Democratic officials finally recognize the damage Hillary does to the bottom line but their liberal voters don’t agree.
Several Democratic officials running in the 2018 elections have fought to separate themselves from the Clinton name. Hillary’s poor behavior since the 2016 presidential elections has become such an embarrassment to the party that those running in the current elections stand to lose the swing-votes if they can’t get space between them. Guilt by association.
So much so that, it’s causing a divide between die-hard Clinton voters and Dems running for office, or at least those who actually want to win. This new trend makes the Clintons a massive threat to the party. In essence, Clinton is tearing her party apart from the inside out.
The final straw? Clinton’s speech in India where she, still harping over the elections, spoke horribly about the American people. “there’s all that red in the middle, where Trump won. Now, I win the coasts, I win Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” Clinton claimed. Which comes off as pig-headed but she didn’t stop there.
Hillary continued: “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backward. You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.”
“When does Hillary Clinton ride off into the sunset?” the host asked in the interview, which was flagged by CNN.
“I don’t know, not soon enough, I guess,” the senator responded.
“I mean, she’s bashing the middle of the country and my state again. I don’t need her to do that,” Joel Heitkamp continued.
“Yeah, I know,” said Heidi Heitkamp.
According to Conservative Tribune, Heitkamp, who is one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate, faces a tough re-election bid in November.
She’ll likely face off in November against either state Sen. Tom Campbell or U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, both Republicans.
Trump handily carried North Dakota, winning 63 percent of the vote. Clinton received 27 percent.
So the question we have is Heitkamp, and others, separating themselves from Clinton because they realize the type of cancer the Clinton’s have become or is this just another ‘power-move’ to win swing votes? Let us know what you think in the comments.
