The political career of Adam Schiff could be ruined.
He has been one of the biggest liars in Congress, but that could be over now.
Adam Schiff made one stupid gaffe that could completely sink him.
Rep. Adam Schiff, who has made a name for himself as one of the most egregious liars out of all of the Democrats in Congress, is taking a big political risk.
He is giving up his seat in Congress to run for U.S. Senate. This means that he will either be elected to the U.S. Senate, or he will lose the race and be unemployed.
California, Schiff’s home state, does their elections a bit differently than most states do. They have what’s called a “jungle primary” and then a general election between the top two candidates regardless of party.
This means there may be two Democrats running against each other in the general election if both of the top two vote-getters in the primary are Democrats.
And when that happens, Republican voters in the district get just as much of a say as Democrats do about which Democrat wins the general election.
According to Politico, “California Republicans are such a distinct minority group in the blue state – they make up about a third of the electorate – that, this go around, things could get weird. The race to replace Feinstein could end up as a Democrat-on-Democrat contest, and Republicans could wind up swinging the whole election.”
If Adam Schiff were smart, he would want to stay on the good side of Republican voters. After all, they may ultimately decide his political fate.
But instead, he seems intent on alienating them as much as possible, and pushing them to vote for his Democrat opponent, Rep. Katie Porter.
The Santa Barbara Independent had a report about some comments Schiff made that will leave conservative voters very angry.
He slammed Tucker Carlson, saying, “I think the litigation was important, and good riddance to Tucker Carlson, who did nothing but peddle falsehoods and hate. And I think we need to continue to hold Fox’s feet to the fire because their promotion of falsehood continues.”
He also called for expanding the Supreme Court to add four radical leftist justices to ensure that the Constitution gets destroyed.
“Expanding the court, I think, is important to restoring balance and restoring our rights, like the right to reproductive freedom.”
Schiff is making a huge mistake with these comments. He may think his audience is exclusively far-left voters, but the way California’s election system works, that is not true at all.
He needs Republican voters to at least view him as the lesser of two evils. And if he keeps ripping on them and promoting radical leftist causes, the effect will be to push them to vote for his Democrat opponent, Rep. Katie Porter.
Of course, Porter is also a radical leftist, but she has at least had the good sense to keep her mouth shut and not insult her potential voters.
Adam Schiff may have tanked his entire political career with a few stupid comments.
