Democrats are having a field day after the lackluster results for the GOP in this year’s midterms. Republicans should have dominated on Election Night. Joe Biden’s horrible failures, coupled with the Democratic Party’s pathetic lack of leadership and anti-American agenda should have made it easy for Republicans to sweep many elections.
Instead, they barely gained a majority in the House and will not flip the Senate. How did this happen?
The media is trying to blame Trump. It is possible Trump’s involvement cost a few candidates their races. But many eyes are turning to another key Republican leader who had the money and influence to secure many critical races. While House Republicans worked overtime to build a platform, this man dragged the Senate down. And now, many are calling for his head.
After Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell sabotaged Republicans in the 2022 midterms — pulling spending from competitive GOP candidates such as Blake Masters and even actively spending money against state GOP-endorsed candidates like Alaska’s Kelly Tshibaka — a growing chorus of Republicans is signaling it’s time for McConnell’s tenure in Senate leadership to end…
At a rally the day before Election Day, the soon-to-be senior senator from Missouri reportedly said, when asked who should lead the GOP in the Senate, “not Mitch McConnell.” […]
[Marco Rubio], who earned a huge victory margin in his reelection bid took to Twitter on Friday to call for the “Senate GOP leadership vote next week” to be “postponed.” […]
[Mike Lee], who just won reelection against independent challenger Evan McMullin, reportedly joined a letter along with Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson and Florida’s Rick Scott calling for the GOP leadership vote to be postponed. [Source: The Federalist]
Once again, Trump has been proven right. For years, he’s criticized Mitch McConnell, saying the man is actually a RINO who cares more about placating Democrats and the Chinese Communist Party. Only now are top Republican leaders in the Senate calling out McConnell for his refusal to support the party during such critical elections.
McConnell actively campaigned against some Republican candidates. He refused to help fund close races, such as the one in Arizona. He has not been an out-in-front face during Joe Biden’s administration. McConnell should be a leading voice criticizing Biden’s failures and vowing to Americans that the GOP can right the ship.
But where was he when Biden mandated vaccines? Or gave Afghanistan to the Taliban? Or triggered runaway inflation? Or refused to open federal land for drilling? Or vowing to codify abortion rights?
Is McConnell a Republican leader at all? He’s sat back and let Democrats run a muck all across Congress. Not once did he provide a platform to present to voters this midterm cycle. Instead, he claimed hammering Biden’s failures was enough to win the elections. Obviously, that was wrong.
Either McConnell is helping Democrats or is too incompetent to work against them. And now, more Republicans are waking up to the fact that, regardless of the reason, he is unfit to lead any longer.
