Democratic 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg’s campaign manager said Wednesday that the impeachment proceedings against President Trump are increasing his chances of reelection rather than damaging them as Democrats hope.
“I worry a lot that we’re setting ourselves here to impeachment, acquittal and re-election,” Bloomberg’s campaign manager Kevin Sheekey told CNN.
“You should be outraged by what this president has done, except it’s not helping in the places where this election will ultimately be decided,” Sheekey added.
The impeachment inquiry is “threatening” the reelection of swing state Democrats, Bloomberg’s campaign chief explained, warning that Trump has a “pretty clear shot” at winning the six states Sheekey said the presidential election is decided by, namely Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina Florida, and Arizona.
“The impeachment proceedings are making the president’s re-election more likely, not less likely,” Sheekey concluded. (Read more from “Bloomberg Campaign Manager Says Impeachment Probe Is Making Trump’s Reelection ‘More Likely’” HERE)
