Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are under the gun.
But the left putting pressure on Schumer is leading to strange turns of events.
Chuck Schumer just gave one unthinkable answer that is about to change everything.
The Democrat Party forced Chuck Schumer to hold a doomed-to-fail vote on nuking the legislative filibuster.
Republicans blocked a Democrat bill to seize control of federal elections which raised concerns of elevated levels of fraud.
That’s because the federal election takeover power grab would mandate no-excuse mail-I voting and ballot harvesting in every state in America while also neutering voter ID laws.
Democrats can’t eliminate the legislative filibuster because Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin refuse to budge on their opposition to undermining American democracy and gutting the filibuster.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders ratcheted up the pressure on Senators Sinema and Manchin by announcing his support for left-wing primary challengers to run against Sinema and Manchin when they seek re-election in 2024.
“Well, yeah,” Sanders declared when asked if he would back primary challengers to the two swing-seat Democrat senators.
Reporters asked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer if Schumer supported efforts to primary Sinema and Manchin.
“If this is a critical moment for democracy and a moral moment, would you support efforts to primary Sens. Manchin and Sinema?” a reporter asked.
Schumer’s response stunned the press.
The Democrat Senate majority leader did not disavow efforts by unelectable left-wing challengers to primary two of Schumer’s most vulnerable incumbents.
“I’m not getting into the politics. This is a substantive serious issue,” Schumer responded.
The New York Times’ left-wing political reporter Jonathan Martin immediately realized the significance of Schumer’s comments.
“Anything but an ‘of course not, I support our incumbents’ is news here,” Martin tweeted.
For his part, Joe Manchin – who is running for re-election in a state Donald Trump won by 39 points – dared Bernie Sanders to run a primary challenger against him.
“I’ve been primaried my entire life. That would not be anything new for me,” Manchin told reporters. “It’s rough and tumble. We’re used to that. Bring it on.”
Liberals also came after Senator Sinema – who is running for re-election in the swing state of Arizona in the presidential election cycle of 2024.
Radical pro-abortion groups NARAL and EMILY’s List stated they would not support Sinema if Sinema faced a primary challenge even though Sinema owns a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record.
“If Sen. Sinema can not support a path forward for the passage of this legislation, we believe she undermines the foundations of our democracy, her own path to victory and also the mission of EMILY’s List, and we will be unable to endorse her moving forward,” a statement from EMILY’s List read.
EMILY’s List – which pumped $1.7 million into Sinema’s 2018 election campaign – declared that Sinema “will find herself standing alone in the next election.”
NARAL was no different.
“Going forward, we won’t endorse any U.S. senator who doesn’t support changing the Senate rules to pass voting rights legislation,” NARAL declared.
The Senate majority leader’s only job is to protect the majority.
But now Chuck Schumer is so afraid of facing a primary challenge of his own from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that Schumer granted permission for radical socialists – who cannot win general elections – to primary sitting Democrat senators.
