It is two weeks until the 2018 elections, a divided Republican Party is meeting after a series of polls showing diminishing support for the Right. The group is attempting to leverage their control of Congress in order to unite and push their far-right agenda through Congress before they risk losing their majority. The divide in the party is present as establishment Republicans and groups like the House Freedom Caucus remain at odds about the point at which ideology should be traded for votes. Additionally, lobbyists and individuals like the NRA and the Koch brothers continue to direct the actions of the GOP to benefit their own fortunes. In the face of the loss of power, the Republican Party must unite to remain in charge.
