Mitch McConnell Senate Republicans.
Mitch McConnell is one man but the power he wields in the Senate is not something he just has. When he speaks as Majority Leader, he is speaking for the majority. What he does are the actions of all 53 Republican Senators collectively.
They can remove him at any time. If they didn’t like what he’s doing, he’d be gone. As long as he remains, he is their voice. He is all of them.
If he were gone, nothing would change. They’d find someone equally if not more awful to put in his place. Every bit of legislation he blocks would still never make it through the Senate because they’re all equally as bad as him, they just don’t have to show it as much.
Please, please stop doing what they want you to do. Stop pointing at McConnell as if he’s this one guy fucking everything up. When you focus on him, the other 52 get to keep doing their shit free of scrutiny. Exactly as planned. Mitch McConnell is the Senate Republican tank, the other 52 are the damage dealers, don’t let him pull your focus.
We need the Senate. Democrats absolutely have to hammer those races just as much as the Presidential. Without the Senate, it won’t matter much who wins.
Edit: Still had pre-2018 numbers in my head. Republicans hold 53 seats not 51. All it would take is 4 Republicans to side with the Dems and kick McConnell out. Where are they? Where are those “centrist” Republicans? This is a gold opportunity to show they stand apart from the rest.
