The Free Beacon is still considering Men of the Year nominations for 2014, but recent events have compelled us to announce the unanimous choice for our first ever Couple of the Year award: Chris Hughes and Sean Eldridge.
Why on earth would Hillary Clinton bother to record robocalls for Sean Eldridge? He is by far the worst candidate of 2014, and is currently on track to lose by more than 20 points.
A recent Free Beacon analysis concluded that Sean Eldridge, the Democrat running for Congress in New York’s 19th district, is the worst candidate of the 2014 cycle. On Friday, the New York Times endorsed our analysis. In a profile of Eldridge’s opponent, incumbent Rep. Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), the Times described Eldridge as “a first-time Democratic candidate with a thin résumé and a thick wallet.”
There only one problem with the Times’ assessment. Eldridge may have a “thick wallet,” but it doesn’t belong to him. The money belongs to his husband, Chris Hughes, who made millions after being randomly selected to be Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Harvard. Hughes has already purchased two mansions in neighboring congressional districts in an effort to fulfill his husband’s political ambitions. When Eldridge loses in November, the couple will inevitably move somewhere else so he can run again.
In a little over two weeks, Sean Eldridge will be forced to concede defeat in the NY-19 congressional race. In an ideal world, Republican incumbent Chris Gibson will win reelection by at least 30 points.
Eldridge is the worst candidate of the 2014 cycle, and represents everything that self-respecting Americans hate about politicians. He is an entitled carpetbagger, whose rich husband has purchased multiple mansions in neighboring districts in an effort to fulfill his political ambitions. (Eldridge is married to New Republic editor-in-chief Chris Hughes, who made millions after he was randomly assigned to be Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Harvard.)
Though no longer relevant, the New Republic is celebrating its 100th year of publication next month at a black-tie gala in Washington, D.C. Bill Clinton, a known sexual predator who presided over the Rwandan genocide, will keynote the event. Co-hosts include Aaron Sorkin, Joe Scarborough, and former New Republic intern Fareed Zakaria.
A recent poll of the NY-19 congressional race between lifelong district resident and Army veteran Chris Gibson (R) and carpetbagging Facebook spouse Sean Eldridge (D) shows Gibson with a commanding 24-point lead. The Cook Political Report has moved the race from “lean Republican” to “likely Republican.”
That’s a solid lead, but not nearly enough to prevent a national embarrassment. As the Free Beacon has repeatedly argued, every self-respecting human being should hope Sean Eldridge is utterly humiliated in November and suffers a defeat of no less than 30 points.
