Wyden Reserved On Democrats Senate Prospects
One of Oregon’s U.S. Senators says he’s not speculating now on whether the Democrats will take the Senate in November.
A number of political forecasts have suggested dissatisfaction with the GOP and President Donald Trump could cost Republicans any number of states, enough to tilt them blue this fall.
Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden recently said that a lot can still happen between now and Election Day.
“The best politics is doing your job. I’ve outlined specific ideas, whether it’s this issue of supercharged unemployment benefits, my 21st century conservation corps, expanding vote-by-mail, improving mental health," Wyden told KLCC.
"Those are the kinds of issues I think when people vote in the fall they say, ‘Those are the positions we like,’ and it’s reflected in their votes.”
President Trump has asserted that his policies have made America strong on issues like the economy and immigration control. But polls show declining support after his handling of Black Lives Matter and the coronavirus.
