Tim Pawlenty Loses GOP Gubernatorial Election. Who He’s Blaming For The Loss Will Make Your Eyes Roll.

Former two-time Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty was defeated by County Commissioner Jeff Johnson in a shocking upset in the state’s primary election on Tuesday, and the loser in question has a pretty good idea — in his own mind — who is responsible for his loss, and it isn’t him.

He’s blaming his loss on the “Trump era.” Yes, that’s right. A fellow Republican is bashing the president and pointing the finger at him for his loss. Real mature, right?

Undoubtedly, some will see the upset as a victory for President Donald Trump’s movement, even if he didn’t endorse Pawlenty’s competitor. Johnson framed himself as the Trump alternative to more moderate Pawlenty, who had criticized Trump before the 2016 election as “unhinged and unfit for office.”

Johnson had also criticized Trump, calling him a “jacka**” publicly, but he at least could say he voted for him.

More importantly, the victory for Johnson puts in peril a promised $2.3 million ad purchase by the Republican Governors Association which was premised on Pawlenty winning the nomination, according to Buzzfeed News.

On the Democratic side, Tim Walz defeated the crowded field to win the nomination, including front-runner state Rep. Erin Murphy, who received the official endorsement from the party earlier this year.

Walz and Johnson will battle to fill the governor’s seat vacated by Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton, who is leaving the office after two terms.

Pawlenty indicated that he was done with politics after this loss, and made reference to the roll Trump had in the election.

This is a pretty crazy turn of events, but it isn’t entirely surprising. We’ve seen similar upsets all across the country ever since Donald Trump was elected president. Folks on both sides of the aisle are sick and tired of the corruption leaking out of the establishment politicians who are simply in Congress to take up space and line their own pockets.

Trump has ushered in an era of revolution. Americans are realizing they don’t have to put up with the establishment anymore, that real folks can run for office and win if they have the support of the voting populace. If the career politicians want to keep their post, they need to drop the compromise and actually stand on the values they profess to hold to.

Otherwise they better prepare for a lengthy stint of unemployment.

WATCH: CNN Tries Getting 8 Women to Admit Trump Is Racist, But It Goes Horribly Wrong

Good going, guys. This should definitely help ratings!

If they’re trying to look silly then they’re killing it. CNN refuses to acknowledge any of the great work President Trump has done for the country simply because they don’t like him as a person. It’s abhorrent. Check out their latest attempt at getting Republicans to “admit” that 45 is a stone-cold racist… From Daily Wire: CNN’s Randi Kaye asked a group of Republican women if they thought President Donald Trump’s recent tweets attacking four far-left congresswomen were racist and all eight fired back with a resounding “no.” The segment, which aired on Tuesday night on “Anderson Cooper 360°,” featured a group of eight Trump supporters in Dallas, Texas. One supporter, Sharon Bolan, said, “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/AC360/status/1151293969076109313?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151293969076109313&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49570%2Fcnn-tries-convince-gop-women-trump-racist-doesnt-ryan-saavedra According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us. Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan https://twitter.com/MsMaheenAhmed/status/1117084384614473729?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117084384614473729&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F04%2F13%2Flook-out-nancy-pelosi-rep-rashida-tlaib-just-called-out-your-whole-party-as-racist%2F Enter Tlaib, who dropped the bomb… They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse.

PHOTOS: Chris Pratt Compared to White Supremacists For Wearing ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Shirt

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Being proud to be an American is almost a sin, nowadays. Liberals can’t stand anyone who loves their country. No more examples are needed. We’ve seen enough. Check out the reaction Christian actor Chris Pratt received for wearing a t-shirt that reads, “Don’t Tread On Me”… From Daily Wire: Vulture writer Hunter Harris posted the photo of Pratt in the shirt on Monday; Yahoo! picked up the “story” the next day, claiming the t-shirt featured a “controversial symbol” and showcasing online far-left critics. https://twitter.com/hunteryharris/status/1150866021147906055?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1150866021147906055&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Reactions: https://twitter.com/timbyrnes89/status/1151121049347485696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151121049347485696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo https://twitter.com/akclarke_/status/1151129033989611520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151129033989611520&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F49563%2Fchris-pratt-criticized-wearing-white-supremacist-t-amanda-prestigiacomo Pratt constantly talks about deep faith in Christ and his relationship with the Lord. He’s also an avid hunter and pro-American patriot who calls out faux liberal outrage when he sees it, just like the rest of us. If Pratt is liberal then President Trump is humble. Neither is true. He can’t admit it for obvious reasons, but Chris Pratt is certainly conservative (or at the absolute least, right-leaning). That reason alone is exactly why TV Guide believes Chris is “problematic” to viewers. No joke. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.” https://twitter.com/TVGuide/status/1076160619831803904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw The un-Christmas-spirited piece begins by describing Pratt’s transformation from likable TV personality to “Hollywood’s golden boy” with his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.” But by the…
