“Last election cycle socialism helped Republicans. I think this time critical race theory is an absolute disaster for the Democrats,” recently said Senator Rick Scott of Florida. He’s right. The Republicans have a great bench, excellent candidates, and are on track to take back the Congress and increase their gubernatorial majority.

FNC: “The chairs of the Republican Senate and governors reelection committees say the policies being pushed by President Biden and congressional Democrats are increasingly unpopular and they argue that will benefit the GOP as the party tries to regain majorities in the House and Senate and increase its number of governorships in the 2022 midterm elections. ‘I think it’s clear that Biden’s honeymoon is over. It was pretty short,’ Sen. Rick Scott of Florida told reporters on Monday.
Pointing to the results of a new poll commissioned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the Republican Governors Association (RGA), the NRSC chair charged that Americans are ‘rejecting Biden and the Democrats’ increasingly radical agenda.’ Scott touted the results of the survey, which was conducted in 26 battleground states with key Senate and gubernatorial races next year. The partisan poll indicated a majority see the country on the wrong path, are concerned about the massive government spending proposals being pushed by the Biden administration and congressional Democrats, and, by a slight majority, blame the president’s polices for the rise in inflation.”
Scott said Americans “are scared to death over what’s happening to inflation” and that “the Biden agenda and the Democrats’ agenda is not popular.” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, the RGA chair, spotlighted the fact that “independents see country going the wrong direction. Ducey said that “these are things we’re in a position to point out and we’re going to continue to amplify.” Talking about critical race theory, Ducey said, “I think most people see as wrongheaded and unnecessary in our K-12 education system.”
Ducey on the midterms, “we have 16 strong incumbents that we’re going to be protecting, but we see real pick-up opportunities in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, Kansas, Maine, New Mexico, as well as opportunities in Nevada, Colorado and Connecticut. So it’s a map that favors us. The direction of the country favors us.”
