up every stupid thing Trump has ever said to try and paint the conservative candidate with that brush.

  3. Joe Z says:

    Flash, I agree with you 100%. However, I am convinced Bill Nelson can be voted out in November of 2018. WE can make it happen.
