Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota referenced the hurricane heading toward Florida on Tuesday while she contended that Democrats need to win the upcoming midterm elections.
“We just did something about climate change for the first time in decades. That’s why we’ve gotta win this, as that hurricane bears down on Florida, we gotta win in the midterms,” Klobuchar said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Floridians are preparing as Hurricane Ian approaches the Sunshine State with the potential to inflict serious damage.
The Republican National Committee’s RNC Research Twitter account shared the clip of Klobuchar’s comments and wrote, “Did Amy Klobuchar just suggest voting for Democrats will stop hurricanes?”
Christina Pushaw, who is the rapid response director for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign, tweeted, “So the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ didn’t stop inflation, but she expects us to believe it will stop….hurricanes?” Pushaw also commented, “Florida has experienced hurricanes throughout recorded history, before Democrats and Republicans existed. But the Party of Science will never miss an opportunity to play politics with a natural disaster. Gross and shameless.”
“Democrats now claim they can control the weather and stop hurricanes. It’s like they wake up and think of new things to lie about since they only have a record of failure to sell to voters,” GOP co-chair Tommy Hicks tweeted.
“Since you can’t afford a home when Dems are in power, you won’t have to worry about flooding….” GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted.
“Her voters legit believe that ‘doing something on climate change’ will alter the weather and make hurricanes less severe. They’re idiots,” David Reaboi tweeted.
Democrats will be aiming to cling to control of both chambers of Congress when Americans vote during the 2022 midterm elections.
