For most of this year, Democrats have used their push for more gun control laws as a main part of the midterm campaign platforms.
In addition to the call for more gun control, Democrats also used the GOP tax cuts as a campaign issue, claiming that only the wealthy are benefitting so they want to end the corporate tax cuts.
After Thursday’s testimonies before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats are turning to a new campaign platform.
A growing number of Democrats are campaigning against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the need to block President Trump from placing any conservative on the Supreme Court.
(Washington Post) – The emotional battle over sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh burst into the midterm elections after a dramatic week of wrenching testimony and raw partisan rage on Capitol Hill, tossing an explosive and sensitive issue into the final weeks of the closely fought campaign for control of Congress.
Tight races already hinging largely on how women feel about President Trump have been further roiled by the emotional appearance Thursday by Christine Blasey Ford and the anger-filled response from Kavanaugh.
The issue is resonating in two distinct ways: It threatens to further erode support for House Republicans already struggling to survive in centrist suburban districts, while in Senate races it is giving GOP challengers in pro-Trump states a chance to inspire previously unenthusiastic conservatives.
In Indiana, for example, the Republican challenger to Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly, who announced opposition to Kavanaugh following the testimony, released a video over the weekend saying the effort to derail Kavanaugh “tells you how Democrats roll” and calling it a “real eye-opener for folks across Indiana” that Donnelly “takes his instructions from [Democratic leader] Chuck Schumer.” …
Democrats across the country will follow the leads of Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein in campaigning against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.
Even if Kavanaugh is proven to be innocent, Democrats will continue to verbally and publicly convict him without any evidence.
This shows that Democrats care nothing about the American judicial system of innocent until proven guilty.
For the past decade, Democrats have shown just how anti-American they are and how little they care about the US Constitution, law or the American people.
The only thing Democrats care about is turning America into a socialist nation.
