2022 Dem Campaign Narrative Beginning to Take Shape
Pragmatism, progress vs extremism — a potentially powerful 2022 election narrative has begun to emerge for Democrats.
As I review in a new thread this morning, a possible 2022 Democratic campaign narrative is beginning to take shape.
It runs something like this:
“For over a decade now irresponsible Republicans have blocked progress on major challenges facing the nation.
With their first governing majority in since 2010, Democrats are now offering pragmatic solutions to the challenges we face — defeating COVID, building an economy for all, tackling climate change, improving health care, modernizing our immigration system, defending our democracy…..
It is who we are, what we are fighting for. A better America.
Republicans, on the other hand, have become radicalized, and are now endangering our public health, our economy, a women’s right to choose, common sense climate solutions and our democracy. Returning them to power next year would risk so much of the progress being made, and put our democracy itself in peril. “
That’s it. That’s the early 2022 narrative.
Pragmatism, progress vs extremism.
