Democrats Are Inching Closer To A 2018 Senate Win, McConnell Is Freaking Out
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) expressed his concern about Republicans losing seats to Democrats in the 2018 elections.
The Republican Senator notices that having a very unpopular president and no legislative accomplishments could lead to Democrats winning back the Senate in 2018.
Politico reported the anxiety Republicans have about the upcoming elections:
“Not every Republican is confident about the Senate, either. McConnell has privately expressed concern about Trump’s approval ratings and lack of legislative wins, according to two people familiar with this thinking. A student of political history, the Senate leader, has warned that the 2018 map shouldn’t give Republicans solace, reminding people that the party in power during a president’s first term often suffers electorally.”
McConnell is right to be scared. As Trump continues to become more and more popular and the GOP having multiple problems, Senate seats will be opening up and Democrats are looking to take over.
Republicans rightfully terrified because they see the outlines of Democratic wave building against them in 2018.
