The Coronavirus pandemic has all-but paralyzed the political world, but while Republicans don’t appear worried about their chances of retaining The White House and Senate, and winning back the House, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is a little worried about their chances of winning the Senate in 2020.
In a fundraising letter to supporters, the DSCC writes that the Coronavirus “has completely upended the Democratic Party’s strategy to flip the Senate,” because they had to halt all of their grassroots, on the ground campaign efforts.
“With traditional campaign tactics off the table and millions of Americans staying home, we have no choice but to develop an entirely new, unprecedented strategy to flip the Senate,” wrote the DSCC Executive Director Scott Fairchild
The DSCC’s counterparts, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), is pushing a much different and positive message that focuses on the recent blocking of Coronavirus stimulus legislation by Senate Democrats.
The DSCC is also focusing on the insider trading allegations made against Republicans senators as the pandemic began to hit the U.S. but seems to conveniently forget to mention that Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein is also one of those senators who allegedly financially benefitted off of the spreading pandemic.
