Tucker: Ignore the 'Pundits,' Far-Left Candidates in FL, AZ, CA Can Win in November
Tucker Carlson said Wednesday that, despite media reporting, the Democratic Party -- and not the GOP -- is facing an identity crisis of sorts.
Carlson said that the gubernatorial primary victory of Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) — a Sen. Bernie Sanders-endorsed far-left candidate — is more proof the Democratic Party is looking less like the one once headlined by President John F. Kennedy.
"The Democratic Party is transforming before our eyes," Carlson said, noting that Gillum wants to "replace ICE," treat health care as a government-funded "right," and that the candidate also supports the impeachment of President Trump.
Gillum told CNN Trump "incriminated himself" by allegedly obstructing justice in firing FBI Director James Comey.
Carlson said that voters should not pay attention to media "pundits" who may consider Gillum an outlier with low likelihood to beat Republican Ron DeSantis.
"They were embarrassingly wrong in the last election," he said. "Andrew Gillum could win."
Carlson said that similarly, Arizona's Democratic gubernatorial nominee David Garcia has supported having "no wall" on the Mexican border.
Additionally, he noted that California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom wants to expand the San Franciscan policy of health care-for-all no matter immigration status to the entire state.
"[You] sneak into a country, ignoring its laws, and you get free health care in return," Carlson explained.
"If enough of these candidates do win, you won't have to imagine what a borderless America would look like," he said.
