Gallego: We Are Less Than 60 Days From Totally ‘Kicking the S–t Out of the Republicans’


Rep. Ruben Gallego (D., Ariz.) told an audience of Democrats on Saturday that they are less than 60 days from totally "kicking the shit out of the Republicans." Gallego made the comments at a unity event for the Maricopa County Democratic Party.

"Guy, guys, and ladies—We are less than 60 days from totally kicking the shit out of the Republicans," the congressman said.

Gallego made the comments at an unity event for the Maricopa County Democratic Party.

"And I’m not just talking in the blue districts. I’m not just talking the fight in the 28 where they’re always fighting. I’m talking we’re gonna win here in Chandler. We’re gonna win Oro Valley. We’re gonna win in Chino Valley. We’re gonna win in anything that has a valley. We are going to win and turn this state blue," Gallego said.

He said Republicans are "cowards" and will continue to be, and so, Democrats need to fight.

"So every day we are out there, we have to fight. We have to fight ‘cause Republicans are cowards and they’re gonna continue to be cowards. We have to fight because it’s only us that will fight for everyday Americans," Gallego said.

Gallego is no stranger to controversial comments. He has called President Donald Trump a "psychopath," told immigration officials they wouldn't be safe, and said the Republicans' health care plan would "kill people."

The two-term congressman recently stated he is considering a run for the Senate in 2020. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R.) appointed former Sen. John Kyl (R., Ariz.) to fill out the term of late Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.).

"We’re going to get through these November elections, make sure the Democrats take control, and then after that, I’m going to meet together with family, friends, and supporters and decide next year whether to run for Senate," Gallego said.
