Trump impeachment tests swing district Democrats

(8 Oct 2019) THERE'S BEEN NOTHING QUIET ABOUT FIRST VISITS HOME BY MODERATE DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS AFTER THE DECISION WAS MADE TO START AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY INTO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. SOUNDBITE (English) Rev. James Allen, town hall moderator, to Trump supporter in the audience: I will throw you out. I don't have no problem about throwing you out. Now, if you have a question, we'll ask your question but you are not going to sit here and heckle the Congresswoman. UPSOUND (English) Town hall attendee: There's anger out there. They are tired of this president being undermined and this is just another phase of this. FRESHMEN DEMOCRATS WERE PEPPERED IN HEATED TOWN HALLS MEETINGS DURING THEIR TWO WEEK-RECESS FROM WASHINGTON. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Elissa Slotkin, (D) Michigan: All I can tell you is I did not come to this lightly, and I did not want to be doing this. I felt compelled to do it. SOUNDBITE: (English) Elaine Luria, (D) Virginia: And this instance is a clear instance of the President of the United States enlisting the help of a foreign leader to influence and malign a potential political opponent to affect the outcome of our next election. LURIA AND SLOTKIN, ALONG WITH FIVE OTHER FRESHMEN WHO FLIPPED REPUBLICAN DISTRICTS IN 2018, PLAYED CRITICAL ROLES LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. SOUNDBITE (English) Kyle Kondik, University of Virginia Center for Politics: If the Democrats tell the story right, it is probably an easier one to explain (than the Mueller report) and that maybe that's why some of these national security Democrats were willing to go along here. BUT THE DECISION IS NOT WITHOUT RISK.  SLOTKIN'S MICHIGAN DISTRICT WAS CARRIED BY TRUMP BY 7 PERCENTAGE POINTS IN THE 2016 ELECTION SOUNDBITE (English) Larry Parsons, Slotkin Constituent: I think she's under control and influenced by (House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi and not her constituents. There's nothing that the president has done that is impeachable. STILL, IT'S NOT CLEAR THAT THE CALLS FOR FORMAL CHARGES AGAINST TRUMP HAVE GENERATED WIDESPREAD VOTER BACKLASH. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Moran, Slotkin Constituent: I salute Elissa Slotkin for standing up and being willing to risk her career on a principle. IN VIRGINIA - IN ONE OF THE MOST DEEPLY SPLIT CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS IN THE COUNTRY - THERE ARE SIGNS THAT LURIA'S CALL FOR TRUMP'S IMPEACHMENT SITS UNEASILY AMONG SOME OF HER CONSTITUENTS SOUNDBITE: (English) Elaine Luria, (D) Virginia: You know, people sent me to Washington to make tough choices and you know, I spent 20 years in the military.  I didn't spend 20 years in the Navy to watch this happen, to watch the Constitution be trampled on and I feel very strongly that I made the right decision. DEMOCRATS ARE CLOSELY WATCHING DISTRICTS LIKE THESE FOR CLUES TO WHETHER THEIR DRIVE TO IMPEACH TRUMP SUPPORTS OR THREATENS THE PARTY'S 2020 PLANS. TRACY BROWN, ASSOCIATED PRESS.
