Recent weeks have seen a flood of media reports on Republicans facing angry constituents at town-hall meetings, so it’s nice to see the Associated Press point out that many Democrats have been dodging town halls altogether.
Specifically, AP’s Steve Peoples notes that Senate Democrats up for re-election in states that President Trump carried on Election Day just don’t want to show up.
Instead of town hall meetings, they're doing teleconferences and email surveys. That makes it appear as though they're engaging, but nobody can get in their faces. On the other hand, it's a good approach: why burn fuel to get someplace when you can just Skype? It shows that they're environmentally conscious.
