Stoddard: Biden Surge is Mitch McConnell’s Worst Nightmare

Two weeks ago, there were many who thought that Bernie Sanders had the Democratic nomination locked up. After Super Tuesday, the pendulum has swung to the point where it would now be an upset if Joe Biden wasn’t the nominee.

During a segment on CNN Friday, Paul Begala, AB Stoddard and Jim Sciutto discussed how Biden’s surge could affect other Democrats on the ballot. The Conservative Stoddard claimed that these candidates will get a huge boost from Biden’s candidacy and that fact is Mitch McConnell’s worst nightmare.

Stoddard said that Biden’s more moderate policies could inspire better candidates to run for office. One example she cited was popular former Montana Governor Steve Bullock who announced he will be running for a Montana senate seat.

Steve Bullock would not have gotten in if Sanders was going to be the nominee which we thought on Saturday morning,” Stoddard suggested. “This is Mitch McConnell’s worst nightmare.”

The Conservative pundit continued:

“Donald Trump may not appreciate the threat to the Senate Republican majority, but [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell certainly does. [Sen.] Thom Tillis in North Carolina, he’s not only below his Democratic rival, it is now officially a tossup race. [Sen.] Martha McSally in Arizona, below her Democratic rival. They’re going to have to spend tons of money on John Cornyn in Texas and [Iowa Senator] Joni Ernst.”
