This morning, the Wall Street Journal ran an op-ed written by SLF President Steven Law outlining the stakes of the fight for Senate control in 2020. Excerpts from the piece can be found below.
“The 2016 presidential election was a traumatic loss for progressives—worse than losing the House in 2010 after Democrats muscled through ObamaCare. What progressives learned from these defeats is that changing policy is not enough; they must change the rules of the game to cement their control and prevent the voters from reversing their agenda.”
“To secure these audacious goals, the party is fixated on making structural changes that would prevent Republicans from ever regaining power in Congress, neuter the Supreme Court, and punish those who speak out against the new order.”
“Thus the Republican-led U.S. Senate is America’s firewall against one-party rule. That’s why the fight for Senate control in 2020 will be as consequential as the White House campaign.”
