We should take heed of what he says…

The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has issued a warning to Republicans doubling down on the fact that it “may be a bit foolish” to assume that Bernie Sanders will be the easiest Democrat for Trump to beat.

McConnell told reporters, “I’m reminded of when the Democrats back in 1980 were all pulling for Ronald Reagan to be the nominee because they thought he’d be the easiest to beat.”

He continued with, “I think it’s going to be a contested general election with a lot of energy on both sides, and for myself, I’ll leave it up to the Democrats to pick who they’d like to be their candidate.”

McConnell statement makes sense especially when he said that Democrats wanted Reagan to be the Republican nominee thinking he would be easy to beat, but ultimately losing to Reagan.
