It’s become increasingly obvious that former Governor Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) is simply not cut out for a presidential campaign. Instead of focusing on the issues that truly affect Americans, he’s decided to attack the only leader capable of saving this country from the disaster that is the Biden administration – that’s right, he’s going after Donald Trump – again.
Hutchinson recently criticized Trump’s handling of classified documents, which led him to be arraigned last Tuesday in Miami. But is this really the best use of his time? Especially when he ignores the overwhelming evidence that suggests the Biden family is steeped in corruption?
Even House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has pointed to nine members of the Biden family possibly being involved in corrupt activities. Yet Hutchinson remains silent on this issue, a clear indication that he’s not interested in actually making a difference for the American people.
Instead, Hutchinson has decided to criticize his fellow Republicans for pushing back against the DOJ’s involvement in the matter, claiming that their concerns are just “weaponizing” the government.
But the truth is, the concern about the “weaponization” of government is a very real one under President Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland. In fact, there’s an entire select subcommittee dedicated to this issue under Chairman Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) House Judiciary Committee.

Furthermore, a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll conducted after Trump’s arraignment shows that 55 percent of Americans believe the charges against Trump are “politically motivated.” Yet Hutchinson seems to be ignoring this fact, along with declining trust in the FBI and DOJ under Garland’s watch.
More importantly, Trump continues to lead the Republican primary with a spread of +32.7, according to RealClearPolitics. Despite what Hutchinson may think, his message simply isn’t resonating with Republican voters.
It’s time for Hutchinson to put aside his personal vendetta against Trump and start focusing on the real issues affecting the American people. If he continues down this path, he’ll soon find himself out of the race and out of relevance.
