GOP Leader Says Republicans Could Flip 60 Seats Next Year

Republicans took a victory lap Wednesday following Republican Glenn Youngkin’s stunning win in the Virginia governor’s race, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) predicting his party could flip more than 60 House seats in next year’s midterm elections.

“If you’re a Democrat and President Biden won your seat by 16 points, you’re in a competitive race next year. You are no longer safe,” McCarthy told reporters while flanked by his leadership team and Virginia Republicans.

“It’ll be more than 70 [Democratic seats] that will be competitive. There’s many that are going to lose their races based upon walking off a cliff from [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] pushing them,” he continued. “She may not care if she lose. She lost 63 the last time she was Speaker moving policy that the country didn’t care for. 

“Many believe she won’t stay around” in Congress, McCarthy asserted. Speaking to Democrats, he added, “So she’s not going to be there to defend you.”

Pelosi and the Democrats did lose 63 seats — and the House majority — in the Tea Party wave of 2010, the midterms that came two years after former President Obama won the White House.

    The “America First” MAGA base wants like-minded Republicans! They don’t have to adore everything about President Trump, but they need to support his agenda and respect him. That’s why Rep. David Valadao (one of the “Impeachment 10”) needs to lose the primary. I support Chris Mathys.

    As to Rep. Young Kim. She campaigned to Trump supporters and then as soon as she arrived in D.C., Kim wanted to censure President Trump. Even more upsetting is that Young Kim voted WITH DEMOCRATS to remove Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committees. What?!?! Did you see Kim try to get the racist, anti-American SQUAD representatives removed from their committees? No! Young Kim only went after a fellow Republican congressman and a Republican president.

    Time to primary out these folks!

    • Thanks for mentioning Valadao was one of the RINO nitwits to support the insane impeachment proceedings. Wish I had known since I just made a contribution to his campaign. Lesson learned thanks to you.

      I feel suckered because I thought that he was as solid conservative and a Latino and we must bring more of them and Black folks over to our side. I am sickened by how many of these people hold themselves out to be conservative and the moment they are elected show their true colors much like ala Mitt Romney, the trash bag.

      Not much good to say about the Leftists/Communists but they are masters of destruction and deception.

  2. Thanks Nancy and Chuck, you two CLOWNS ARE THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY;….Drive your party right off the cliff as pig pelosi RETIRES FOR GOOD….Bye Bye Nancy..bye bye chuck
