Under pressure from conservatives to help Trump deliver on a signature campaign promise and unable to persuade him to avert the partial government shutdown, these lawmakers have all but surrendered to the president’s will. Their comments show how the cracks in the 53-member Republican majority that emerged at the outset of the shutdown have not spread beyond a handful of lawmakers.
I’ve expanded the earlier fundraiser we were doing for the Democratic Senate nominees in Maine and Colorado to include Georgia, North Carolina, McSally, and Ernst. Let’s send everyone of these Republican assholes home in 2020.
I may make this my main fundraising thing in 2020 — nominee funds for competitive Senate races currently held by Republicans. The Senate is the main pressure point in the shutdown and there’s a good chance that Dems maintain or expand their House lead and Trump goes down badly in 2020. If that happens, then it’s all about the Senate. Senate races are expensive but nominee funds are a good way to attract strong candidates. I think it’s money well spent.
