Tony Perkins, president of the anti-LGBT group Family Research Council, told radio listeners that he has spoken with Breitbart executive and former White House strategist Steve Bannon about plans to go to war with the Republican Party and thinks it is a “doable plan.”

During yesterday’s episode of his “Washington Watch” radio program, Perkins agreed with a caller that voters should not donate money to the Republican Party. Instead, Perkins encouraged listeners to donate money directly to candidates and groups like the Family Research Council instead.

Perkins cited his conversations with Bannon as part of his fundraising pitch.

“I’ve talked with Steve Bannon. I know the plan, and I think it’s a doable plan. It’s working. I mean, Flake is peeled off and there’s more to come,” Perkins said, referring to Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s announcement that he would not seek reelection due to the state of the Republican Party under President Trump.

Earlier this month, Bannon delivered a speech at the FRC’s Values Voter Summit aimed at recruiting the Religious Right to aid his agenda to dismantle the GOP with a “season of war.”
