Senate Democrats in red states are worried the impeachment process may spin out of control and destroy their chances of winning control of the Senate in 2020, according to a report.

Those Senate Democrats hope the House keeps its impeachment focus on the Ukraine controversy and act srelatively quickly before President Trump turns the tables on them, according to a report by The Hill.

Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), who barely kept his seat in 2018, told the outlet, “It’s really incumbent on the House to really be laser-focused. The president is a master of pivoting and deflecting and I think it’s really important to stay focused.”

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WVA) told the Hill, “I think it’s much better if it’s going to be focused because there’s a whole load of hay out there that they’ve been talking about for so long.”

“I just think anytime a foreign entity is involved, it needs to be investigated,” he added.

Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), who won former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old seat and is up for reelection next year, said he does not want impeachment to drag on and sink other legislative items.

“Obviously we need to get to the bottom of all this quickly,” he told the Hill. “I want it to come to a head as quickly as possible. I think the American people deserve it to be resolved one way or another.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) also told the Hill the impeachment process should not “drag on for too long.” “It’s September. It ought to take a couple months and that ought to be it,” she said.
