DNC Recruitment for 2020 Senate Races is not looking good

But But the midterms...I know. I read it from a lot of you in these forums. Trying to show that the midterms were NOT a win since the House was lost. However, statistically, it always happens. The Russian collusion investigation and 24/7 MSM and social media coverage helped. The constant barrage of negativity. The true wave though was still coming and looks to be back with a vengeance in 2020. Remember, in 2018, the main takeaway was the Senate where seats were "gained" by the Republicans.

Now, with the 2020 election on the horizon the DNC is looking for challengers for multiple states and having a hard time.



“In 2020, the Democratic party is facing a president with a record setting economy, complete and total exoneration from the Mueller report, and he’s got a nimble and well-organized reelection campaign and that’s paired with a fully integrated Republican Party apparatus,” said a Trump insider. Trump believes that his turnaround, and the threat he poses to foes in states he is welcomed in, have scared off challengers to his Senate supporters. Some of those who have decided against running are major Democratic Party stars, leaving the Oval Office giddy with their rejection of a Senate run.


Those who have decided not to run are some heavy hitters in the world of the left. These are not ones you would simply expect to run and hide.

Stacey Abrams, the GA governor nominee who is still declaring voter suppression and fraud in speaking engagements. She is not going to run against Trump ally David Perdue.

How about Beto O'Rourke. A guy who wants to run for president but who lost a Senate race to Cruz has said no. Joaquin Castro has also said no.

Former Obama aide Susan Rice has said no in Maine.

Two well known Iowans including a House Rep and Ag secretary have said no against Joni Enrst.



The National Republican Senatorial Committee expects the trend to continue as wary Democrats reject wooing from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Schumer’s struggle to land his most sought-after recruits is a good indication of difficult it will be for Democrats to mount successful campaigns against our well-funded, battle-tested Republican incumbents,” said NRSC’s Jesse Hunt.


That makes them 0-7 with candidates who should be stepping up. So why not? I think we all know the why and it should scare the left in 2020.

A large part of this is that the POTUS candidates for the DNC, the whole lot, will not help with those running down-ticket.




“He is the turnout factor and the turnout driver in 2020. And if people thought he was vulnerable, then Democratic candidates would be getting on the coattails of their 2020 presidential candidate and coast into office. And we just aren’t seeing this across the states,” added the insider. McLaughlin agreed and said the Democratic presidential candidates are not inspiring others to run down-ticket. “Although I don’t get invited to the Democratic candidate recruitment meetings, it seems that the dynamics of the anti-Trump derangement derby for president is discouraging down-ticket Democrats.
What moderate Democrat wants to run with socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, or Sen. Kamala Harris? Many Democrats know that Joe Biden is much weaker than he looks and is probably not going to win the nomination. In contrast, since the State of the Union address, the president has been increasing his job approval ratings — particularly on the economy and security,” he said.


The fact that top-tier candidates are running shows the fear that is spreading in the DNC and begs to question just who is steering the ship to 2020?

They can win the urban areas, but they must not be confident they can take whole states if they aren't running for Senate.

Dig up Bernie I say.

There just might be enough idiots to vote for him and it will be oh so entertaining to watch him debate Trump.

I've said it here before and I will say it again. Bernie is the only guy crazy enough to debate Trump and potentially gain support.

I would love to see the look on Pelosi's face when she loses the House.

He's talking about the Senate; they'll most likely never lose the House. Not that it matters much anymore; the House more closely resembles a Kindergarten play ground than a legislative body.

She reminds me of Nurse Ratchett from One flew over the Cukcuoo's nest.

If the " Good "Republicans were Smart , which they are Not , going All Out in Blue States in 2020 with TONS of Money and Hammering their Liberal Opponents on the REAL Issues that Matter to Most Americans , " Jobs , Taxes , Immigration , Infrastructure Investment , the Sanctity of Human Life , a Strong Military , and Cleaning Up the Environment would Guarantee them Super Majorities in the House and Senate for Years to come . The Socialist Threat from the Un-American Liberal Democrats Will Never go Away , they must be Silenced and Conquered at the Ballot Box if America is ever to Preserve it's Democratic Republic .

I'd argue that kindergarten-age children are more mature, thoughtful, and rational than Pelosi's crew.

Now, ALL 435 House seats are also up. I did not include that but it is in the crosshairs also. As mentioned above, like AOC, in many areas it is easy to chalk up a win.

However, people are fed up and there is a new census coming that will redraw districts and change the landscape for a decade.

If Trump is handed a RNC Congress when he wins in 2020 the United States will truly change forever and I am looking forward to it. Another SCOTUS nominee too boot I am sure.

Tulsi would give Trump the greatest challenge in a debate.

Pelosi loses her house every time she leaves home for a walk in the neighborhood.

Tulsi is the best Democrat I know of, but she's a Democrat. She supports their agenda, which will end in the destruction of America.

Take it easy on the democrats. It's an awfully daunting task solving all of those issues that don't exist. They are the brave warriors on the front lines fighting against all of those boogeymen they conjured out of thin air. They deserve a respite.

She is a progressive but I don’t really think she supports the agenda of screw America.

I do think she scares the crap out of Trump though. The house knows she is possibly the only one that can unseat him so they are being smart and keeping their mouth shut about her.

We all witnessed 2016 and they don’t want that to happen again against Trump.

Smart move if ya ask me.
