Red Team's Latest PEU Candidate

Yahoo News reported:

The Associated Press called the GOP Senate primary for Blake Masters, a 35-year-old “anti-progressive” venture capitalist who was propelled to the front of a crowded field by at least $15 million in super PAC funding from powerful Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, his longtime boss and mentor.  

Masters worked for Peter Thiel's Founders Fund and Theil Capital.  He is a private equity underwriter (PEU).

Politicians Red and Blue love PEU and increasingly, more are one.

Update 8-18-22:  Elon Musk told the Red Team it should show more compassion to immigrants and stay "out of people's bedrooms."  The Lincoln Project called the new GOP "an authoritarian nationalist cult dedicated only to Donald Trump."  Former CIA Chief and NSA Director Michael Hayden called the Red Team "the most treacherous political force he has encountered in his lifetime."  Hayden agreed with a journalist's assessment of the Reds:   "Have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close"
