The Democrats have not revealed whether they will go to war with the Republicans yet again in another attempt at impeaching the president if Trump wins the upcoming election. But, for the time being, one of the leading proponents of the first impeachment hearing, Adam Schiff, is finding himself in his own battle to keep his Congressional seat.
In a virtual debate hosted by the League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank, Successful atttorney and Republican challenger Eric Early went one-on-one with Adam Schiff. The California Democrat has spent almost 20 years in Congress, which is experiencing an all-time low approval rating. The two candidates had a heated debate over such topics as the government’s response to the COVID crisis, the current state of law enforcement, and health of California’s economy.
At one point during the debate, Early told Schiff, “You know Gavin Newsom. Tell him to open up this state. Tell him to get people back to work.” Schiff said that the suffering caused by the pandemic “is hitting every state. It’s not just hitting blue states.”
The message Early is promoting seems to resonate with many of the voters in his district. After an aggressive campaign, the challenger has earned the backing of a wide spectrum of Californians as well as many endorsements from politicians, including one from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
