With Democrats in disarray, Chuck Schumer is living a political nightmare.
But he was just hit with a major problem he never saw coming.
And Mitch McConnell just made one promise that left Chuck Schumer quaking in his boots.
The battle for control of the Senate is heating up as campaign season kicks into high gear.
Chuck Schumer is in the fight of his political life to try to maintain his tenuous grasp on Senate control.
With only 50 Democrat Senators, Schumer has no margin for error if he wants to keep his job as Senate Majority Leader.
Schumer knows he’s in big trouble heading into the Midterm elections.
Joe Biden’s disastrous Presidency is dragging down Democrats across the country.
New Hampshire, Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona are expected to be the biggest races in the Senate this year.
Now, Republicans think they have an opportunity to put another state in play that could be a major problem for Democrats.
The once-reliable Republican state of Colorado has shifted Left in recent years, giving Joe Biden an easy victory in 2020.
Despite the Blue lean of the state, the incumbent Democrat Senator, Michael Bennett, won close elections in his last two Senate races.
But with a Republican wave building for the fall, Mitch McConnell is going “all in” on the Colorado Senate race.
Republican candidate Joe O’Dea, a construction company owner who’s running as a political outsider, is hammering Bennett over inflation and high gas prices.
McConnell made a surprise appearance at a major fundraiser for O’Dea in Washington, D.C., where he told the crowd that Colorado is a priority race for the GOP.
“I just want to assure everybody, we’re going to be all-in in Colorado,” McConnell told the crowd. “We think we can win this race.”
Referring to Colorado’s Blue lean, McConnell described O’Dea as “the perfect candidate for the nature of your state.”
“I wanted to dispel any notion that you may have that we’re not going to play in Colorado,” McConnell added, answering any remaining questions on whether or not the GOP would make an investment in Colorado this cycle.
The Senate map is expanding for Republicans, and defending another vulnerable incumbent will leave Schumer on his heels.
After he won the state by 13 points in 2020, Colorado coming into play shows how unpopular Biden has become.
Polling shows that Biden’s approval rating in Colorado is underwater and still sinking.
While an O’Dea victory would have been considered a longshot at the beginning of the year, the GOP scored a major upset in the Senate victory during the last Republican wave.
In 2014, Cory Gardner managed to knock off incumbent Democrat Mark Udall in a close election.
With Republicans going all in on the Colorado Senate race, Chuck Schumer just got another major headache to deal with in the battle for control of the Upper Chamber.
