Sunday, on ABC's “This Week,” Democratic strategist Donna Brazile spoke on the midterm elections that are scheduled for November.
Brazile claimed that the GOP is “essentially running on fumes” due to “the “energy” of the so-called “big lie” of 2020. Brazile claimed that, on the contrary, Democrats “are running on the economy that's roaring back” and “fighting inflation.”
“All we have to do is wait over the next 37 days as 11 or 12 states hold their primaries. You have big primaries in Ohio, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania where the former president has already tipped the scales and supported one candidate over another,” Brazile declared. “The Republicans are essentially running on fumes. They're running on the energy of 2020, which is the big lie. Democrats are running on an economy that's roaring back, that is fighting inflation, that is helping the Ukrainians. Democrats will run on what they delivered. Republicans are going to run on the fumes of 2020.”
former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie laughed at Brazile's claim, and claimed that Brazile was false and that the GOP had been “running on the gas that Joe Biden is giving us at $5 a gallon.”
“Come on,” Christie replied. “We're running on the gas that Joe Biden is giving us at $5 a gallon. That's what we're running on. We're running on $5 gasoline. We're running on 8.5% inflation. We're running on a failed withdrawal from Afghanistan. We're running on a president and a Democratic Party that their own party … said this week created this inflation through the rescue plan in January.”
