DSCC Statement on Tonight’s Final Presidential Debate


DSCC Communications Director Sadie Weiner released the following statement on tonight’s final presidential debate:


“From its start, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has centered on sexism, racism, xenophobia, hatred, and now dangerous allegations about the integrity of our elections, and that’s exactly what we heard in his closing arguments tonight. He’s not the only one at fault for the turn our political discourse has taken: Republican Senators and Senate candidates who built the Party of Trump bear responsibility. Some have since tried to distance themselves from the toxic nominee while others dug in but they all share the same concern of keeping their jobs. This disappointing lack of leadership and the willingness to put their own self-interest ahead of our country is why voters across the country will elect a new majority this November.”


**This week, the DSCC released a poll of battleground states that shows that Republican Senators and Senate candidates are in a lose-lose situation with Trump. Regardless of whether Republicans choose to stick with Trump or distance themselves from him, voters view their positions as purely political calculations designed to save their campaigns.
