Vulnerable house Dems sound alarm about possible Sanders nomination: “It is bad”

nearvideo-Bernie Sanders: “We are the strongest of the campaign to defeat Trump’

Raw video: 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders is responding to reports that some Democrats are nervous about a democratic Socialist at the top of the party ticket.

The strength of the sen Bernie Sanders ” campaign caused significant panic among Democrats in the battleground states and swing districts, the worries of losing a democratic socialist at the top of the ticket.

Moderate lawmakers, the alarm sounded Thursday, the bells on the Capitol, according to Sanders, New Hampshire, and finished strong in Iowa, heading into the March competitions with the money and momentum to win.

“It’s bad,” said a freshman Democrat from a swing district. “We have conversations about dealing with this.”

“When [Sanders] is the candidate we lose,” another Democrat told Fox News.


Two other vulnerable Democrats, said a Sanders nomination would almost certainly the member States, the President of Trump and hurt their down-ballot races for the house and the Senate.

Their concern is exacerbated in the desolate surface, for former Vice President Joe Biden, who had put his candidacy to beat trump in swing states and appeal to more centrist voters.

Now, Democrats are grappling with the possibility that the fragmentation of the electorate and bustle could Sanders for the nomination.

Several Democrats interviewed by Fox News asked to remain anonymous to speak freely about their concerns, and admitted that you knew, whether you should actively try to Sanders, block, or other way to spin his candidacy into a viable one.

“We are only just beginning,” said the Democrat.


But Sanders, who has a loyal group of young Fans on Thursday, he can motivate you to beat the trump card, because he can, unconventional voters head to the polls.

“We are the strongest of the campaign to defeat the trump card, because the way you defeat trump, we have said, the biggest turnout in the history of this country,” Sanders on Thursday at the Capitol. “And I think if you look at Iowa, you will find that we saw an increase of 33 percent in the vote for younger people, voting at a higher rate than ever before. In New Hampshire, they saw us very well in the working-class communities. And if we are going to be the defeat to Trump as we are.”

Sanders made the case that he can build a winning coalition.

“We have to go to the working class back into the Democratic party. We are going to need to young people to be involved much more in the political process. And it’s never been the case before, we are gonna have to expand minority of the vote,” said Sanders. “And I think we have to make a campaign.”

Sanders is now at the top of the national polls, and his supporters were very confident. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Vermont called independent campaign so far as “outstanding.”

With the film of Biden, there is uncertainty about who is probably the strongest alternative for moderate voters.

Political newcomer Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., won the most delegates from Iowa and finished just behind Sanders in New Hampshire, while Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota to beat expectations in New Hampshire for third place.

Meanwhile, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has pumped millions into building a campaign that can compete on the high-stakes Super Tuesday, 3. March, and the donors believe that he is well positioned to take the reins, to mount when Biden made a comeback in the upcoming contests in Nevada and South Carolina.


Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Mich., has not approved, which could in the race and said, one of the leading candidates to win in the swing state of Michigan. Asked whether Biden had the best chance, Kildee said, “This is more of a question now, since you have to demonstrate strength somewhere. In the summary, which he did, because he feels like one of us in a variety of ways, but, you know, New Hampshire was the power on.”

Rep., Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich., Sen. Kamala Harris for President, but she said that she was going to Super Tuesday waiting to make a further confirmation. So far, though, she was impressed with how well the “strong” campaign, which Bloomberg has in their home state.

In the meantime, Biden, the men behind the fight went on the Offensive a Sanders nomination would be disastrous for the Democrats on the same ticket for Congress, Senate and other local races.

“Elected officials across the country understand it, ballot carnage of the Democratic party is down, when we are choosing the wrong person,” Rep. Cedric Richmond, the Biden campaign co-Chairman, said, according to Politico. “If Bernie Sanders were on the ticket, we would lose ourselves in danger of the house, we would not win back the Senate.”

Democrats back the house in the 2018 election by a change in the GOP-controlled districts. It is now endangered Democrats feared that their voters could not get behind the more radical politics of a socialist, such as “Medicare for all”, and was also home.

To fight you are planning to Sanders’ nomination, by trying to hyper-focus on local issues. But a lawmaker acknowledged that it would be hard to compete with the Sanders story, and the echo of the indictment.


The alarm bells sounded among some Democrats, Democratic sources reminded that only a tiny percentage of the delegates have been awarded. “It is so early in the morning,” said a source. “We just have to win.”

Several Democrats who could talk to face competitions in this autumn, declining to on the record about what could mean a Sanders nomination and the impact of the impeachment, for your candidacy. Fox News is told, is not a formal warning, to see vulnerable Democrats, what do you say to the press, or to avoid the press altogether. But some Democrats came from Fox News and other outlets were to be reserved or uncomfortable with the topic.

Two newcomers, Democrats, the seats of red turned to blue in the year 2018, and Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, and Lucy McBath, D-Ga., would not engage at all, to provide a clutch of reporters just off the House floor, the wanted, questions.

Rep. Raul Grijalva, progressive and a leader in the house, however, tried to calm the storm.


“I think it is premature to begin for anyone to pull out their hair,” said Grijalva, D-Ariz., who back Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president. “I think it will be a tight race. If it is Bernie, I don’t think it’s necessarily a deficit, the re-conquest of the White house.”

Warren says she is a capitalist, while Sanders proudly embraced socialism for decades. Trump and the GOP tried to paint the election as a vote against the socialists, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Omar and their “team.”

But Grijalva said, can work, the labels in both directions.

“How can the Republicans continue to hold on to the re-election campaign trump card, if many of us feel that the policies he has initiated have divided this country, and many people think that him and Stephen Miller are racist,” Grijalva said of the senior White House aide. “I have my labels.”
