(Tuesday) former U.S. Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-Le Claire), candidate for Congress in the Iowa 2nd District, issued the following statement in response to the ongoing effort by House Democrats to impeach President Trump on baseless charges:
“From the moment President Trump took office, the Democrats have sought to undo his election through whatever means possible. The charges being levied against him by partisan opportunists are totally without merit, and the American people recognize this entire process for the circus it is.
“Far be it from me to provide the Democrats with advice, but the path they are on is a surefire way to lose the House in 2020. That starts with the Iowa 2nd District. Rita Hart is staying quiet on impeachment because she knows it is a political loser with working families, but rest assured: if elected, she will be a foot soldier for Nancy Pelosi. She will fully embody her San Francisco values on issues like abortion, guns, and immigration. And there’s no doubt that she would vote for this baseless impeachment if she were a Member of Congress right now.
“Iowans are sick and tired of the political gamesmanship taking place in Washington. They want someone who will set partisanship aside and put Iowa families first. That’s what I intend to do if elected in November.”
