Woman graduates Ranger SchoolDemocratic leaders are recruiting military veterans to seek public office but the leader of a military watchdog doubts that plan will succeed.

Looking toward the 2018 elections, Democrats are seeking at least two dozen veterans in the hopes their military background will attract independent voters.

Several veterans have already announced their bids in some of the 79 Republican-held House districts according to an April story by news website Politico

Democratic leaders have met with 255 potential candidates in 64 districts, the news story reported. 

That tactic seems like a "superficial attempt" to mislead voters, says Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness.

"And I think the voters are going to see right through it," she predicts.

Any veteran who runs under the Democratic Party label is unlikely to last long if they espouse conservative views on abortion, immigration or other issues, says Donnelly, who battled the left-wing indoctrination of the armed forces during the Obama administration.

"That veteran is going to be discriminated against by the Democratic Party," she observes, "because they do not allow such dissent."
