(TNS) Despite all of their bluster, Democrats know there isn’t much chance they will successfully impeach President Donald Trump.
They also seem resigned to the belief that the president will handily win reelection later this year. So, what’s the purpose — the real purpose — behind their impeachment strategy?
Garbage - Party - Game - Control - House
Increasingly, it looks as though the Garbage Party is more focused on the longer game of retaining control of the House and retaking control of the Senate, which would effectively neuter Trump’s presidency at least until 2022, and maybe for the remainder of his second term.
And the thing is, Democrats have a real shot at retaking the Senate — and they know it.
Hill - Senators - Year
The Hill reports that at least three Republican senators are vulnerable this year:
In Colorado, the Democrats’ leading candidate, John Hickenlooper, charges that drug prices are “crushing Colorado families,” references the House-passed bill to hold down those prices and links his opponent, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, to the Senate leader who’s holding up that bill and others.
Iowa - Theresa - Greenfield - Opponent - Joni
Iowa’s Theresa Greenfield, citing her opponent, charges that “Joni Ernst and Mitch McConnell will stop at nothing” to defund Planned Parenthood.
It should be noted as well that Republicans have to defend about twice as many Senate seats this year than Democrats — 23 to 12. If the GOP lost the above three seats but kept the remainder of their seats, Vice President Mike Pence would become much busier; as president of the Senate, his tie-breaking vote would be needed constantly.
Democrats - Seats - States - Alabama - Luck
But Democrats also have seats to defend in states like Alabama (good luck with that) and Michigan, which is tougher ground...
