The New Hampshire Senate race, at this point, isn’t all that close. Hassan could still get the chop, but the GOP isn’t all that confident, dropping its ad buys, and the Dems aren’t too worried. This isn’t a desperate bleeder of a race and yet Dems keep showing up.
Last week, former Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) — a self-proclaimed Granite State newbie — expressed excitement about touching down in the fall.
“First ever visit to New Hampshire and I made sure to take a short break from campaigning for my friend [Hassan] to enjoy some amazing New England Clam Chowder and a lobster roll!” Jones tweeted, along with a photo displaying his big grin.
Is anyone in New Hampshire really seeking the services of a guy who spent 5 minutes in the Senate repping Alabama? Or Jon Ossoff?
A pair of senators from two of Democrats’ top swing states, Jon Ossoff of Georgia and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, have also stumped there to help keep the Senate majority intact.
Isn’t there a Senate race in Georgia, Ossoff could be helping with?
Booker and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) have also paid visits
Not a major shock. Both would love a shot at 2024 if they could get it. Jones is a stranger one. And Ossoff? Seriously. Then again this is a guy who blew a ton of money on a previous race and then rode the coattails into the Senate, a role he’s completely unqualified for and we hardly hear anything about him. So in true Beto style, he may be looking at the White House. It makes as little sense as the rest of his ridiculous career.
What all of this really is a vote of no confidence in Biden and Kamala. Democrats are feeling out primary options on the assumption that there’s no future for either of them.
Also this suggests that the Dems may end up with a very crowded primary. Again.
