Anyone know why Republicans are so terrified of holding Town Hall meetings this year?

    Lawmakers ditch town halls: 'They want to avoid those gotcha moments'

    Jones, who hails from a ruby red state where more than 60 percent of the voters went for Trump in 2016, said it’s particularly important for lawmakers in states like his to hold events, so they don’t end up in their own “echo chamber.”

    Incumbent Republicans in upstate New York are going to great lengths to avoid their constituents

    ----------------

    So what's the big deal? Republicans have done what their base voted them into office to do. They should be proud.

    They should go in front of their constituents and boast about all the things they've done.

    The only people crying about Republicans to hold town meetings are the ones who aren't going to vote for Republicans anyway.

    We have no need of showing how uncivilized the Left is these days. They are so good at doing that themselves.

    Probably afraid of being shot at, stabbed or attacked by deranged Leftists with TDS.

    I'm a Republican. I'd be happy to go to town hall meetings. No problem at all.
