What’s the message for Democrats in the midterms?

A.B. Stoddard has a suggestion

The Democrats don't seem to know what their message should be with only 7 months before the November midterm elections.  The debate, if there is one, focuses on telling what they have done for the public in the first two years of the Biden administration (pandemic funding - those $1400 checks, infrastructure, a great Supreme Court appointment), or taking it directly to the Republicans as unfit, or worse, to govern.

A.B. Stoddard, a regular contributor on MSNBC and associate editor at RealClearPolitics, thinks there is only one choice.  Be the party that is pro-democracy and attack the Republicans for who they are and what they have done and will do in the future.

She uses a powerful quote from Rep. Jamie Raskin:

"Today there are GOP members of Congress who were involved in what January 6th Select Committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin describes as an “orchestrated, premeditated assault on our system of government.”"

Then puts a simple challenge to Democrats for 2022:

"And so Democrats campaigning to defend their majority should warn the people they represent about this fact now, rather than just complaining about it next year."
