As Republicans head to the voting booths today in Colorado, one thing is clear to many voters in western states: Democrats are in a panic about holding states like Colorado and Washington.
“Washington’s Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, meanwhile, has spent more than $1 million on television ads in recent weeks, including two attacking her Republican opponent, Tiffany Smiley, in a state President Joe Biden won by nearly 20 points…
In a poll conducted last week and obtained by POLITICO, Murray is leading Smiley by 5 percentage points, just over the survey’s 4.1 percent margin of error. The internal Smiley poll, conducted by The Tarrance Group, had Murray with 48 percent of the vote, compared to Smiley at 43 percent.
‘She was the very first Senate incumbent in the country to run a negative campaign against her challenger,’ Ed Goeas, president of The Tarrance Group, said of Murray. “That shows how deep of a problem she’s in.’…
The majority of Colorado voters have an unfavorable view of Biden, 56 percent, while just 42 percent approve of the job he’s doing as president, according to polling this month by Global Strategy Group for ProgressNow, a liberal advocacy group in Colorado.
In just the last few weeks, a Democratic super PAC has poured $3.9 million into television ads in the Republican primary race..
The liberal group’s staggering TV ad buy in the GOP primary is on top of other misleading mailers being sent to voters — falsely claiming Hanks was endorsed by the Colorado Republican Party — that are now the subject of lawsuits by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the state GOP and O’Dea’s campaign. The NRSC has not publicly taken a position on the primary. O’Dea’s campaign estimates Democratic spending to meddle in the primary could total as much as $10 million, given the barrage of high-quality mailers that have been sent out across the state.”
Democrats are losing on the issues in states that were assumed safely Blue no more than a year ago. Now, they are spending millions to try and bail out five-term incumbents and meddle in Republican primaries.
The panic is real…
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “The Biden agenda has been a disaster, and no one is more responsible for it than the President’s enablers in the U.S. Senate. Poll after poll shows deep dissatisfaction at the state of our economy, gas prices, the border, and more, yet Senators like Patty Murray and Michael Bennet have done nothing to offer any new ideas than what comes out of the White House. There’s a lot of national uncertainty right now, but one thing is real: Democrats are freaking out about November.”
