Virus, economy, Trump and cash hamper GOP's bid for House

By ALAN FRAM

Republicans are brandishing the latest weapon in their uphill fight for House control this November: votes by moderate Democrats to pass a $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill promising benefits for immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally.

They're also celebrating their recent capture of a Democratic-held House seat north of Los Angeles. They say it shows they can win suburban districts whose centrist voters fled the GOP two years ago, costing it the chamber's majority.

Moderate districts ringing American cities are still the key House battleground. Yet five months from Election Day, Republican prospects for winning control seem slim.

GOP candidates are burdened by President Donald Trump’s lingering unpopularity with suburban voters, his slow and erratic handling of the pandemic and an economy with only the faintest heartbeat. They face a potentially crippling fundraising disadvantage against pivotal Democratic incumbents.

Coping with those disadvantages is all the more difficult for GOP congressional candidates in the era of Trump, who overshadows messaging by down-ballot contenders.

“For many voters, the 2020 election will be a referendum on the president. That’s the bad news,” said former Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa.

GOP operatives see an opening with the massive coronavirus bill crafted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. It passed the House with support by just one Republican.

Citing its direct payments for immigrant workers in the U.S. illegally and other “asinine provisions,” the House Republican campaign arm all but promised attack ads.

The House bill is dead in the GOP-led Senate and opposed by Trump. Underscoring the discomfort it produced, 10 of the 30 Democrats from districts Trump carried in the 2016 election voted against the legislation.

“For the Trump 30, anything Trump-related is in the danger zone,” said Scott Reed, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s senior political strategist.

Yet Pelosi stuffed the bill with priorities Democrats could embrace, including nearly $1 trillion to help financially struggling local governments.

“My ‘yes’ vote shows I’m trying to get $612 million back to my district,” said freshman Rep. Andy Kim, D-N.J., citing the share he said his communities would receive. Kim represents a central New Jersey district Trump won in 2016.

Also buoying Democrats is moderate voters' unremitting dislike for Trump's abrasive behavior and harsh policies. The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll this month found 61% of suburban voters disapprove of Trump, little changed over three years.

To counter that, Republicans have sought House candidates like Mike Garcia, who won this month's Los Angeles-area special election. He's a businessman, retired Navy fighter pilot and son of a Mexican immigrant.

Garcia represents a nod toward diversity for the overwhelmingly white House GOP. Republicans have sought more female candidates, too, hoping to improve an embarrassing look: Just 13 of the 198 House Republicans are women, and two are retiring.

Garcia has no prior political record for Democrats to attack, flipping the script on dozens of freshman Democrats seeking reelection who now must defend two years of congressional votes.

Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., who leads his chamber’s GOP campaign arm, wrote colleagues that Republicans can regain the House by “exploiting the legislative records of our opponents with our diverse field of candidates.”

But money shortfalls are a problem.

All 53 remaining House Democrats in seats the GOP targeted last year, mostly from Trump-won districts and freshmen, have outraised their Republican challengers. In all but 10 of those races, the Democrat had at least a 2-1 advantage.

“For Republican challengers who don't have high name ID, that kind of financial disadvantage is almost insurmountable,” said former Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., who like Dent clashed with Trump.

Only about four dozen of the House’s 435 districts seem seriously competitive. Republicans must gain 17 seats to win control.

Since Republicans have more challengers than Democrats, they’ve been hurt more by the coronavirus shutdown. The lack of face-to-face events has complicated attracting public attention and badly impaired fundraising, especially for little-known upstarts.

Despite virtual fundraisers and digital solicitations, both parties’ operatives say the ailing economy and lack of physical gatherings have significantly cut contributions. Democratic consultant Sarah Elizabeth Pole estimates a potential 50% drop in giving to congressional candidates this quarter, varying by campaign.

“Some people may not be writing as big a check as they would have three months ago,” said Ashley Hinson, a Republican Iowa state legislator challenging Democratic Rep. Abby Finkenauer.

Still, Hinson raised a healthy $1.6 million through March. And she said she’s “having the conversation” about possibly holding physical campaign events in late summer.

Wide-ranging Republican attacks on Democrats have included accusations that they're socialists and blasts for backing Pelosi to become speaker, impeaching Trump and not blaming China for the pandemic.

With Trump and the economy setting the background tone, Democrats have focused on health care, which carried them to victory in 2018. They're emphasizing Republican efforts to end former President Barack Obama’s health care law, which guarantees coverage for millions of Americans.

“House Democrats are the firewall against Republican efforts to take away health care during this worldwide pandemic,” said Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., who leads her party's House political team.

Democrats must defend more seats, including from upstate New York and New York City's Staten Island; Oklahoma City; Salt Lake City; Charleston, South Carolina; Iowa; and Virginia.

Houston-area Democratic freshman Rep. Lizzie Fletcher, who is white, faces a well-funded GOP challenger in Wesley Hunt, a black Army veteran. In California's Orange County, freshman Rep. Gil Cisneros, who's Latino, has a rematch against Young Kim, a Korean American former state assemblywoman.

Republicans seem certain to lose two North Carolina seats with redrawn district lines and could lose another in west Texas. They're defending vulnerable seats in Pennsylvania; central Illinois; Syracuse, New York; and suburban Atlanta, Dallas and Houston. Higher November turnout may help Democrats oust Garcia in California.

Whatever campaigning looks like, Democrats have been drawn to the formulation Republican Ronald Reagan used to help win the 1980 presidential election.

“I ask people, ‘Do you like being sicker, poorer and weaker than you were four years ago?'” said Sri Kulkarni, a Democrat seeking a suburban Houston seat vacated by a Republican. “Because that's the situation we're in right now."

GOP candidates are burdened by President Donald Trump’s lingering unpopularity with suburban voters, his slow and erratic handling of the pandemic and an economy with only the faintest heartbeat

And if those candidates remain loyal to Trump, they're making their own beds.

Lots of time between now and November for anything to happen.

Knock wood Trump and his fellow so called 'elite' won't do a wag the dog. But knowing Trump and the 'elite' profit even more during wars, another invasion is probably already on the table.

Trump's shown he's a failure as a war time president as the virus deaths continue to mount and the economy continues to go farther south.

While he's back on his golf course - where the tab's once again picked up by taxpayers.

I had to double check to verify the House bill did indeed included illegal immigrants and was surprised that it did.

Why did they do this?

Because many businesses, like the meat processing plants and many others, employ illegal immigrants.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Trump is a complete failure.

Biden 2020

5 ( +5 / -0 )

And if those candidates remain loyal to Trump, they're making their own beds. 

So they should be on the losing side?

Lots of time between now and November for anything to happen. 

Yes, but Trump is too close to 50% and that’s not what any challenger wants going into a general.

Knock wood Trump and his fellow so called 'elite' won't do a wag the dog. But knowing Trump and the 'elite' profit even more during wars, another invasion is probably already on the table.

You think for all the talk and bravado that these liberal left-wingers spout in Silicon Valley they’ll vote for someone like Biden? None of them will because they know Democrats and their policies will punish these rich elites or the job givers. When they close the curtain on Election Day, that lever will be pulled for Trump.

Trump's shown he's a failure as a war time president as the virus deaths continue to mount and the economy continues to go farther south. 

While he's back on his golf course - where the tab's once again picked up by taxpayers.

Failure, hardly, even the governors don’t think so, they said, he’s a man of his word and of course he can go golfing, Obama golfs and the tax payer still has to pay for that as well. I don’t like the man, so I don’t want to pay, but he has a right to go and play.

The democrats weren't really the "losing side" during the last election, two years ago, were they?

You have a very skewed image of Silicon Valley. In reality it is not (and never has been) a liberal enclave. On the contrary, it's a lot of very rich white men, who typically didn't really vote Clinton last time around.

by the person the apology was given to, Charlamagne the God. He didnt readily accept it and cover the whole thing up like other Dems do.

That comment is going to hurt Biden and the down ballot candidates. Because if no one shows up to vote for Biden, also no one to check the box for all the other Dems on the ballot too.

It was?? Was there a national poll of some sort?

the excuse will be voter suppression.

but the reality is that some people are so turned off about Biden they just wont vote at all. Thats not voter suppression, thats voter apathy about your candidate. Black voters dont even need to vote for Trump. Just dont vote for Biden and all the local Dems and its a landslide.

Bidens comments from the basement are causing this apathy. People who dont want to vote for Trump are realizing they dont want to vote for Biden either. So just stay home. Its definitely going to get worse once he must come out of the controlled environment of the basement.

He didnt. he had his black spokeswoman release a statement saying his comments were "in jest" through Twitter and then make the liberal media rounds to attack Trump somehow.

Charlamagne isnt buying it. He responded: "The whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt. and he (Biden) has been a very intricate part of that system"

“He really was one of the people on the front lines when it came to the war on drugs, and mass incarceration. If he wants to be president, he needs to fix that,”

“My overall takeaway from the conversation is that I heard him talk about things he did for black people back in the day but what have you done for me lately is my motto. I see black communities catching hell no matter who is in the White House,” he said.

He did? When did he apologize to Charlamagne exactly?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

so the end result is that Charlamagne expects Biden to pick a black female VP because of Bidens comments.

Biden is trapped now, because if he doesnt, he loses the critical black vote to Trump (or the black vote stays home, which is same result).

This along with the recent California election when a Republican won a seat that was 8 points Democrat 2 years ago and 6 points for Hillary in 2016. The Dem election problems are just beginning.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

He didnt.

So why did you just say he did, then?

Charlamagne isnt buying it.

Except his answer doesn't have anything to do with any apologies. He was reacting to the interview as a whole. You should look for the context of your quotes instead of simply copy pasting them from the NY Post's website. Or did you actually know this and are now simply trying to frame the whole thing another way on purpose?

Downballot voting is relevant to the topic.

When the national candidate (Biden) is weak or there is voting apathy, the House, Senate and local races are also affected.

Most times voters dont know anything about the actual down ballot candidates, they just pick them because they have a (D) or (R) next to their name. Dems dont turn out for Biden, all the Trump voters will select all the (R) people all the way down the ballot and we have a Republican House win.

'I should not have been so cavalier': Joe Biden apologizes for suggesting black Trump voters 'ain't black'

Biden Apologizes for Saying Black Voters ‘Ain’t Black’ if They’re Considering Trump

JUST IN: Joe Biden apologizes for 'You Ain't Black' comments

Its all over the place, many articles.

As I said, Joe didnt even have the nerve to apologize directly to Charlamagne. He had his spokeswoman do it, who happens to be a black woman. He thought the blowback would be less if she did than if he did it himself. Charlemagne's response to Bidens indirect apology indicates it was not accepted, as he said Biden is part of the racial problems we have now.

The reason this is important is that you can deflect all you want, but the comments are out there in public, are really bad racial comments and will impact the black vote in the election.

For China, very bad and for the governors equally as bad if they don’t open up the country, but I think they will,because they know for one thing that the president wants the country to open in the liberal Democrats don’t, that goes against them.

I should not have been so cavalier': Joe Biden apologizes for suggesting black Trump voters 'ain't black'

Here are five direct quotes from the article - why don't you get back on topic and reply to them? If you can...

*GOP candidates are burdened by President Donald Trump’s lingering unpopularity with suburban voters, his slow and erratic handling of the pandemic and an economy with only the faintest heartbeat. They face a potentially crippling fundraising disadvantage against pivotal Democratic incumbents.*

*Coping with those disadvantages is all the more difficult for GOP congressional candidates in the era of *Trump, who overshadows messaging by down-ballot contenders.

*“For many voters, the 2020 election will be a referendum on the president. *That’s the bad news,” said former Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa.

*All 53 remaining House Democrats in seats the GOP targeted last year, mostly from Trump-won districts and freshmen, have outraised their Republican challengers. In all but 10 of those races, the Democrat had at least a 2-1 advantage.*

*“For Republican challengers who don't have high name ID, that kind of financial disadvantage is almost insurmountable,” said former Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., who like Dent clashed with Trump.*

As I said, Joe didnt even have the nerve to apologize directly to Charlamagne

But you explicitly said he did, though: "by the person the apology was given to, Charlamagne the God."

Why would you say that if you knew it wasn't true?

Charlemagne's response to Bidens indirect apology indicates it was not accepted

Except Charlamagne wasn't responding to any apologies, he was explaining to the CNN anchor what his takeaway from the whole conversation was: https://twitter.com/KFILE/status/1263992047989645317

When you actually listen to it, his statements don't contain any rejection of any apology at all.

So, again, you're dealing in half-truths and context manipulation. (Because you just read a New York Post article and assumed it was actually serious news, I imagine)

Now, to get back a little closer to the topic, will Biden's comments influence his popularity with black voters in the coming election? He was at 83% with them a few days ago. I seriously doubt what he said will change much of that, even if the right wing media machine does everything it can to do so. After all it's not like he called mexicans "rapists" or accused a black elected statesman of not being born in America.

GOP candidates are **burdened by President Donald Trump’s lingering unpopularity*** 

But they know how popular he is not just with his base, but a growing number of independents.

https://www.barrons.com/articles/trump-will-win-the-2020-election-investing-experts-say-hes-better-for-stocks-and-the-economy-51588507201

Nearly 90% of Big Money investors approve of the Federal Reserve’s moves to combat the coronavirus crisis’s impact on financial markets, and a near-equal percentage give thumbs up to public health officials’ response to the outbreak. President Donald Trump, in contrast, gets a vote of confidence for his handling of the health crisis from just 48% of poll respondents, while only 45% express confidence in the response of Congress.

We'll be waiting...

Oh, we will be.
