Chuck Schumer ran for his life after suffering one career-crushing defeat
Chuck Schumer had no idea what hit him.
The top Senate Democrat thought 2020 was shaping up to be the year Democrats returned to power.
But Chuck Schumer was sent running for his life after suffering one career-crushing defeat.
Democrats thought the 2020 Senate map favored them.
Schumer saw Republicans defending more seats than Democrats and that the left had the ability to flip the 4 seats necessary to put them in charge of the Senate.
However, something strange happened.
Schumer was turned down by his top recruits in Colorado, Georgia, and Montana.
And you can add North Carolina’s Dan McReady to list of Democrats taking a pass on the Senate.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has again failed to recruit a promising Democratic candidate to run for the Senate.
Dan McCready, Democratic candidate running for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, confirmed in an interview Thursday with WCNC Charlotte that he had met with Schumer to discuss running for Republican incumbent Thom Tillis’s Senate seat. But McCready said that he was uninterested in stepping away from his House race to run for the Senate in 2020.
“I did meet with [Schumer],” McCready said. “I’ve also been very clear that I’m not running for the Senate.”
McCready is an entrepreneur from Charlotte, North Carolina, who served in the Iraq War as a captain in the Marine Corps. He has never before held elected office.
Democrats are turning their back on Senate races for one simple reason: Donald Trump will be at the top of the ticket.
They know that, despite the fake news media’s claims of an impending Democrat landslide, Donald Trump is in a much stronger position to win re-election.
And running in a red state with Trump at the top of the ticket spells certain defeat.
