Democrats realize that their policy positions on social issues, the economy, immigration, and criminal justice are unpopular, which is why many candidates running in the 2022 midterms have attempted to camouflage themselves as moderates despite their record of supporting radical left-wing policies.

One of the best examples is Representative and Senate candidate Tim Ryan (R-Oh.) who is facing off against Trump-endorsed J.D Vance in the midterms.

In the last month before the midterm elections, Ryan has carried out an ad blitz where he holds himself out as a moderate and says that he opposes culture wars and ‘woke social policies and rhetoric.

Despite his recent pivot, Ryan once said that he supported releasing a million criminals from U.S prisons and supported eliminating cash bail.

The report from Breitbart comes as violent crime is skyrocketing across the United States in large part due to soft-on-crime policies by Democratic politicians and prosecutors.

Breitbart Reports

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), running against Republican J.D. Vance for Ohio’s open United States Senate seat, once pledged to free a million inmates from prisons across the nation.

In 2019, while vying for his party’s presidential nomination in the Democrat primary, Ryan told the left-wing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that he would free half of all inmates sitting in U.S. prisons and jails if he were president.

“You’ve made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50 percent during your presidency,” ACLU of New Hampshire Political Director Jeanne Hruska reminded Ryan during a question-and-answer event.

When asked how he would free about a million of the roughly two million inmates in United States prisons and jails, Ryan suggested starting with drug laws by cutting penalties and sentences.

During the same event, Ryan said he supports “eliminating” cash bail for suspects accused of crimes — a policy position that would mimic New York’s law that regularly frees from jail suspects accused of violent crimes.
