DSCC Statement on Senate Republicans’ Recruitment Failures & Doug Ducey

In response to Doug Ducey’s decision to not run for Senate – despite intense lobbying from NRSC Chair Rick Scott and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Patrick Burgwinkle released the following statement:

“Once again, Senate Republicans’ recruitment efforts have failed, and their top potential candidates are refusing to run against strong Democratic Senators like Mark Kelly. While Senate Democrats are fighting to lower costs for American families, potential Republican candidates know they cannot defend their party’s disastrous agenda of raising taxes, ending Medicare and Social Security, and pushing the interests of big corporations and the wealthiest few at the expense of working families.”

In November, national Republicans failed to recruit Governor Sununu in New Hampshire. In February, Republicans failed to recruit Governor Hogan in Maryland.
