Congressman Collin Peterson might not want to get too comfortable. Yesterday, Vice President Pence barnstormed Peterson’s district urging him to stand up to Pelosi and support President Trump’s trade deal with Mexico.
Peterson, of course, was absolutely nowhere to be found.
But can you blame him?
Since the Democrats took control of Congress, Peterson has taken a sharp turn to the left. This Congress, Peterson has voted against Trump just as often as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to Nate Silver’s famous Five Thirty Eight Project.
See for yourself…
With a record like that, it’s no wonder he chose to make himself scarce.
CLF Comment: “The Democrats took back power and Peterson immediately started voting to obstruct Trump just as often as extreme socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” said CLF Spokesman Calvin Moore. “In a district Trump won by 30 points, Peterson’s days in the resistance are numbered.”
