Voters will decide the makeup of Congress on Tuesday.
The midterms are looking to be close, with nobody knowing who will come out victorious.
And Democrats just did the unthinkable to keep Republicans from voting.
Democrats On Voting Rights
Democrats like to claim that Republicans are trying to suppress voting rights.
They cite Republican measures to require ID to vote as proof.
In their minds, securing our voting systems is voter suppression.
And at the same time, they work to allow felons and illegal aliens to vote.
They know those groups are more likely to vote for them.
But there are segments of the population more likely to vote for Republicans.
And one of those segments is hunters and gun owners.
Democrats are working to restrict their rights every day.
So they are likely to hit the polls to protect their rights.
That’s why Democrats would be better off if hunters didn’t vote.
And that’s exactly what they are trying to achieve in North Dakota.
Democrats Try To Suppress The Vote
Hunters in North Dakota were shocked to see a political ad encouraging them not to vote.
A mysterious Facebook page called Hunter Alerts sent out an ad reading:
“ATTENTION HUNTERS: If you vote in North Dakota, you may forfeit hunting licenses you have in other states. If you want to keep your out-of-state hunting licenses, you may not want to vote in North Dakota.”
The ads appear to be paid for by the state’s Democrat Party.
And the statement made in it is entirely false, as admitted by North Dakota officials.
It is likely a last-minute play by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, who is in the political fight of her life.
As a Democrat in North Dakota, she is being exposed as a liberal, when she has been trying to paint herself as a moderate.
Voters in North Dakota are very conservative, so that is necessary.
So far she hasn’t done a good job of that.
That makes it a positive for her if hunters don’t vote out of fear of losing out-of-state hunting licenses.
The North Dakota Democrat Loses Support Fast
Heitkamp has been losing support steadily in the past year.
But her troubles reached a fever pitch during the fight to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
North Dakota voters support Kavanaugh.
60% believe his confirmation is a good thing.
But Heitkamp doesn’t, and voted no, justifying her vote by saying:
“When I listened to Dr. Ford testify, I heard the voices of women I have known throughout my life who have similar stories of sexual assault and abuse,” Heitkamp began.
“Our actions right now are a poignant signal to young girls and women across our country. I will continue to stand up for them,” Heitkamp said.
In response, voters turned against her.
Her Republican challenger is ahead by 12-points.
So she has little chance at winning on Tuesday.
That’s why a major dirty trick is worth trying.
It will likely backfire, but it was a last-ditch effort in a race that is likely already lost.
