American Bridge 21st Century President Jessica Floyd released the following statement on Roy Blunt’s retirement announcement:
“How many Republican Senators have to retire before Mitch McConnell acknowledges he has a problem? Only days after every Republican Senator voted against $1400 desperately needed relief checks for most Americans, we learn that Washington Republicans will now have to defend their 4th open Senate seat. The news that Roy Blunt will soon join the rest of his family as a lobbyist is yet another sign that Republicans are running scared from a resurging Democratic Party with the wind at our backs.
“While Republicans are focused on Dr. Seuss and the MyPillowGuy, Democrats just passed a historic rescue package that will immediately put more money in Americans’ pockets and help end the pandemic. American Bridge 21st Century will work tirelessly over the next two years to expand our majorities in Congress. And we’re going to make damn sure voters know which party is working to end the pandemic, and which one voted against giving Americans economic relief.”
