“The number one lesson from Georgia Six. Democrats need a…economic agenda,” Schumer said during an interview.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) admitted that Democrats lack an economic message at the moment, and that is the reason the party has lost all four special elections that were held in 2017, during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Schumer about the Democrats’ loss in the Georgia special election, which has lead to a lot of Democrats second-guessing the party’s platform.
“Okay, here’s the number one lesson from Georgia Six. Democrats need a strong, bold, sharp-edged and common-sense economic agenda,” Schumer told Stephanopoulos. “Policy, platform, message. That appeal to the middle class. That resonates with the middle class.”
Schumer then told Stephanopoulos that Democrats didn’t have an economic agenda in 2016, and that he will be releasing a Democratic message this summer. This, Schumer said, is what Senate Democrats will be campaigning on in 2018.
