Red Wave? Vulnerable Dems Starting To Panic Over Midterms
Vulnerable Democrats are upset with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
One vulnerable Democrat blasted the DCCC for focusing too much on Trump and other Republicans and not enough on “pocketbook issues.”
Another vulnerable Democrat warned the DCCC from using abortion rights as a campaign issue. The Democrat said abortion was a ” lightning rod” in her district and they should stay away from messaging about it.
Some vulnerable House Democrats are unhappy with the party’s Washington-based campaign arm. They want to lay off the TrumpTrumpTrump stuff and focus on pocketbook issues. But DCCC chief Maloney remains fixated on Trump. From @playbookplus: https://t.co/TeKoHzoekY pic.twitter.com/hMmogYuGlB

Vulnerable House Democrats residing in battleground districts have started to publicly show their frustration with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the “leadership” of chairman Rep. Sean Partick Maloney (D-NY).
Vulnerable Democrat members frustrated over potentially losing in the midterms recount their frustration with the DCCC — the sole job of which is to reelect incumbents and help elect members to vacant seats — and Chairman Maloney — the top Democrat tasked with keeping their House majority. This happened as the committee reportedly “asked vulnerable Democrats to send [Politico] Playbook positive statements about Maloney.”
In an attempt to summarize all the problems between vulnerable members and the committee, one of the Democrats told Playbook anonymously, “This is a real fucking problem.” The same member added, “The Democratic organization whose purpose is to help the party keep the House next year is instead hurting their chances of reelection.”
Additionally, the member argued that the messaging from the committee is terrible, referring to Maloney and the committee targeting former President Donald Trump and blasting Republicans, instead of addressing “pocketbook issues,” which is what happened in Virginia.
So far, 20 House Democrats have retired.
A recent survey found that the Republicans held a 10-point advantage in Congressional preference.
The Gateway Pundit reported:
A new survey from CNBC found Republicans with a 10-point advantage in Congressional preference.
Which party would you prefer to control Congress:
44% – Republicans
34% – Democrats
This is the first time in at least 20 years Republicans have held a lead this big.
The largest previous lead was 4 points.
