In Washington, a Battle of the Extremes

From a story on by Madison Fernandez headlined “A battle of the extremes”:

In recent months, Democrats have owned the messaging on “too extreme” stances being pushed by Republican opponents — hitting topics like policies restricting abortion access and beliefs that the 2020 election was rigged. But Republicans are starting to claim that “too extreme” storyline as their own.

Democrats and Democratic groups have spent more than $3 million on ads calling Republican opponents “extreme” over the last month, compared to around $1 million from Republicans, according to AdImpact. A CNN poll from last month found that 55 percent of voters view Republicans as too extreme on abortion. Heading into the general election, it seems that Republicans are redirecting that view to their opponents.
