Next week, tech pioneer Peter Thiel and best-selling author Ann Coulter will be headlining a fundraiser for Kris Kobach’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2020.
They will be appearing in Manhattan, New York City at Thiel’s apartment on Wednesday, Sept. 18. The special reception begins at 7pm, and costs at least $1,000 to attend. The proceeds will go to Kobach’s senatorial campaign, which was launched officially over the summer.
Kobach, a leading immigration patriot who has been shut out of President Donald Trump’s cabinet by the deep state, is fighting to become the new U.S. Senator from Kansas following the announced retirement of long-time incumbent Pat Roberts. Kobach has become the early favorite to win the seat, and the GOP elite is in panic mode as a result.
The former Kansas secretary of state has become the pariah to the Republican establishment. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have publicly treated Kobach worse than they do most Democratic Party officials, as they consider Kobach a threat because he would never take orders from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Joanna Rodriguez, the press secretary for the NRSC, claimed that Kobach is putting “President Trump’s presidency and Senate Majority at risk” with his run for the Senate, and arrogantly dismissed his candidacy shortly after it was announced.
“We know Kansans won’t let that happen and we look forward to watching the Republican candidate they do choose win next fall,” Rodriguez said.
While the swamp may not want Kobach to become a U.S. Senator, he is the favorite of the grassroots anti-establishment MAGA base. Thiel, one of the President’s most influential backers, and Coulter, who is a frequent critic of the President for not being conservative enough, are uniting behind a man whose voice is desperately needed in Washington D.C.
Although he has not received a position in the administration, Kobach has been busy serving as legal counsel for the “We Build the Wall” project. This endeavor is using crowd-sourced funds to build the wall at the U.S. southern border. The group recently unveiled the progress that they have made in building the wall at an event this summer in New Mexico.
“The only way I can think of [to strengthen border enforcement] is you re-elect President Trump with a huge majority, then you send people to the Senate that will perhaps have new leadership installed – people like oh, let’s say, I know, Kris Kobach. That’s right,” said border hawk and former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo about Kobach.
