Brent Bozell Will Try To Remove Every GOP Leader From Office

There’s no shortage of conservative groups that take aim at Republicans, be it to drag incumbents further to the right or out of office entirely. But now one group is targeting the biggest fish they can fry.

ForAmerica announced Tuesday that it’s pouring six-figures into its “Dump The Leadership” campaign.

It probably won’t come as a surprise that the man behind the group is none other than L. Brent Bozell III, the right-wing flamethrower who’s proven himself plenty willing to take on the GOP establishment.

After Paul Ryan hashed out a bipartisan budget deal late last year, Bozell predicted that the conservative base would “stampede away from a party that has lost its principles and bearings.”

“Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes,” Bozell told CNN in a statement.

Bozell said the group will use digital ads between now and November to target House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX).
