a lot of good that did...

 

It definitely wasn't the red wave across the country like most of us hoped.  At least we are chipping away some of the power from dems.  Let's hope the last few races in the senate work to our favor.  

Republicans just need to double down on Abortion more....

Last night didn't go as expected.  I have a few reasons why.

 

The biggest is mail-in ballot harvesting.  The GOP had 2 years to tighten things up like DeSantis did in Florida.  Instead they did little to nothing and the democrats expanded their ballot harvesting operations into key congressional races.  Before ballot harvesting had been centered around the state wide races - now the dems are bringing it to a local district near you. 

 

Second largest reason is that since Newt Gingrich the GOP has made every mid-term election a national referendum on the opposition president - a strategy that even Nancy Pelosi has adopted. The GOP didn't do that this time and so they failed to tie local democrats to failed national policies of Biden in ads, interviews, and debates.    McCarthy thought he knew better, and kept things local.  This allowed the democrats to grab momentum on Roe v Wade.   Most of the pundits and operatives I've spoken with last night have told me that McCarthy and McConnell's prevent defense let the dems go on the attack and change the national focus.   

Bad prioritization of funds. McCarthy and McConnell clearly wanted Trump candidates to lose and pulled out of races they should have stayed in.  

Finally, there are some candidates that values voters in the south simply will not touch.  Kemp and Walker's vote totals should be similar, but people didn't vote Walker because of his baby daddy past. Trump candidates tend to suffer from poor value voter support.

Oh and one more thing.  

 

Election Day is now election season.  The GOP has to peak in late September and hold that until election day.  Waiting until the final two weeks before spending a bunch of money is a mistake because so many people have already voted by that time.  The debates need to happen sooner rather than after the early vote has begun.  

 

Right now the dem strategy is to go into hiding in October so they don't tick off a squishy moderate and then flood the zone with a harvested mountain of early votes that the GOP candidate has to overcome.

Republican leadership is an oxymoron. At least the Democrat opponents stab you in the front.

 

Warneck has enough of a past that value voters should have called an Uber for him as well. And Fetterman. And for reference, Bill Clinton, Joe Biden. Holding one's nose and pulling the lever has been the practice for quite a while now. Georgia, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Florida for balance, all get the representation they want.
