President Trump is doing an amazing job for the country and the Republican Party.
Trump’s accomplishment with the economy are making Dems think twice before challenging their GOP counterparts.
President Trump, riding the surging economy to better approval ratings, is giving top-tier potential Democratic Senate candidates pause as they mull taking on Republican candidates with strong ties to the White House in 2020.
At least seven Democrats have refused to enter Senate races in states the party has invested in, a surprise since some of those states have been judged on the verge of turning liberal blue.
As a result, the party is scrambling for new challengers to Republican incumbents in Texas, Georgia, Iowa, Colorado, Montana, and Maine.
“The president’s policies to make America great again are working and his message is resonating. What Democrat wants to run against success?” said GOP and Trump 2016 pollster John McLaughlin.
Considered an easy target during the 2018 midterm congressional elections, when special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia election interference investigation was hot and the economy not, the White House has seen the playing field radically changed in Trump’s favor.
