The minute Mitch McConnell successfully blocked the creation of the 1/6 Commission, the Democrats began fundraising and pounding on the GOP.
Business Insider reported:
Party leaders almost immediately began fundraising and cracking down on Republicans, who opposed a procedural Senate vote on Friday to create a commission to investigate the pro-Trump uprising in the U.S. Capitol.
Campaign officials tasked with defending the 14 Democratic senators standing for re-election in the midterm elections wasted no time hanging the failed vote around Trump’s loyal cheerleaders.
“By voting against a bipartisan, impartial investigation into the deadly January 6th uprising, Sens. Johnson, Rubio and the Senate Republicans sent a clear message to voters: They are not strong enough to oppose Trump and are right for us land, and their only goal in the Senate is to look after their own selfish political interests, ”Jazmin Vargas, spokesman for the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee, told Insider.
Mitch McConnell made an amazing gift to the Democrats. McConnell reminded each vote that a vote for one of the commission candidates who opposes and obstructs the Republican House and Senate candidates is a vote to bring the former president back to power. One vote for these Republicans is one vote for Donald Trump.
Senator McConnell never finds out.
Republicans lost the Senate majority by protecting the former president, so the minority leader will make the same mistake again before the 2022 elections. McConnell is betting that voters will be stupid and have short memories. He hopes you will forget his betrayal of the country, but the Democrats are already working to get voters to do more than remember, but they are also making Republicans pay for their betrayal next November.
