Democrats are hanging on to their majorities in Congress by a thread.
Republicans are salivating over their chances of winning back control of the House of Representatives.
And Nancy Pelosi was given two options on how her career ends that she is going to hate.
Minnesota Congressman Tom Emmer is in charge of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
In an interview with Breitbart, Emmer explained that the voters in Virginia and New Jersey sent a clear message they were fed up with the Democrats’ radical agenda.
Emmer described how since both states shifted 13 points to the right, Democrats running in districts that Joe Biden won by 10 points were at serious risk of defeat.
And Emmer told Democrats that they could either retire or lose next fall – either way Nancy Pelosi’s days as speaker of the House were over.
“After Virginia, New Jersey, and these other races across the country last week, I really believe that even if you were in a district that Joe Biden won by 10 points just 12 months ago, you’re at risk—which is why I’ve said very clearly over Thanksgiving, these targeted Democrats have a choice to make,” Emmer stated. “I mean, you can either retire, or you can lose next fall. It’s up to you.”
Many pundits want to compare 2022 to the Tea Party wave election year that saw Republicans pick up a record 63 seats in the House of Representatives and fired Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House for the first time.
Emmer said it was not an apples to apples comparison because in 2022 Republicans only need to flip six seats in the House compared to 38 in 2010 so the GOP already starts from a higher baseline.
“What I usually say and I’ll stick with it is we’re going to win back the majority,” Emmer said. “I think, much like lawyers in a courtroom who think they’re smarter than a jury, the jury always has the last word. In this case, the American people will tell us what they think. But I don’t think it’s apples to apples comparing it to 2010. Because remember, in 2010 they [the Republicans] started I think at 179 seats. We’re starting at 213. It is a redistricting year. So once all the maps are done you would expect that the true swing seats will even narrow down a little bit. So we’re going to focus on the things we can control,” Emmer began.
Emmer told Breitbart that polling data showing Republicans holding massive leads over the Democrats on the most important issues facing voters – inflation, crime, the economy, border security and foreign policy – showed that the environment was ripe for a red wave that would sweep Republicans into power next year.
“We’re winning on all the issues that are most important to the voters and we’re winning with the voters that we need to win over that are in these deep Democratic territories—college-educated white voters, Hispanics, and independents. If you look at the issues—border security. We’re favored, Republicans are favored by almost a 30 percent number that we can handle border security better. Inflation, it’s almost 25 points better. Crime, it’s over 20 points better. National security, it’s over 20 points. The economy, it’s almost 20 points, and even on the issue of getting things done we’re almost 15 points better based on these voters in terms of what we’re looking at,” Emmer concluded.
