Chuck Schumer’s Senate majority is hanging by a thread.
One battleground state is giving him heartburn.
And a Democrat candidate said three words that could cost Chuck Schumer everything.
Pennsylvania could decide which party controls the Senate after November’s Midterm elections.
After incumbent Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) retired, the race for Pennsylvania’s open Senate seat has become one of the most heated contests this fall.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is all-in on trying to flip the seat for Democrats.
Dr. Mehmet Oz narrowly won a crowded Pennsylvania Republican Primary after receiving the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.
Democrats nominated the state’s Bernie Sanders-loving Lieutenant Governor, John Fetterman.
Heading into Election Day the race is as close as a knife’s edge.
Crime has become one of the biggest issues in the race, as the state grapples with the national crime wave created by Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies.
Now, after being dogged by his pro-criminal past, a questionnaire from a left-wing group of cop haters is coming back to haunt the Fetterman campaign.
During Fetterman’s 2018 campaign for Lieutenant Governor, he sought out the endorsement of anti-police group Reclaim Philadelphia.
Reclaim Philadelphia was created out of Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 2016 Presidential campaign, and championed defunding the city’s police department.
The group claimed that the budget for Philadelphia’s police department comes from money “stolen from communities.”
Fetterman told Reclaim Philadelphia that he was against “tough on crime” policies and was “very excited” about the city’s George Soros-funded prosecutor, Larry Krasner.
Krasner’s soft-on-crime prosecutor’s office unleashed a crime tsunami in Philadelphia, causing violent crimes to skyrocket.
The number of murders in the city jumped from 352 in the year after Krasner took office in 2018, to 562 last year, a nearly 60% increase.
Fetterman told the group he would use the Lieutenant Governor’s office “as a bully pulpit for the larger issue of criminal justice reform,” which is code for letting criminals walk.
“There is a real opportunity to build a statewide platform that elevates and exposes the damage created by the school-to-prison pipeline, the prison industrial complex, and ‘tough on crime’ policies like ‘Stop and Frisk’ and cash bail,” Fetterman told Reclaim Philadelphia at the time.
Eliminating cash bail allows violent criminals to walk out of jail before trial leaving them free to commit more crimes.
Fetterman is already being hammered by Dr. Oz and Republicans for his soft-on-crime record.
As head of the state’s Board of Pardons, Fetterman voted to let multiple convicted murders off, and even hired a pair for his Senate campaign.
This new revelation will be another headache for the beleaguered Fetterman campaign to navigate.
