Quitting because its already lost.
Chip Forester is quitting as the leader of the Tennessee Democrat party but he may still have a future as an election prognosticator. You see, Chip is already admitting Tennessee Democrats are going to lose a ton of seats in this election. In fact, he has already conceded 11 of them in the house and 4 in the senate before election day!!!
Chip, care to give out your list of losers?
From the Tennessean article...
Forrester spent most of the hour-long interview, which he requested, talking about the “New Path Forward” plan and Democrats’ hopes for turning Tennessee blue again over the course of multiple election cycles. He said the party needs to identify and mobilize new voters, focus resources on winnable races, and develop a stronger “bench” of candidates. Democrats hold just 24 of 99 state House seats and nine of 33 Senate seats.
“Over time, we’ll move the ball downfield. We’re on the 24-yard line,” Forrester said of the House numbers. “We’ve got to get to the 50.”
