Republican Governors Rightfully “Terrified” about their Chances in 2018

Following a shellacking in Virginia, Republican Governors are “reeling” as they start to come to terms with reality: Trump is a serious drag on their own campaigns. Republicans are now facing mid-term elections with a President who is astonishingly unpopular and a party that is in danger of losing a Senate seat in the reddest of red states — in addition to Democratic enthusiasm we haven’t seen in years. Just take a look at some of these headlines:

American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement:

“Republican governors and gubernatorial candidates have no one to blame but themselves for the problems they face in 2018. Americans across the country are fed up with being used by Republicans that have indulged President Trump, adopted his playbook of bigotry, and continued to push policies that would benefit the wealthy at the expense of everyone else–and they will stand up in opposition next November.”
