In an interview on Politico’s “Off Message” podcast, Perez said that the Republican Party is now defined by its current stewards — namely insurgent figures, like President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE and former GOP Senate candidate Roy MooreRoy Stewart MooreSessions goes after Tuberville’s coaching record in challenging him to debate The 10 Senate seats most likely to flip Sessions fires back at Trump over recusal: ‘I did my duty & you’re damn fortunate I did” MORE.
“The party of Lincoln is officially dead,” Perez said. “It has become the party of Trump, [Roy] Moore, [Joe] Arpaio, [Paul] Ryan, [Mitch] McConnell.”
Arpaio, the a controversial former Arizona county sheriff, is known for his hard-line views on immigration and law enforcement. He was convicted last year of ignoring a federal court order to stop racially profiling suspects. Trump eventually pardoned him, and just last week, he mounted a Senate bid in Arizona.
Moore, similarly, was an insurgent candidate, backed by Trump, despite numerous allegations that he pursued sexual and romantic relations with teenage girls when he was in his 30s. He lost his Senate bid to Democrat Doug Jones.
