DC Democrats Wave White Flag In Louisiana

The last campaign of 2016 ends tomorrow and DC Democrats are already flying the white flag of surrender. While liberal activists are looking for even a glimmer of hope after Hillary Clinton’s loss, Chuck Schumer and the DSCC have already given up on Louisiana Democrat Foster Campbell.

In November, Chuck Schumer promised Campbell that he’d help, yet hasn’t spoken with him in a month:

“Sen. Chuck Schumer, the leading Democrat in the Senate, called Campbell after November 8 and said he would donate to his campaign. But Schumer had not reached out to the candidate since, Campbell said.”

Even before Election Day, the executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party Stephen Handwerk is already blaming the DSCC for ignoring his candidate:

“Handwerk said that the DNC had done everything Louisiana Democrats had requested to help Campbell, including helping with digital modeling and forecasting. What was missing was aid from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which works to elect Democrats to the Senate, was lacking. ‘I don’t know what they’re doing,’ Handwerk said of the DSCC. ‘You would think they would at least want to try to compete.'”

It’s going to be a long two years for Senate Democrats.
