Hillary’s People Are Targeting Dean Heller and Cory Gardner To Flip On Kavanaugh

Published

on

Hillary Clinton loyalists are looking to peel off moderate Republican senators Dean Heller and Cory Gardner in their effort to stop President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh.

The makeshift liberal group We Demand Justice is running anti-Kavanaugh ads in Alaska and Maine to pressure Republican senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to back off their support for the nominee due to professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against him stemming from high school.

Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon highlighted a key piece of the Democrat strategy. We Demand Justice is also running ads in Nevada and Colorado aimed at Republican senators Dean Heller and Cory Gardner, the latter of whom supported Marco Rubio in the GOP presidential primary. Gardner supports Ford being heard and pushed to delay the confirmation vote.

Democrats know they can pick off establishment Republicans, which Republicans could never pull off in reverse because Democrats march in lockstep. Dean Heller is up for re-election in 2018 and the Nevada Republican base is unlikely to rally around him if he blocks Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Gardner, on the other hand, is not up for re-election until 2020 and he has consistently shown his willingness to rebuke President Trump — possibly to set up his own presidential campaign, which he no doubt dreams about every night like all politicians do.

Close observers are worried that Democrats are using their anti-Kavanaugh momentum to force President Trump to withdraw his executive order and re-classify the documents related to Operation Crossfire Hurricane, the “Russia”-themed set-up operation carried out by Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr and others. That would put the Trump White House back on the weak end of Robert Mueller Era politics in Washington.
