Record number of Republicans enter House races

Nancy the Ripper is about to lose the House. Marisa Schultz of Fox News reported, "A record number of [Republican] candidates have filed to run for office in the House and Senate, breaking last cycle’s history-making numbers from the same point in time. But unlike the 2018 midterms when the surge was driven by Democrats, the congressional boom this time is on the Republican side, according to the latest federal candidate and financial activity report obtained exclusively by Fox News."

Schultz credited Nancy's unconstitutional impeachment for the surge. The Constitution requires a crime be committed. Not one crime was even alleged.

The story said, "Republican candidates across the country interviewed by Fox News said they feel momentum is on their side this time. Energized by President Trump and his impeachment acquittal, congressional hopefuls are making the case that Trump needs a fighter like them in the House or else the country will succumb to socialist Democratic plans."

Sarah Bryner, research director at the Center for Responsive Politics, told Fox News, "It's all about enthusiasm driven by the president, both negative and positive. [Republicans] also saw the Democrats do it last cycle. So they know that it is possible. They saw some seats picked off that I think shocked the party and the public. They want to get those back."

Two things are needed in order to win: good candidates and money.

The Hill reported on February 10, "The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has repeatedly outpaced its GOP counterpart, the National Republican Congressional Committee, in fundraising, prompting Republican leaders in Congress to sound the alarm in recent weeks.

"In a closed-door meeting with members of his conference last month, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) acknowledged that Republican members are 'getting our ass kicked' in the money race.

"And Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.), the chairman of the NRCC, said at a breakfast event last month that Republicans needed to raise more aggressively and stop relying on the campaign committee to bolster their reelection efforts."

And of course, Mini Mike is willing to blow a few billion bucks getting Democrats elected and re-elected this year.

History shows that Harry Truman was the only president to lose the House and regain it. In their 49-state sweeps for re-election, Nixon and Reagan picked up but 12 and 16 seats respectively.

Truman picked up 75 and he barely defeated Thomas Dewey.

However, President Donald John Trump makes history. In 2016, there were 22 Senate races in the states he carried. Republicans won every single one of them. And in the 2018 midterm -- historically an easy win for the party out of power -- President Trump led Republicans to defeat 4 incumbent Democrat senators. You have to go back to FDR in 1934 to do as well. FDR defeated 8.


Never Bet Against The Donald.
