2018 Midterms

In States Where It Mattered Most, Obama Campaign Stops Resulted In Losses

Published

Former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail before the 2018 midterms hoping to push radically progressive candidates across the finish line, but he came up short in races that mattered most.

In September, Obama campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray of Ohio.

“Rich is someone who has always been committed to solving problems,” Obama said according to Politico, adding that Cordray “represents the kind of leadership we need.”

That was the rally where Obama urged Ohioans to remember where the economic boom “started,” referring to his own presidency. But the fine people of Ohio, always a battleground state, weren’t buying it. They elected Republican Mike DeWine to be their next governor.

More recently, Obama went to bat for radically left socialists Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum who ran for governorships in Georgia and Florida, respectively.

“You know who will fight for you? Stacey Abrams!” said Obama. He added that Tuesday’s midterms were “one of the most important elections of our lives.”

Abrams is a gun-grabber who once burned the Georgia state flag in protest. Her campaign guests included the Black Panther Party and rabid anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, who infamously called for jihad against President Donald J. Trump. Despite Obama’s pleas Georgia voters decided that Abrams wasn’t quite their speed, and instead elected conservative Brian Kemp.

After that failure, Obama headed down to Florida to campaign for Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). Gillum was embroiled in an FBI investigation for accepting gifts in exchange for political favors as the Mayor of Tallahassee. His campaign also had a violence problem, with several staffers physically assaulting non-supporters in multiple instances.

“Why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time,” Obama said at the rally. “When I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good.”

That sales pitch was not strong enough. Gillum lost, and Nelson was unseated by Florida’s Republican governor, Rick Scott.

Obama did have some paltry campaign wins in deep blue states like Illinois and California, which were certain to vote Democrat whether he showed up on the campaign trail or not.

It turns out that radical socialist progressivism is what the American people want, regardless of how much it is shoved down their collective throat by do-nothing former president Obama.
