(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As the 2022 midterms approach, Democrats appear to be panicking that they might lose even traditional leftist strongholds, especially as they give up on enforcing the law across the country.
Perhaps most indicative of this trend is the Democratic Governors Association’s recent dumping of over a million dollars into the Oregon gubernatorial race, as the election in the Left-leaning state tightens, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Last week the association contributed $1.25 million to Democrat candidate Tina Kotek, who has now received a total of $3 million from the organization.
Kotek, who supported the 2020 riots and disdains the rule of law, is locked in a three-way race with independent candidate Betsy Johnson and Republican Christine Drazan.
In fact, just recently the Oregon gubernatorial was shifted from a Democrat lean to “toss up” status.
According to Jennifer Sitton, a spokesperson for the Johnson campaign, everyone knows that the Democrats will not hesitate to funnel huge sums of outside money into the state if needed.
“Democrats are going to back up the Brinks trucks to Oregon—a state they can’t afford to lose but can’t figure out how to win.”
In an appearance on Fox News, Drazan offered her own thoughts on the race and its status.
“We are up today, and I could not be more excited about where we stand right now in this race. We are leading in the polls, and Oregonians are ready for change,” she said, arguing that Americans are fed up with the soft-on-crime approach of the Left.
“[Oregonians] don’t recognize their own state, they certainly are not proud of their own city right now… It used to be the most safe and certainly the most beautiful state in the nation, and that’s not the experience we have now.”
All of this has taken place in the context of a highly-questionable push by the corporate media to suggest that the Left actually has an advantage in the upcoming midterms.
