The hate-led impeachment led by the Democrats has already started to blow up in their face.
In less than 24 hours, two Democrats have abandoned their party as a result of the ridiculous impeachment hearings based on zero actual facts.
The first to announce his departure was House Representative Jeff Van Drew.
Van Drew said,
“My job isn’t really to like or dislike him. My job is to exact as much goodwill and help for my district and for this nation and for this world that I possibly can while he’s president.
To some folks, that’s reminiscent of what was done to kings and queens many years ago. Everything our country doesn’t stand for.
It was supposed to be bipartisan, it was supposed to be incontrovertible. It was supposed to be something that was always on the rarest of circumstances. Well, it’s not bipartisan.”
The other Democrat to flip was State Senator John Yudichak. He will be switching his registration to become an Independent though he will caucus with the Republican majority.
Yudichak, 49, has occasionally split with Democratic leadership on floor votes. He was the party’s longtime chair of the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, and coming from a historic coal region often put him at odds with environmental advocacy groups and Democratic colleagues who favor renewable energies.
Yudichak’s departure comes after Democrats picked up six seats in the past year, substantially changing the profile of the caucus to become more liberal and shifting its powerbase to southeastern Pennsylvania.
It also comes as Democrats had eyed the potential in 2020 of capturing the Senate majority for the first time in nearly 30 years.
In 2016, Yudichak’s home county, which had long supported Democrats, flipped unexpectedly to support Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
While his Senate district has a heavy Democratic registration advantage, it bore the hallmarks of Trump country: it is whiter, with lower median incomes and lower rates of college-degree attainment, than the rest of Pennsylvania. (AA)
