Democrat Party Disengaged In Some Key Senate Races

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Some political experts have noted that the Democratic Party at the national level is seemingly disengaged from key Senate races, particularly in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.  Democratic Ohio Senate candidate Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio recently said, “There’s a frustration among the rank-and-file Democrats that the leadership doesn’t quite understand where we want this party to be.” This is in contrast to a statement by David Bergstein, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) communications director, “Our incumbents have the advantage in their races, and we have multiple pickup opportunities that remain strongly in play. In the closing weeks, we will continue making strategic decisions and investments to ensure Senate Democrats win in November.”
