"SENATE DEMOCRATS’ CAMPAIGN arm has endorsed three former Republicans, adding to a list of races in which the party has continued a futile strategy of backing moderates over candidates with more progressive platforms.
The latest endorsement came on Monday, when the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee put its weight behind M.J. Hegar, who voted in the 2016 Republican primary, in the race to replace Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. The other former Republicans backed by the DSCC are Mark Kelly, who voted as a Republican as recently as 2012 and is now running for an Arizona Senate seat, and Barbara Bollier, who became a Democrat last year and is running in Kansas.
Democrats need to win at least four additional seats — or three seats, and the presidency — in order to take back a majority in the Senate. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who has had trouble recruiting candidates, said he’s focused on eight races, including at least four states where the DSCC has already made endorsements: Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina, and Texas. In some of those states, national Democrats have overlooked popular progressive candidates who say the committee is unfairly playing favorites in races and taking away voters’ ability to make their own choices. By toeing the line between Republicans and Democrats, the DSCC is continuing a broader party strategy of backing away from — and in some cases, trying to intimidate — progressives in favor of more moderate centrists that has been repeatedly shown not to work, costing them several races."
