I’m all for better senators, and Manchin is the worst, but this is bad timing, guys:
A trio of progressives who helped launch Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 2018 upsetcampaign are now setting their sights on Senate Democrats.
The co-founders of No Excuses PAC — Saikat Chakrabarti, Corbin Trent and Zack Exley — are starting a search for candidates to challenge incumbent Democrats they say are standing in the way of ambitious action to end the coronavirus pandemic and revive the economy.
The answer to Manchin and Sinema is to elect more Democrats in 2022, not to You’re Fired’ed the ones we already have and return the gavel to amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell; also, both these Senators are not up for reelection until 2024. So put your energy into step 1: WORK ON ELECTING DEMOCRATS IN 2022.
Wait until we have a super-majority of the Senate in 2022 and then primary the eff out of the Blue Dogs in 2024; I’m all for it.
