GOP Senate Candidates Get Loud and Fight Back Before the Election
Tiffany Smiley, WA US Senate candidate: “But because you won’t hold Patty Murray accountable, I will.”
As we get closer to the November election, the GOP Senate candidates are stepping up.
Let’s start with the US Senate candidate for Nevada, Adam Laxalt, who replied to a horrible Tweet from Senator Cortez Masto. She said, “Crisis pregnancy centers consistently mislead vulnerable women about the health care services they provide. I joined my colleagues in cosponsoring the Stop Anti-Abortion Disinformation Act to crack down on false advertising about abortion services by these fake clinics.”
Laxalt said he stood with the women at these centers “who give vulnerable and poor mothers support and the ability to choose life while Cortez Masto spends “her time spreading lies and demonizing these charities.”
Despite the violent attacks targeting crisis pregnancy centers, @CortezMasto is spending her time spreading lies and demonizing these charities.
I’m proud to stand with women who give vulnerable and poor mothers support and the ability to choose life. https://t.co/MZdNY3zwWH

In Washington, US Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley also hit back at the media for carrying the water for Senator Patty Murray. In a Zoom interview, she accused the media of caving to Murray’s demands for a separate Zoom interview.
The @EverettHerald asked the @MurrayCampaign and I to do a joint, in-person debate today.
Like she always does, my opponent refused. Sadly but predictably, the Herald caved to Murray's demands for separate Zoom interviews.

Senator Patty Murray seems a little nervous about her chances in the next election. The day after Smiley accused Murray of being scared of being held accountable, Murray posted about how the Senate is one seat away from an abortion ban.
Republicans only need to flip ONE seat to take control of the Senate & try to pass a nationwide abortion ban.
The right to abortion is on the ballot in everywhere —- including here in WA.

On the East side of the country, Dr. Mehmet Oz, PA US Senate candidate, also hit back at the media for spreading the Fetterman promise he will debate Oz in October. Oz questioned the media, “when is the debate? Where is it being held? Who is the moderator?” In an interview with Fox News, he accused Fetterman of a “head fake” debate promise.
Hey, @PittsburghPG – when is the debate? Where is it being held? Who is the moderator? You can’t answer…because imaginary debates don’t count.https://t.co/kYVeaVZ8Hd

There is no John Fetterman debate offer. Debates have to be held at a specific time and specific place. They have to have a host; you have to have a TV station. We don't have any of these details.https://t.co/CGNk6S8Ex6

GOP? Stepping up?
Someone will shout “able-sit!” at Oz. He will apologize. So, no.
Yeah, im able to climb out of my basement lair and work another 60hr week instead of waiting by the mailbox for my gubment check 🙂
You had me thinking of the old TV production company whose tag at the end was “Ubu, sit!”
“Sit, Ubu, sit. Good boy” sounds like Chuckie to the Turtle
Good to see for a change, it makes me sick how they usually let the communists walk all over them.
Lake in AZ is showing how its done. You would think someone in the Repubs would pay attention
You know, it’s not dignified to fight back, it lacks decorum.
Trust me, they know. You cannot be this stupid and not see what works.
The (R) party clearly is not comfortable with these kinds of people.
They wouldn’t have to if the GOP would stop playing defense and go on offense.
One of the problems is that a large number of Republican politicians are actually Progressives. They’re just of a slower, more efficient, lower taxes bent of Progressive. But they believe all the same things. Until we get to fixing that, voting harder isn’t going to get us back our Republic.
Showing that fighting back works is the greatest thing Trump did. It’s awesome to see more and more candidates realizing this isn’t highschool debate, they’re fighting people who fight dirty, and being “more noble” doesn’t work when the majority of the media is biased.
Murray wont debate for a couple of reasons. She doesnt want to get tied to Biden in any way and for the same reason Dems wont let Tulsi near them. As for Fetterman, if he cant debate because of his stroke then how the hell is he going to represent PA in DC?
He’s not supposed to represent PA. So long as he can vote the way the party tells him to, they’re happy.
He can still Sit, Ubu, Sit when Schumer tells him to.
I’ll vote for the any candidate that’s not a D and see how that works out. If you don’t vote, the operatives may find out and vote for you. Live a long life and never vote for a D.
You’ll be voting enough D after that long life is over.
My family have standing orders to remove me from the voting rolls when I die. I refuse to vote democrat for the entire here-after.
Republicans aren’t even working on a nationwide abortion ban and if they managed to get 51 seats Biden would just veto it anyways.
STOP calling killing unborn babies “health care”. Point out that in each successful abortion,a child dies.
I just recently watched two interviews this Faulkner Gal has had, and she is as sharp as a tack.
I really like her.
It seems that some of the D candidates this time around have learned how to play the game of victimology quite effectively. That’s the game in which one player successfully portrays himself as the more genuine victim and then wins the context by appearing the more oppressed. The most adroit players of this game learn how to convey their “victim” status and that of their “oppressor” without ever uttering the words out loud. The ultimate object of the victimology game is to force the opponent into an embarrassing, groveling apology about how errant his ways are.. This has become a successful strategy with many political contestants who are able to win by appearing helpless and inept.
With his shaved head and hoodie, Fetterman looks like a bouncer at a low-rent bar.
