In a phrase from the mouth of Bob Jones III:

"This is all about beating Hillary."

Rudy is already using her to win the nomination as well. They all will. Just mention her name in a conservative direct-mail pitch and the money is yours. Will they also unload on any Democrat? Sure.

Because they know it works.
