Chuck Schumer was fuming after a leading Democrat made this colossal blunder

Chuck Schumer is up to his ears in problems.

One Democrat gave him a nasty surprise. 

And Chuck Schumer was fuming after a leading Democrat made this colossal blunder.

The battle for control of the Senate is heating up as campaign season kicks into high-gear for the Midterm elections.

With the Senate tied with exactly 50 Senators for each party, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has no margin for error.

Joe Biden’s disastrous Presidency is giving Republicans hope of picking up seats in some surprising states.

Republicans are looking to put Colorado’s Senate seat in play against vulnerable Democrat incumbent, Senator Michael Bennet.

After cruising to victory by 13.5 points in Colorado during the last Presidential election, President Joe Biden’s popularity collapsed in the state.

According to recent polling out of Colorado, President Biden’s approval rating in the state is at a paltry 30% while 56% of voters disapprove of the job he’s doing.

While politicians are known for their election year pandering, Senator Michael Bennett stepped in it with his latest campaign commercial. 

Despite voting with Joe Biden 98% of the time, Senator Bennet has been running away from him during campaign season.

In the ad, Bennet tried to portray himself as a folksy outdoorsman decked out in outdoor gear, casting a fly-fishing line into a river.

But it turned out this attempt to shake his Washington, D.C. insider perception was nothing more than a desperate campaign stunt.

“Bennet received a one-day fishing license to film the commercial, according to documents provided by his campaign,” Axios reported.

Senator Bennet looked awkwardly out of place, casting his fly exactly like you’d expect from a guy with a one-day fishing license.

The cost of a one-day fishing license in Colorado is $14.46 compared to $36.71 for a year.

This blunder never would have happened if Bennet, who has an estimated net worth of $31 million, shelled out for the year license.

The ad exposes Senator Bennet for the phony he is with a lame attempt to rebrand himself for an election year.

“The worst sin any candidate can do is come across as insincere and phony and I think Bennet comes close to doing that,” Colorado Republican strategist Dick Wadhams said. “He’s going to have to answer for that on the campaign.”

This wasn’t the only deception in the ad by Bennet either.

The ad’s narrator, fly-fishing outfitter Greg Felt, claimed he wasn’t a Democrat while praising Senator Bennet for not taking the “bait” from special interests.

As it turns out, Felt is a County Commissioner who voted as a Democrat in several elections and was appointed to the water conservation board by the state’s Democrat Governor.

Senator Michael Bennet knows he’s in for a tough race, so he’s trying to portray himself as a moderate instead of a down-the-line vote for Biden’s radical left-wing agenda.

Colorado’s Senate race is shaping up to be an unexpected headache for Chuck Schumer in the battle for Senate control.
