Nearly every 2022 GOP Senate candidate opposes the bipartisan infrastructure deal
U.S. House Democrats today voted to advance consideration of historic investments in infrastructure, jobs, families, and communities across the country. The vote comes after Democrats in the Senate earlier this month passed President Biden’s broadly-popular bipartisan infrastructure deal, which will invest billions into fixing broken roads, bridges, and water infrastructure, expand broadband access, and create millions of jobs.
But despite the bill’s clear benefits for states, cities, towns and rural communities across the country, 2022 Republican U.S. Senate candidates are broadly lining up against the deal — just like 2022 incumbents Ron Johnson and Marco Rubio, who voted against the measure in the Senate:
- Arizona: GOP candidates have called the bill “complete crap” and made clear they would’ve “opposed this bill.”
- Georgia: The “three leading Republican contenders for U.S. Senate” opposed the bipartisan bill.
- North Carolina: The GOP candidates are “against the legislation” and “proud” of the Senators who voted no.
- Ohio: “None of the top Ohio GOP candidates […] support the deal.”
- Pennsylvania: Top Republican candidates attacked the bill as “disgraceful” calling it a “total scam” and “wasteful political pork.”
- Nevada: Adam Laxalt opposes the bipartisan infrastructure deal, a position that Nevada workers say makes him a “threat to Nevada jobs.”
