Democrats are adding the “drain the swamp” message to their 2018 midterm messaging. Their new slogan is “A Better Deal for Our Democracy,” and the party pledges to implement new ethics laws, reduce the influence of lobbyists and tighten rules around fraud convictions.

So why the messaging shift? The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese and Stephanie Hamill discuss this move and other topics in this episode of The DC Today.


“Democrats want to use drain the swamp as a part of their 2018 midterm campaign, where have I heard this phrase before? Who’s used this phrase before? Of course, President Trump has used it, “ Coglianese explained.

Coglianese added that it’s hilarious that the Democrats think they can seize this — if anything, they’re just going to push more people over to Trump’s side.

“You gotta love how desperate the Democrats are. All that had to run on was impeaching Trump, then they realized that wasn’t going to work for them. So now they’re stealing Trump’s message. The Democratic Party is the swamp,” said Hamill.
