On June 26 and 27, 20 candidates took the stage for the first Democratic primary debates of the 2020 electoral season. Communication is key to any successful campaign, and each candidate took this lesson to heart.
This past Tuesday, Democrats were wholeheartedly expecting to sweep through the midterm elections, regaining control of both houses in Congress and proving to America that the rise of President Trump was a mistake of epic proportions. Yet, Democrats came up short in the Senate with Republicans increasing their majority.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that the Democrats will be taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives after gaining more than 30 seats in the 2018 midterm elections. Two years of unified government control under the Republicans will be coming to an end in January.
With only a few weeks remaining before the midterm elections, Democrats are hoping to retake the majority in Congress. Since losing the presidential election two years ago, the party has undergone a slight rebuild, trimming the fat and adding some new pieces. Still, one thing is holding them back and will prove terminal if they don’t pull the plug fast: HRC.
It’s that time of year again. With the 2018 election season officially kicking off in Texas just a few weeks ago and in Illinois just a few days ago, the “blue wave” so widely heralded should roll in soon. For those especially optimistic, it already did. But the two elections represent a struggle for power in the Democratic Party. Big money is flowing, and heads are butting.
