No moderates in Democratic field

In reference to Mary Sanchez’s July 24 column, “Must Fear and Loathing be the 2020 Script,” a quick answer to that question is, “Yes.” The reason is because the Democrats allowed someone to hand the microphone to this set of radical Democrats, and contrary to what Sanchez suggests, there are no moderate Democrats among the candidates. When they all raised their hand to the question of whether they would support free medical care to illegal immigrants, they unilaterally slammed the door on anyone who had retained a trace of objectivity. Every one of them clamored all over each other as to who was more liberal than the other about “abortion rights.”

It’s apparent even to Sanchez that the Democrats have not just “shot themselves in the foot,” but have blown the foot off with a shotgun.
