Democrats Sure Aren’t Acting Like They Believe Democracy Is in Danger

“Michigan Republican candidate John Gibbs’[s] narrow and otherwise unlikely primary victory over first-term Rep. Peter Meijer was bolstered by an unusual ally: the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which dropped nearly half a million dollars — more than Gibbs’[s] campaign spent in its entirety — on an ‘attack’ ad designed to sell Gibbs to the GOP base. … Democrats got what they wanted: a more polarizing and therefore less competitive Republican contender for the general election in November. Or, at least, that’s the theory. But for now, in practice, what the DCCC has done is help Trump toss out of office one of the very few congressional Republicans willing to tell the truth about the 2020 election. This is a short-term win for Democrats, perhaps, but it doesn’t bode well for the democracy they claim to uphold.” (08/03/22)
