Several Democrat governors recently expressed concerns about their party’s radical agenda and “urge[d the] 2020 field not to veer too far left,” according to reporting by the New York Times. But as the video shows, they are far too late – and Democrats taking the debate stage tonight are actually mimicking the exact policies advocated by sitting governors.
“Democrat governors’ supposed concern over their party’s race to the left rings awfully hollow given that they’ve been pushing the extreme policies taking center stage in Detroit in their states,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “As Americans hear the 2020 presidential candidates double down on raising taxes, weakening border security, scorning capitalism, and forcing government run health care on our citizens, it’s important to remember that Democrats in governor’s offices across this country are actively trying to implement their party’s radical agenda.”
