It’s the opening of the latest front in an intraparty battle between allies of McConnell and former President Donald Trump over the direction of the GOP following a disappointing showing in last week’s midterm elections.

Scott is the leader of the GOP’s Senate campaign efforts and has long feuded with McConnell over the party’ approach to reclaiming a Senate majority.

In a letter to Senate Republicans, Scott said: “If you simply want to stick with the status quo, don’t vote for me.” They are holding their leadership elections on Wednesday.
