"The afternoon reception, offering drinks and appetizers including beef Wellington and jumbo shrimp cocktail, was organized by former Republican congressman Tim Huelskamp, the group’s senior political adviser, according to the documents."
"...but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?"~Alexander Hamilton

You may not like Tim, but he was not part of the swamp. He voted no on all tax increases and wouldn't follow party rules. He angered the Republican leadership and was kicked off all committees. He wanted smaller government and tried to decrease the deficit. So he was attacked by both parties.
