Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota pointed to the hurricane heading toward Florida on Tuesday while claiming Democrats must win the upcoming midterm elections.
“We just took action on climate change for the first time in decades. So we have to win this, while this hurricane hits Florida, we have to win in the midterms,” said Klobuchar said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.
Florida residents are preparing for Hurricane Ian to approach the Sunshine State and potentially cause serious damage.
The Republican National Committee Twitter account RNC Research shared the clip with Klobuchar’s comments and wrote“Did Amy Klobuchar just suggest voting for Democrats will stop hurricanes?”
Christina Pushaw, director of rapid response for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign, tweeted, “So the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ didn’t stop inflation, but it expects us to believe it will stop…. hurricanes?” Pushaw too commented“Florida experienced hurricanes throughout recorded history before there were Democrats and Republicans. But the Science Party will never miss an opportunity to make politics about a natural disaster. Crude and shameless.”
“Democrats now claim they can control the weather and stop hurricanes. It’s like they’re waking up and coming up with new things to lie about since all they have is a record of failing to sell to voters,” said GOP co-chair Tommy Hicks tweeted.
“Since you can’t afford a house when Dems are in power, you don’t have to worry about flooding…” GOP Senator Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted.
“Your constituents rightly believe that ‘doing something about climate change’ will change the weather and make hurricanes less severe. They’re idiots,” said David Reaboi tweeted.
Democrats will aim to retain control of both houses of Congress when Americans vote in the 2022 midterm elections.
