The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released a campaign video Tuesday illustrating the Democratic Party’s “race to radicalism” as the 2020 election cycle kicks off.
The more than two-minute video is the first of the NRSC’s “Last Line of Defense” series, which will highlight the Republican Senate majority’s role as the last line of defense against the socialist policies that were touted during the Democratic primary debates.

NRSC’s video shows excerpts of 2020 Democratic challengers promulgating positions on issues such as raising taxes, Medicare for all, immigration and climate change. The socialist policies espoused by the candidates pivot further left than the Democratic Party platform.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has positioned himself as the “Grim Reaper of the Liberal Agenda” and embraced the title.
“Think of me as the Grim Reaper,” McConnell says during the video. “None of [the Democratic agenda] is going to pass”
“Democratic Senate candidates across the country are running alongside presidential candidates whose promises of crippling tax increases, ending private health insurance, and racing toward radicalism threaten American prosperity and security,” said Jesse Hunt, NRSC’s communication director. “Now more than ever, America needs a strong Republican Senate Majority to be the last line of defense to ensure this extreme socialist agenda will never become reality.”
