Lincoln Project adviser Stuart Stevens appeared on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” to discuss the results of the midterm elections. Stevens said that the group is wanting to burn the “burn”
the Republican party to the ground and not just to oppose Trump.

In his discussion with fill-in host Ali Velshi, Stevens discussed whether he thought that the midterm results, where many Trump-endorsed candidates lost, would lead to the Republicans trying to “fix” themselves.

Stevens said in response to the question about the Republicans that many Republicans may try to fix the party by aligning with people like Liz Cheney, or Adam Kinzinger, but it is also possible that this might not occur as people might be hesitant to support “the underpinnings of democracy that we need in this country.”

Stevens also argued that his group is no longer focused on being solely anti-Trump and instead they have set it as their mission to bring the entire Republican party down.

He added that he believed that there was no way to save the Republican party, and instead they would need to rebuild it from scratch in order to be able to have a “sane, center-right party”. He added that this will be the only way for more normal candidates to take the forefront.

Finally, he concluded that there is nothing you can say to someone who would willingly try to overthrow the government and have others support him instead of convicting him. There was no way to defend these actions and saving democracy is the most important thing. This is why the Republican party will need to be rebuilt completely.
