Republicans think these popular policies will hurt Brent Welder. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.
“A group largely funded by a major conservative donor is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in a swing seat Democratic congressional primary in Kansas, hoping to persuade voters to nominate a progressive candidate supported by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The ads, from the conservative group Ending Spending, aim to boost Brent Welder, a former Obama and Sanders campaign official who is running in the Democratic primary for the right to challenge GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District, which covers Kansas City and its suburbs.
Ending Spending is largely funded by billionaire TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, who donated $1 million to boost President Donald Trump’s election. Ricketts’ son, Todd, is the finance chair of the Republican National Committee. Other major conservative donors have also backed the group. While it sometimes attacks Republicans, it has focused the majority of its firepower on Democrats in recent cycles. Its “attacks” on Welder are designed to appeal to Democrats ahead of Tuesday’s primary, potentially creating a clash between Welder and Yoder in November.”*
