Schumer Caught On Hot Mic Saying Democrats Are ‘Going Downhill’ In Georgia Senate Race

A hot mic caught Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) speaking with President Joe Biden about the Democrats’ strategy for the midterm elections.

In the recording, Schumer said the party is going downhill in Georgia.

“The state where we’re going downhill is Georgia,” the senator said to Biden, unaware he was being recorded. “It’s hard to believe that they will go for [the Republican Senate nominee] Herschel Walker].”

Schumer made the remarks when he met Biden at an airport in Syracuse on Thursday.

Walker, a former football player endorsed by former President Donald Trump, faces Sen. Raphael Warnock in a tight race for the Senate.

In the past few months, Walker was accused of pressing women to get abortions, which contradicts his conservative positions.

But the scandals didn’t affected the polls, according to political analysts.

Schumer also addressed his view on the performance of John Fetterman, the Democrat nominee for the Senate in Pennsylvania. He recently faced Republican Mehmet Oz in a tense debate in which Fetterman, who suffered from a stroke a few months ago was deemed to have done poorly in.

“It looks like the debate didn’t hurt us too much in Pennsylvania as of today, so that’s good,” Schumer added, also pointing out that he thinks the party is “picking up steam” in Nevada.
