Former Rep. Barney Frank suggested a slogan that Democrats could use to end the reign of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Frank suggested the slogan during a Friday appearance on MSNBC.
“The Republican electorate — and what happens is the dynamic as the Republicans get harder and harder in this far-right Trump fealty, some people leave the Republican Party, so that means the remainder are this hardcore,” Frank replied.
“Mitch McConnell is going to pay a price,” he said. “And frankly, I think the way this is going to play out the Republican senators are now making the toughest choice a politician can make, between the primary and the final — between making sure you can get renominated and the winning in November.”
“And I think you have a number of Republican senators — you mentioned many of them — who are very much in that bind, and I will tell you I have a slogan that I am suggesting to the Democratic candidates for the Senate all over the country, ‘You don’t have to live in Kentucky to vote against Mitch McConnell.’ He doesn’t get to be majority leader unless Cory Gardener (R-CO) and Susan Collins (R-ME) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) and all those are re-elected and that’s where I think things are going to play out politically,” Franks said.
Democrats have a powerful case against Trump — but they keep making a key mistake
On the floor of the Senate, House impeachment managers have delivered a thorough, factual and compelling case for removing President Donald Trump from office. He abused his power by using his office to induce Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into launching investigations of his political enemies, and then he obstructed Congress in its efforts to uncover the details of this scheme.
The managers’ ability to present the evidence for these charges for hours on end has been impressive, and they’re earning plaudits for their furtive efforts, even though removal of the president remains supremely unlikely.
‘He gave away the game’: Doctors condemn Trump threat to slash Medicare funding
"We've long suspected he would try to gut Medicare in a second term."
An advocacy group composed of doctors and medical professionals on Wednesday joined the chorus denouncing President Donald Trump for threatening to slash Medicare and Social Security funding "at some point" should he win a second term in November.
Mitch McConnell rigged the impeachment trial in a way that traps GOP lawmakers into backing Trump: columnist
Writing for the Washington Post, Paul Waldman explained that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made it nearly impossible for anyone in his caucus to vote in defiance of President Donald Trump and still hope to have any future in politics.
While it has been a given that multiple Republican lawmakers are under the gun because they represent so-called "swing states," Waldman said that states are less likely to flip back and forth in future elections because the battleline between Democrats and Republicans have hardened under Trump.
