Could Adam Schiff Lose his Next Election?

 

Adam Schiff just got some serious competition for his 2020 reelection campaign.

Eric Early is a high powered Beverly Hills Attorney who ran for California Attorney General in 2018 and received almost a million votes, which for a Republican in CA is very good. Now he’s set his sites on beating shifty Schiff in CA-28. We interviewed Eric last month (see below) and when I asked if would run against Schiff (his Congressman) he gave me a wry smile.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 10, 2019
CONSERVATIVE ERIC EARLY ANNOUNCES CHALLENGE TO ADAM SCHIFF, CA-28 
Early Calls Schiff A National Disgrace And Vows To Hold Him Accountable For Damaging America.

LOS ANGELES, CA – July 10 – Today, Eric Early announced his candidacy for Congress in California’s 28th District. Conservative Republican Eric Early, a successful private attorney and proud father, will challenge Schiff and hold him accountable for wasting taxpayer resources, misleading the public, failing to address and completely ignoring the serious problems that plague our community like skyrocketing homelessness, the extraordinary cost of living, out of control taxation and more.

Eric Early stated, “Schiff is a national disgrace. His sole focus has been on trying to destroy a President. I plan to hold him accountable for his misdeeds and blatant self-interest.”

“He’s been in elected office for 23 years and has nothing to show for it other than vanity clips on national television and tens of millions of wasted taxpayer dollars. Our community is crumbling while Schiff lies to us about supposed Russian Collusion. Homelessness has skyrocketed on his watch. Every day Californian’s cost of living is out of control. Crime is on the rise and Schiff, by his actions and inaction, shows that he couldn’t care less,” continued Early.

“I’m taking the fight directly to Schiff… to hold him accountable, for the people,” Early concluded.

Chief Strategist for Eric Early’s campaign, John Thomas, said, “Our campaign is gearing up on behalf of every American to send a message that we deserve better than another self-serving politician who will say or do anything to feather his own nest. We look forward to running an aggressive campaign to defeat Shady Schiff in November.”

    Dave,

    How about something really simple for the bumper sticker. SHAFT SCHIFFTY AND VOTE EARLY!

    Oh, be still my beating heart! Could this be the end of Shiffty?

    Ari,

    Wow! Vote harvesting at the cemetery. What a campaign strategy. With this, the Chuck & Nancy show could get back into vaudeville.

    It would be pretty to think so, but I would be surprised if Schiff wins by less than 10 percentage points.

    Yeah, but you can’t apply human standards of beauty to aliens (of the extraterrestrial variety) like that. He’s probably perfectly handsome for a whatever he is.

    It would be wonderful to defeat Schiff. However, just a few months ago he won re-election with 78.4% of the voters. Early has his work cut out for him.

    Yes. And. If real opposition in mounted in every district, the Democrats and their funders must defend everywhere. Concede nothing. Expand the map until they trade back “blue” for their natural color “red.”

    That would be a wonderful surprise but the demographics suggest otherwise. California has a higher margin of fraud to overcome than even most blue states. With thumb-on-scale state and local officials and “harvesting” combined with illegal alien registration, a GOP candidate probably starts 10-15% down. He will need 60% or more of actual voters in a district redrawn after the last census to make that unlikely.

    He should switch parties and run as a Democrat. The name of the Party doesn’t have a bearing on what the politician will actually do (witness the many Republicans who vote like Democrats) so why run a sure losing campaign by declaring as a Republican? After getting elected he can switch back to Republican. The first liar never wins in politics.

    One of my fondest memories was seeing Henry Waxman on the day after after the 1994 elections when Democrats lost the House for the first time since 1954. He looked completely drained. 

    For a long time, he had this ritual of holding an annual campaign fund-raiser on his birthday. Kinda like a Mafia don receiving tribute. He and Howard Berman were incredible fund-raisers. Rich California liberals gave those two lots of influence.

    As did the Big pHarmaceutical companies.
