In an evenly divided Senate, Chuck Schumer’s career depends on keeping an iron grip on 50 different Senators.
Now he has an absolute nightmare on his hands.
And Chuck Schumer went through the roof at this devastating news about a key Democrat.
Chuck Schumer is facing a devastating career blow after one Democrat’s bad behavior comes to light.
Joe Biden’s train wreck of a Presidency is destroying the Democrats’ chances of holding onto control of Congress going into this year’s midterm elections.
With only 50 senators who are Democrats (plus Kamala Harris for the tie-breaking vote), he has no margin for error.
Georgia voters handed Schumer control of the Senate after Democrats won two tight runoff elections in 2021.
This fall, the Peach State is likely to determine which party controls the Senate once again.
But this time things are looking dicey for Schumer and Friends.
After a narrow win in his first race in a special election, incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock is up for re-election again this year.
And this time he’s fighting both a hostile climate for Democrats and his own alleged dirty deeds.
Warnock will likely be facing off against Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL star Herschel Walker.
Democrats have been counting on the Republican Walker’s inexperience in politics to give them an edge, but things aren’t working out how Schumer planned.
A new poll from The Hill and Emerson College shows that Warnock is in serious trouble.
Walker, who has been endorsed by Donald Trump is leading in the race with 49% of voters saying they would choose him.
Meanwhile 45% say they’d vote Warnock and 6% remain undecided.
And Joe Biden isn’t helping.
Democrats have been claiming Georgia as a solidly blue state, but Biden’s approval rating is in the tank with only 42% of voters saying they approve of him and 49% disapproving.
Schumer had hoped Republicans would destroy each other in an ugly primary, but Walker is easily leading that contest.
Meanwhile, Warnock is getting all kinds of nasty press.
Warnock’s ex-wife has accused him of being a deadbeat dad.
She told an Atlanta court that the Senator has neglected their two children and failed to pay for childcare expenses.
It’s only the latest accusation against Warnock coming from his ex-wife.
In the past she’s even accused him of running over her foot with a car during an ugly argument.
With the support of Donald Trump and Republicans rallying around him, Walker is in the perfect position to exploit Warnock’s personal failings along with the devastation Democrats have caused running the country into the ground in the past year.
