Trump Upset by Ties to Parnell Senate Campaign, Blamed Don Jr.: Report

  • Trump in recent weeks was dismayed by his link to Sean Parnell’s faltering campaign, Politico said.
  • Trump had endorsed Parnell and reportedly blamed Donald Jr. for his ties to the Senate campaign.
  • Parnell suspended his campaign Monday after losing custody of his children amid abuse allegations.

We are so sorry! We bumped into a system failure and couldn’t take your email this time.

Former President Donald Trump in recent weeks expressed dismay at the state of Sean Parnell’s Senate campaign in Pennsylvania and blamed his son Donald Jr. for his ties to the faltering campaign, Politico reported.

Parnell, an Army veteran and former congressional candidate who was highly touted by Trump’s son and endorsed by the former president in September, suspended his campaign on Monday after losing a child-custody battle.

A judge in Butler County, Pennsylvania, awarded Parnell’s estranged wife, Laurie Snell, primary custody and sole legal custody of their three children, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Earlier this month, Snell testified that Parnell choked her until she fought back to escape and that he hit their children and repeatedly hurled obscenities at her, The Inquirer reported.

With the ensuing turmoil surrounding Parnell, the Republican candidate chose to end his once promising campaign.

“There is nothing more important to me than my children, and while I plan to ask the court to reconsider, I can’t continue with a Senate campaign,” he said in a statement on Monday. “My focus right now is 100% on my children, and I want them to know I do not have any other priorities and will never stop fighting for them.”

A source told Politico that before Parnell’s exit, Trump was “fixated” on the situation, expressing disappointment with being connected to the campaign’s struggles, and couldn’t believe the developments in Parnell’s custody battle. Donald Jr. had been a catalyst for his father’s endorsement of Parnell, Politico reported, adding that the deterioration of the Pennsylvania Republican’s campaign was disconcerting to the former president.

Despite Snell’s allegations earlier this month, Trump did not withdraw his support for Parnell.

Trump’s team had moved forward with a January fundraiser for Parnell at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago Club in South Florida, according to Politico.

Trump’s and Parnell’s teams did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment. 

The GOP is now tasked with getting a handle on the still fluid Senate race in Pennsylvania as it seeks to rally behind a successor to the retiring two-term Sen. Pat Toomey.

With Parnell in the rearview mirror, the remaining Republican candidates include Jeff Bartos, a real-estate developer, and Carla Sands, who served as the US ambassador to Denmark under Trump. David McCormick, a combat veteran who runs the prominent hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, has also been mentioned as a prospective candidate. Former Rep. Ryan Costello, a moderate Republican from the vote-rich Philadelphia suburbs who served in Congress from 2015 to 2019, might also jump into the race, a source told Politico.

And Mehmet Öz, the cardiothoracic surgeon and longtime television personality known as Dr. Oz, has made some behind-the-scenes moves to enter the race.

Democrats see Pennsylvania — a state narrowly carried by President Joe Biden in 2020 — as one of their best pickup opportunities in their quest to retain control of the Senate next year.

Democratic candidates in the race include Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, Montgomery County Commissioner Valerie Arkoosh, state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, and US Rep. Conor Lamb.

Published

on

The end of Verdansk is edging closer and closer, and although we’ll be sad to finally say goodbye to the classic Warzone map, it also means the release date for the new Caldera Pacific Map is right around the corner.

Call of Duty: Vanguard was released worldwide on November 5th but to the disappointment of many, the anticipated Warzone integration wasn’t quite ready to release alongside the new instalment.

Things got even worse when the release of Season One and Warzone Pacific was then delayed from its original December 2nd date. But, we’re hopeful that the new Warzone map was worth the wait.

As we edge closer and closer to the arrival of Caldera and Vanguard Season One, fans will be eager to know the exact release date. Here’s everything you need to know.

New Warzone Caldera Pacific Map Release Date

As well as a brand new map for Warzone players to jump into, December 8th will also mark the beginning of Call of Duty: Vanguard Season One. The new season will include a brand new Battle Pass, Multiplayer Maps, Zombies Content, and more.

Players will be able to progress through the Season One Battle Pass in both Vanguard and Warzone, so don’t worry if you don’t own Call of Duty: Vanguard, you’ll still be able to join in on the action.

Will Verdansk Still Be Playable In Call of Duty: Warzone?

Unfortunately, as a new era of Warzone is set to begin on December 8th, it means the previous era must come to an end. When Caldera debuts in Warzone this December, Verdansk will no longer be playable.

Thankfully, the roadmap for Season One has indicated that the popular Rebirth Island map will still be playable though.

Warzone Pacific will feature two separate modes, one mode will feature weapons from Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and Vanguard on the new Caldera Map. Whilst the second mode will be Vanguard weapons only on the new map.
