Rep. Thomas Massie Targeted for Defeat

by | Jul 4, 2019

Phillip M. Baily reported Wednesday at the Louisville Courier Journal on a apparent effort by national Republican Party figures to defeat United States House of Representatives Member Thomas Massie (R-KY) in the 2020 Republican primary.

Why the effort to defeat Massie? Maybe it is because Massie has been a strong advocate for nonintervention overseas and respect for liberty in America since he won election to the House in 2012.

Want an introduction to why powerful people behind the scenes would like to see Massie exit the House? Check out this April of 2017 interview of Massie at the Ron Paul Liberty Report in which Massie challenges the US government’s interventionism overseas, including via military attacks pursued by both Democratic and Republican presidents:

Massie is a member of the Advisory Board for the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
