Dems Want Biden To Pick A Republican For “Trans-Party”, Romney’s Name Thrown In

Published

on

A reporter covering Joe Biden’s campaign reported that Biden was asked at a New Hampshire event,  about choosing a Republican running mate for a “Unity Party”, and immediately minds drifted to failed former Presidential candidate, Never Trumper Rep. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), to run against President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Biden said he would, indeed, consider choosing a Republican for a running mate. Responses from average Democrats showed both alarm and fear.

Politico had already floated the idea of a Biden/Romney ticket almost two weeks ago, conjuring up a favorite of their’s, deceased former Senator and Never Trumper, John McCain.

From the Politico article:

“Biden is one of our most esteemed and admired leaders. His favorability ratings have touched the 60-percentile range. He appeals to the kind of working-class voters Democrats have been bleeding to Republicans over the years. Most important, he could make a good president, and not just because he has a deep mix of domestic and foreign policy experience; he also has the character for the job. His eulogy at the McCain funeral was not just a riveting and poignant tribute to his good friend, but a testament to Biden’s own genuine grace and good humor. The speech salved some of the grief of those in our nation who worry that McCain’s passing has left a gaping hole in America’s moral fabric.”

“Now here’s what Biden should do next: Pick a Republican running mate in a “trans-party” third-party run for the White House,”Politico wrote.

Speculation had started days after Trump’s nomination in Cleveland at the Republican National Convention in 2016, that Romney would be one of many Republicans who would attempt a primary challenge against Trump, however, Trump is enjoying a shocking 95% approval rating in the GOP.

 

Looks like full steam ahead…

PA Senator And NJ Congressman Leave Democrat Party

Published

on

As the Democrat party has shifted leftward and opened the door to illegal voters to replace the dwindling popularity of the party’s agenda, numerous officeholders, especially districts that favor President Donald J. Trump, have fled the party to vote alongside the Republicans.

John Yudichak a Pennsylvania state senator left the Democrat Party, perhaps triggering another defection in the US House, a Congressman from New Jersey, who both claimed support for Trump was a factor in their decision.

According to local PA news, WESA Yudichak, “who represents Carbon County and part of Luzerne, including the city of Wilkes-Barre, is now an Independent. But he plans to caucus with Republicans. Yudichak was first elected to the state House as a Democrat in 1999. He’s been a member of the Senate’s Democratic caucus since 2011. ”

Yudichak told reporters that his biggest concern was the opposition from the Democrats he received for his support of the anthracite coal industry to boost his district, and ​because of his support for natural gas drilling.

“There are great opponents of the natural gas industry within the Democratic caucus that have started to make it a purist issue,” Yudichak said.

Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) had a recent and high profile defection, Thursday, after he voted to not impeach Trump, claiming he did not leave the Democrats, the Democrats left him.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin, a member of the Democrat party who is also in a pro-Trump district, remained with the “party line” despite the vocal outrage by her voters over the impeachment of Trump, was faced by angry mobs this month at a town hall meeting, where she talked about why she was voting against the wishes of her constituents:

The focus on the 31 House Reps who are considered to be in vulnerable seats for 2020 because of the amount of Trump supporters in their districts was an intense focus during the impeachment trials.

The Hill reported:

“All but a few of the 31 House Democrats representing crossover districts where President Trump is popular voted to impeach him on Wednesday after trying to avoid taking such a tough vote for most of this year.

Only Reps. Jeff Van Drew (N.J.) — who is expected to switch to the GOP in the coming days — and Collin Peterson (Minn.) voted against both articles of impeachment accusing Trump of abuse of power and obstructing Congress.

Freshman Rep. Jared Golden (Maine) was the only Democrat to split his votes in favor of one article but not the other. He voted to impeach Trump for abuse of power, but not obstruction of Congress.”

Time will tell if those public servants chose well.
