A top Democrat said three words about 2024 that had Chuck Schumer hitting the panic button

The 2024 election is shaping up to be a knock-down drag-out fight.

Democrats are facing one major problem on the horizon.

And a top Democrat said three words about 2024 that had Chuck Schumer hitting the panic button.

The planning for the 2024 election is already starting to take shape.

Democrats appeared to be riding high after their surprising success in the Midterm elections, which saw the Party grow their slim Senate majority by one seat.

Already, pessimism is growing about Democrats’ chances to hold the Senate after the 2024 elections.

Democrats face a daunting Senate map in 2024 with vulnerable incumbents up for re-election in Montana, Ohio, and West Virginia, states former President Donald Trump won handily in 2020.

In a Presidential year in which Trump or any other Republican Presidential candidate is cruising to victory in those states, Democrats face a tall order to hang on in those Senate races.

Another five Democrat incumbents are up for re-election in battleground states that President Joe Biden narrowly won in the 2020 election.

The Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is the main organization tasked with electing, and re-electing, Democrat Senators in the 2024 election.

The chair of the DSCC for the next election cycle would normally be nominated by the start of this session of Congress.

But so far, no Democrat Senator has stepped up to take the job ahead of a potentially difficult election cycle.

Jose Aristimuño, a Democrat strategist and host of Americano Media, told Fox News that the Senate map “will be tough” for Democrats, and that’s giving Senators cold feet.

“I wouldn’t call it a mystery per se as to why the pick is taking so long, but it’s more on the reality that Leader Schumer understands that the landscape for Democrats in 2024 will be tough,” Aristimuño said. 

Even Democrats are conceding that the 2024 Senate map is going to be brutal for the Party.

“We are talking about 23 Senate seats that Democrats need to defend,” Aristimuño continued. “Three are in purely red states while five are swing states. So it’s no wonder that no senator is jumping at the opportunity, especially during a presidential election year.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is expected to handpick the next DSCC chair, but his timetable is up in the air.

Jessica Anderson, executive director for Heritage Action, told Fox News that the DSCC delay is due to Senate Democrat dismal odds in 2024.

“Conservatives are well positioned for a successful 2024 Senate sweep, so it comes as no surprise that the Democratic establishment is still unable to find someone to lead their efforts to cling to power,” Anderson said. “The Democratic Party is more radical today than ever before with moderates no longer welcome and dangerous leftist policies being advocated.”

The 2024 election could be the end of the line for Chuck Schumer’s control over the Senate.
