Republican Senators’ Approach To China

Publisher's note: The author of this post is Mitch Kokai for the John Locke Foundation.

    Mica Soellner reports for the Washington Examiner about a U.S. Senate Republican electoral emphasis.

  • Sen. Martha McSally of Arizona released a campaign ad earlier this year with a distinct message to voters: Never trust a communist.
  • On the campaign website of North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis, voters can find an 18-point plan of action to "hold China accountable" for the coronavirus pandemic that's led to the deaths of more than 160,000 people in the United States.
  • Sen. Steve Daines of Montana is inviting people to sign a petition supporting an investigation into the Chinese Communist Party for allegedly covering up its role in the pandemic.
  • Since the pandemic began, leading to lockdowns and social distancing measures, Republican lawmakers, conservative pundits, and President Trump have made it a point to tie the coronavirus outbreak to where it originated: China. A handful of Republican senators introduced a bill last month to allow U.S. citizens to sue China in federal court for damages over its handling of the pandemic.
  • "Their decision to cover up the virus led to thousands of needless deaths and untold economic harm," Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said in a statement. "It's only appropriate that we hold the Chinese government accountable for the damage it has caused."
  • Republicans are at risk of losing their Senate majority in the chamber as well as the White House at a time of a health crisis mixed with a wave of social unrest with less than 100 days until Election Day. They appear to be rallying around the strategy of painting China as a nefarious adversary responsible for all the misery and hardship going around.
  • A leaked 57-page memo, drafted by O'Donnell & Associates and shared with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, encouraged GOP candidates to focus on vilifying China and blaming the Chinese Communist Party for the outbreak.
