Impeachment Hearing Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman Sean Patrick Maloney downplayed his party’s struggles in deep-blue New York.
During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Maloney claimed that Republicans are wasting money in their efforts to flip his seat in the 17th District, as well as win the state’s gubernatorial race. Maloney contended that Republicans are simply “lashing out” in anger, using dark money, because they do not have plans to tackle issues.
“Speaking of New York, as you mentioned, the Republicans have gone in big to try to defeat you,” host Jonathan Karl said. “They think that your seat is winnable. We’ve also seen recent polling that shows that Governor [Kathy] Hochul is facing a very tough challenge, much tougher than expected, from Lee Zeldin, the Republican. Could we really see Democrats in trouble in New York of all places?” he asked.
“What I can tell you is that [Republicans are] acting like angry people and they’re lashing out with what they’ve got which, is big, dark MAGA millions,” Maloney said. “Like I said, they’re lighting on fire $7 million trying to beat me and on the day after the election, they’re going to lose this seat and wish they had that $7 million out in races they could win.”
“That tells me they’re not good at their jobs and I don’t want those people making decisions about my national security, or my economy or my reproductive freedom because they’re angry people, using dark mega-millions to try to win power,” he continued.
“No, what you’re seeing is a bunch of irrational angry decisions using money, not a plan to help our communities or move our country forward.” “The other side is acting like angry people and they’re lashing out with what they’ve got which, is big, dark MAGA millions…They’re lighting on fire […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
