As voters are making their way to the polls on Tuesday, most-recent polling indicates momentum shifting heavily towards Republican candidates.
In years past, voters have favored a sitting President’s opposing party. Coupling this trend with Biden’s poor favorability numbers, many expect Republicans to take both the House and Senate.
Speaking with The Hill, Jim Manley, a former aid to the late Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, “I thought a few weeks ago that we could keep the losses in the House to single digits. That’s no longer the case. And my big fear is what is going on with the Senate races.”
In the House, Republicans are expected to gain an extraordinary 25-40 seats. A majority of that magnitude would be able to put the breaks on Biden’s leftist agenda.
With an eye to the future, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on CNN, “The first thing you’ll see is a bill to control the border first.” He also said, “You’ve got to get control over the border. You’ve had almost 2 million people just this year alone coming across.”
McCarthy went on to describe how he views using impeachment to punish political opponents, “We will never use impeachment for political purposes,” McCarthy said. “That doesn’t mean if something rises to the occasion, it would not be used at any other time.”
Within the Senate, Republicans are likely to flit 4 seats. The Arizona race has captivated many political analysts. Republican Blake Masters has been neck-and-neck in the polls with incumbent Democrats Senator Mark Kelly.
Other races Republicans have been focusing on are:
New Hampshire – Don Bolduc (R) vs. Maggie Hassan (D) (incumbent)
Georgia: Herschel Walker (R) vs. Raphael Warnock (D) (incumbent)
Nevada: Adam Laxalt (R) vs. Catherine Cortez Masto (D) (incumbent)
Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) told Fox News, “The energy on our side is unbelievable I’ve been traveling all around the country, whether it’s Don Bolduc up in New Hampshire, or Oz, Herschel Walker. We’ve got big turnouts all across the country.”
