Ex-GOP Candidate Campaigns With Far-Left Actress Alyssa Milano

Anyone who has encountered the social media musings of actress Alyssa Milano can instantly identify her extreme leftist ideology. Nevertheless, Republican-turned-independent U.S. Senate candidate Evan McMullin is scheduled to hit the campaign trail, albeit virtually, with the former child star of “Who’s the Boss.”

McMullin, who is squaring off against incumbent Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) in next month’s midterm, has also invited U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to Tuesday’s rally.

Despite his Republican affiliation, Kinzinger has been one of former President Donald Trump’s most ardent opponents — and is one of just two members of his party on the Democrat-run House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol Hill protest.

For his part, McMullin left the GOP ahead of the 2016 presidential election and mounted his own long-shot bid in an effort to siphon off potential Trump votes.

Although he still touted right-wing values six years ago, he has all but abandoned any former association with the Republican Party as he attempts to unseat Lee. He has received the support of Utah’s Democrats, convincing the party to not put forward a candidate in the race based on his belief he is in a position to win the election.

While McMullin has shunned the GOP-aligned fundraising platform, his campaign has consistently utilized its Democratic Party alternative, ActBlue.

Lee has been clear in his belief that his opponent is actually a Democrat thinly disguised as an independent.

“It is a huge con job, and it’s a con job that shouldn’t work,” the senator said earlier this week.

Earlier this month, McMullin attended a fundraiser with Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) of Montana. Now that he has cast his lot with the likes of Milano, there seems to be little doubt regarding the true nature of his political affinities.

McMullin has long denounced his former party, including in the run-up to a special election in Georgia, during which time he pleaded with voters to oust Republican incumbents.
