Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said the policies supported by the progressive presidential primary candidates show that Democrats have “lost their mind.”
In an interview on "The Cats Roundtable" with radio host John Catsimatidis aired Sunday, Cotton said the 2020 presidential vote “is truly … an election about whether America will be a socialist nation.“
“We are going into a highly consequential election,” he said, according to comments reported ahead of the airing by The Hill. “The Democrats have truly lost their mind.”
In the latest round of Democratic presidential primary debates, White House contenders argued about progressive policies that included implementing health care systems that would eliminate private coverage, abolishing the death penalty and decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings.
“I don’t think Americans want to be a socialist nation,” Cotton said, The Hill reported. “But it will be incumbent upon all Americans to get out and make their voices heard in this election.”
Other Republicans have jumped on the divisions within the Democratic Party candidates over policies, but one, Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., rebuked that division was a case of “progressive versus moderate.”
"I would remind you that the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist," he said in an interview with Fox News. "Even from the less liberal candidates, I heard a job-killing, soul-crushing socialist agenda."
