Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., told Newsmax TV on Tuesday, the success of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the strategies taken by his rivals show how the party has gone "far to the left."
Biggs said the support for ideas like Medicare for All and erasing student debt gaining traction among the party's presidential candidates "shows how far to the left the Democratic Party has gone."
He went on tell Tuesday's "American Agenda," Sanders "has gone far left," adding, even former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete "Buttigieg, who's supposed to be a moderate, he's gone far-left," and former Vice President "Joe Biden himself has had to move to the left quite a bit for this primary, and I think Joe's recent gaffes, his statements kind of caught up with him, but I find it striking."
When asked about the Republican reaction to the Democratic lineup, Biggs said, "it's hard for us to believe that they're going to stick with these folks," he said. "It's hard to believe that they'll let Bernie Sanders win when they put the fix in last time. But people talk about, you know, will [former secretary of state] Hillary Clinton get in, is there somebody else that they're gonna throw in?
"We're just not sure because none of these folks have real major traction going forward. A lot of people stayed home in Iowa. We'll see how the turnout is in New Hampshire, but it doesn't seem like there's a lot of enthusiasm for these folks among Democrats."
