McConnell Says GOP Could Win in This Dem Stronghold

As Republicans seek to take back a U.S. Senate majority, they are setting their sights on potential pickups across the country — those seats now include a blue state.

The Daily Wire reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made an unexpected visit to a fundraiser for GOP candidate Joe O’Dea in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.

“I just want to assure everybody, we’re going to be all-in in Colorado,” McConnell told the assembled crowd, according to an attendee, Axios reported. McConnell reportedly said O’Dea is “the perfect candidate for the nature of your state,” noting, ”We think we can win this race.”

“I wanted to dispel any notion that you may have that we’re not going to play in Colorado,” he said.

Biden won Colorado by more than 13 points in 2020, but as the outlet pointed out, Sen. Cory Gardner, the last Republican to win a Senate seat there, was a surprise win in 2014 during a red wave. Axios reported that Republicans see that victory as a model for O’Dea, noting that other states like Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania could be uphill battles for the GOP, and Colorado might be the place to boost the party’s chances of securing a majority in the Senate.

Makes me wonder who is McConnell pulling for since he is backstabbing this country with his moves, so far every Republican that McConnell has pushed has not been good for the country. I don’t want McConnell getting involved with elections since he gave the the country away to the democrats
