Dem Rep: Democrats Will Lose Elections if We Run on Impeachment

Rep. Gerry Connolly should let Tom Steyer and Maxine Waters know that they're jeopardizing Democratic chances at taking Congress.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA), in an appearance on CNN on Wednesday, told the network’s Poppy Harlow that Democrats could not win Congress by running on “the ‘I’ word.”

“I believe that voting for a Democrat should not be seen as tantamount to a vote for impeachment,” he said. “If it is, we’re going to lose elections we otherwise might win.”

Connolly added that Trump voters were willing to vote Democratic, but they’d run away if the party just runs on impeachment.

Democrats need to “separate [themselves] from the ‘I’ word,” he said.

Connolly might want to let Tom Steyer and Maxine Waters know that their impeachment campaigns could keep Congress in GOP hands.
