(TNS) Red Wave: A former Democratic aide says that the approaching migrant caravan couldn’t have come at a worse time for his party because it is a crisis that will play into the hands of Republicans and weaken Dem chances of retaking Congress.
Democrats “should be very concerned about” their midterm election chances now said former Democratic Senate aide Chris Hahn during an interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
“I think that this current wave of immigration plays perfectly into the Republicans’ hands coming at the closing days of the midterms. In fact, they should be taken very seriously and could alter it,” said Hahn, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Lifezette reported.
“It weakens our chance of taking the Senate because it mobilizes and energizes the Trump base. This is their number-one issue,” he added. “This couldn’t have been scripted better for Republicans … if they’d planned it or something. This is something that Democrats should be very concerned about.”
It’s not clear who is ‘financing’ the caravan, which has grown to between, 7,000 and 10,000 people, but it’s obvious that someone is; how else can that many people trek some 2,000 miles to the U.S. border at about 20 miles per day without food, water, and hygiene along the way?
But if the Left is behind this caravan as a way to try and weaken Republicans right before the midterms — the caravan is expected to arrive shortly before the elections and create a ‘crisis’ — they miscalculated badly.
Hahn is right; the caravan will inspire more GOP voters to go to the polls.
