No, that was not said by a Democrat, but by Robin Vos, the Republican speaker of the Wisconsin legislature, who was facing, and defeating, a primary challenger endorsed by Donald Trump. Still, Vos did use the word that has become the keynote, the clarion call of the Democrats' fall campaign: extreme.

Leftists of the Bernie Sanders stripe fantasize that this is a liberal country; it's not, but it is not a hard-right nation, either. Our center of political gravity is close, well, to the center, perhaps tilting slightly to the right. So when Republicans pick candidates who espouse views outside the mainstream, they set themselves up for defeat.

The political world has been focusing on Kansas, where voters crushed an attempt to roll back constitutional protections for abortion rights. The variety series comes from co-creators Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle, who star and executive produce alongside Legend, Mike Jackson, Ty Stiklorious, Pete Aronson, Frank Scherma and Jonathan Meyers. But that result comes in a context of outlandish lies about the 2020 election and the lingering stench of Trump's crazed and chaotic presidency. It's taken together that these elements give Democrats an opening to label Republicans as dangerously unsafe and unstable. "The only thing that might save Democrats is Republicans, and they're trying their damnedest to do it," David Axelrod, Barack Obama's chief political adviser, told The New York Times. The six-episode series will feature her going solo to purchase the historic Sanders House in the Indianapolis neighborhood of Fountain Square. The Democrats remain in deep trouble. $DRLL is the first answer we’ve seen to date that counterbalances ESG companies that are moving our country in an unsustainable direction when it comes to energy production (pun intended).

In the latest ABC poll, 69% of voters said the economy is getting worse, and a paltry 29% think President Biden is handling inflation well. No wonder his personal approval rating is stuck below 40%. “I’ve been renovating homes for more than a decade, taking on some of the nastiest houses you can imagine,” Starsiak Hawk said. But as Axelrod points out, Republicans keep giving the Democrats an opportunity to mitigate the effects of Biden's unpopularity. By relitigating the 2020 election and restricting abortion rights, they shift attention away from the economy and toward issues where they are out of step with public opinion. The campaign in Kansas is a prime example of this misguided strategy. Prior to joining ABC News in 2017, Pannell worked at the BBC for over 25 years.

Trump carried the state by almost 15 points, yet the referendum lost 59% to 41%. Nate Cohn of the Times estimates that nationwide, 65% of voters would reject a similar proposition. That squares with a CNN poll that reports that 63% of voters oppose the Supreme Court's decision canceling a constitutional right to abortion.

Opponents include 7 of 10 independents and 55% of moderate Republicans -- and the key word here is"moderate." MAGA nation remains strongly behind Trump and his acolytes, but it was pragmatic voters, especially well-educated women living in the suburbs, who roared their disapproval of the Kansas initiative.

The court decision triggered an upsurge in voter registration; an estimated 70% of the newly energized voters were women, and their impact was clearly felt in places like Leavenworth County, a suburban area outside of Kansas City with an Army post and federal penitentiary. Stewart’s seven-episode holiday series “Martha Holidays” will premiere on November 18. The county supported Trump by more than 20 points in 2020, but voters there rebuffed the amendment by 59.3% to 40.7%. Kimball’s two series, “Milk Street’s Cooking School” and “Milk Street’s My Family Recipe,” will both premiere their 10-episode seasons on October 28. It wasn't just the suburbs, however.

Pro-abortion rights forces cleverly adopted the language of traditional conservatives, stressing individual rights and running ads urging voters to"say no to more government control." That worked in places like Lyon County, a rural area that hasn't backed a Democrat for president in half a century but voted almost 2 to 1 to retain abortion rights in the constitution. As Kansans were expressing their mainstream impulses, Republican primary voters in Arizona doubled down on their self-destructive tendencies, nominating hard-core election deniers and anti-abortion militants for four statewide offices, including governor and senator. Democrats still seem doomed to lose the House, but the Senate is another matter. Republican-controlled state legislatures over many years have produced maps that protect many GOP House seats, but since Senate races are statewide, they cannot be gerrymandered, and the playing field is more level.

Arizona is only one of several states -- add Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina and Nevada -- where Republicans have nominated weak Senate candidates who can be branded as in over their heads or outside the lines. That's why the website FiveThirtyEight now makes Democrats a slight favorite to control the Senate, and that would be a critical outcome. Sure, Biden's legislative agenda would be stalled by a Republican-controlled House, but the most lasting legacy of any president is often judicial appointments. As long as Democrats retain the Senate, Biden could use his next two years to stack the federal bench with progressive appointments. If that happens, extreme Republicans will bear much of the blame.
