GOP super PAC could target immigration hard-liners
Former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez has formed a super PAC to help pro-immigration Republicans fight back against primary challengers. “If someone has voted for immigration reform and gets a primary challenger, we’ll go after them. We’ll go after challengers,” he said.
The super PAC, called Republicans for Immigration Reform, would also consider attacking immigration hard-liners who vote against reform. From The Hill:
But if anti-immigration Republicans face their own primary challenges, Gutierrez said, he’d take a hard look at spending against them as well.
“We focus primarily on ‘take the vote now and we’ll support you.’ Those who don’t take the vote who get attacked by primary challengers who would have voted for it — that’s a very interesting question,” he said. “That’s also a possibility.”
