Democrats have one year to go before the midterm elections in 2022. They warn voters that Republicans are “too dangerous” to control Congress and pose a threat to democracy’s health. Monday’s memo from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), obtained by Politico, criticized House Republicans’ “reckless” and “dangerous vision for America.” It stated that they show every day how “unserious and cynical” their return to power.
The memo stated that “The stakes were clear – House Republicans have become too dangerous for American families.” Washington Republicans began to loosen their grip on power and launched a complete assault on American democracy. This culminated in a brutal assault on Capitol Hill and the introduction of anti-voter legislation throughout the country.
In the memo, Republicans were also accused of being a threat to public health over their response to COVID-19’s pandemic. They claimed they have been “hellbent upon making it more devastating”
DCCC stated that House Republicans face a difficult task convincing battleground voters to vote for them in the Nov. 8, 20,22 election. The memo stated that the DCCC had raised over $106.5 million since Jan, $17.5 million more than in 2019.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), which reported last month that they had raised $105million from the beginning of the year to the end of September, a 74% increase over the nine months prior.
“The DCCC releasing a one year out a memo a week late embodies incompetence,” Mike Berg, NRCC spokesperson, said to Fox News Monday. They don’t have a coherent message or strategy, and their memo doesn’t deserve the paper it was written on. The DCCC memo comes as Democrats try to keep their razor-thin majority in Congress. They are still reeling from the loss in Virginia, where Republican Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
ABC News/Washington Post conducted a poll on Sunday that showed 51% of registered voters said they would support the Republican candidate for their congressional district, while only 41% said they would support the Democrat.
