the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee recently conducted focus groups in key House battleground districts to test “messages related to impeachment.” Voters were asked whether “quid pro quo,” “extortion” or “bribery” were more compelling. “
The focus groups found ‘bribery’ to be most damning,” according to the Post.

I hope Democrats will consider returning to the negotiating table so we can reach a compromise and finally reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. #VAWA
Despite these games, Senator Ernst has been working on introducing a good faith proposal that both sides can agree on. It’s a shame that something this urgent and important has somehow been politicized.
For 25 years, #VAWA has supported survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through a range of critical programs and resources, but Democrats walked away from the negotiating table to pursue their own partisan reauthorization.
As a long-time victims’ rights advocate, I'm a proud supporter of #VAWA and have consistently fought to continue this program. Unfortunately, Democrats have once again chosen to play politics rather than deliver real results. youtu.be/eErITjeK2KI

Sen. Schumer has called my bipartisan Affordable Prescriptions for Patients Act “good” & “well-intentioned,” yet he still keeps blocking it. This bill protects innovation, increases competition, and lowers prices for patients – he needs to stop playing partisan games & pass it https://t.co/5Mqndr0sws
This is an uncontested, bipartisan bill that we can pass TODAY. But Senator Schumer keeps blocking it. The only people rejoicing at this very moment are the people who are gaming the patent system and keeping the out-of-pocket price of prescription drugs high. https://t.co/PmTTWIZJ3E
My colleague from across the aisle not only believes my Affordable Prescriptions for Patients Act “should become the law of the land,” he also believes it will be “helpful in reducing the cost of pharmaceuticals.” Yet Senator Schumer keeps blocking it. https://t.co/UgDJ8CznKa
