Pro-Repeal Republican Incumbents Should Be Scared this Morning

By August 8, 2018No Comments

Last night’s results from the special election in the 12th Congressional District of Ohio reaffirm what we have already seen in elections across the country: support for health care repeal is an albatross at the ballot box.

Every Republican who voted for health care repeal should be worried this morning. Republicans running for re-election in competitive districts have one thing in common: they overwhelmingly voted to take away Americans’ health care — and they’ll have to answer for this on the campaign trail. Of the Republican incumbents whose races are considered “toss up” or “lean Republican” from the Cook Political Report, all but three who were there on the day of the vote voted for the House health repeal bill:
