More GOP senator candidates skipping final debates

Posted by / October 31, 2020

It started when the Georgia Senator up for reelection this term will skip the final debate after his rival’s recent attack during a forum went viral. Now, news has broken that a host of other GOP senators in other states are skipping their debates: Louisiana, Mississippi, and Maine candidates are also bailing.

“Perhaps Sen. Perdue would have been able to respond properly to the Covid-19 pandemic if you hadn’t been fending off multiple federal investigations for insider trading,” Georgia Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff said. “It’s not just that you’re a crook, senator. It’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent.” Boom, as they say, goes the dynamite.

According to a new Monmouth University poll, Joe Biden has a five-point lead over Donald Trump in Georgia, a state no Democrat has won since 1992. Although not statistically significant, this lead does signal that Biden poses a threat to Trump.

According to another recent poll, two-thirds of Americans think that we are in a worse position now than we were in 2015. That explains why Biden is polling so well in traditionally Republican states, like Florida where he is two points ahead of Trump.

The Topeka Capital-Journal, a popular paper in the Kansas state capital, backed Donald Trump in 2016 but is supporting Biden this year.

In 2016, USA Today urged its readers not to vote for Donald Trump, but it did not overtly endorse Hillary Clinton. This election year, they have broken with the tradition of non-partisanship in place since the paper’s founding in 1982 and endorsed Joe Biden.

So many surprising people and groups are supporting Biden it’s almost hard to keep track. Ex-Republican National Convention chair Michael Steele, who steered the GOP during Biden’s tenure in the Obama White House, has endorsed Joe Biden.

Pennsylvania seniors are withdrawing their support for Trump over his terrible COVID response and endorsing Joe Biden. These seniors are not the only traditionally-Republican Pennsylvanians abandoning Trump. The former Republican governor of Pennsylvania is supporting Joe Biden for President, breaking with his party. Tom Ridge said he has never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate before, but that his long history of rejecting Donald Trump compels him to make this decision. He compared Trump to George W. Bush, who stood on the rubble of Ground Zero with a megaphone, uniting the country. Could Trump do such a thing, Ridge asks? Even if he could, he hasn’t––he has not gone to the CDC to rally the nation against COVID. And more than 125 mayors in Pennsylvania, a key swing state this election, have thrown their support behind Joe Biden.
