Steve Bannon renews call for war on Republican establishment

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon declared war on the Republican establishment on Saturday, comparing Mitch McConnell to Julius Caesar and asking “who’s going to be Brutus” in the political assassination of the Senate majority leader.

In an unapologetic speech at the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington DC, Bannon called on the social conservatives assembled in the cavernous ballroom of the Shoreham Hotel to join him in replacing sitting senators with outsiders in next year’s midterm elections.
