Yesterday, American Bridge 21st Century President Jessica Floyd joined Signal Boost on SiriusXM to discuss Democratic strategy going into the midterm elections and the need to sell the strong Democratic economic agenda.
Throughout the interview, Floyd points out that Democrats are focused on the economy and getting the country back on track by investing in American families and infrastructure. Meanwhile, Republicans are committed to pushing an unpopular far-right agenda and they are also in complete disarray with messy GOP primaries happening in states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Nevada, and all over the country.
“It’s our responsibility collectively as Democrats to make a very clear, positive case for where Democrats are focused on and where Republicans are focused on because they’ve been lying for 40 years about what they care about. It feels like that should be very like a really obvious sell to voters this year.”
