Flanders gaining on Sheldon Whitehouse as Rhode Island U.S. Senate seat is up for grabs

Bob Flanders

Here comes Bob Flanders. The Rhode Island U.S. Senate race has heated up as Senator Sheldon Whitehouse has watched his poll numbers collapse in the aftermath of his embarrassing performance questioning Brett Kavanaugh. 

The Flanders campaign has gone into full gear as the race has moved into a single digit lead for Whitehouse. A poll last month by WPRI had Sheldon at 54% and Flanders at 35%, however the numbers have changed. Democrat sources say new internal numbers show Sheldon Whitehouse at 47% and Flanders at 40%, with 13% undecided. Whitehouse has watched his numbers with Independent voters collapse and his numbers with men have fallen significantly. (Check out the new Flanders TV spot below.)

 Senator Sheldon Whitehouse has became a punchline in Rhode Island and across the nation after his questioning of Judge Brett Kavanaugh over his high school yearbook. Voters are awake and suddenly Sheldon is in trouble. In 1998 Sheldon Whitehouse was elected Attorney General of Rhode Island. In 2002, Whitehouse lost in a Democrat primary for Governor. Senator Whitehouse won his Senate seat by beating Linc Chafee in the 2006 Democrat wave 53% to 47%. In 2012, Whitehouse beat the unknown Barry Hinkley.

Bob Flanders can work with everyone

 Senator Whitehouse is an extreme Progressive liberal who is out of step with Independent voters and average people. He has lived a life of privileged and it has been reported he is a member of an all-white beach club in Newport. Whitehouse still refuses to answer questions about a fake Kavanaugh accuser and why he instructed the man to call a reporter with his fake story. Sheldon still refuses to name the reporter or explain why he wanted a fake rape story about Brett Kavanaugh to reach the media.

hold on

 Sheldon is not a great debater and will have his hands full with Bob Flanders. Flanders is more of the moderate voice Rhode Island needs in Washington as opposed to the Progressive liberal Sheldon. Bring on the debates. For the last on this Senate race, listen to the John DePetro Radio Show.
