The Biggest Midterm Story No One Has Told You Yet
Given that the red and blue waves both sides promised failed to materialize, something no one has told you about is that of the very underreported “green wave.”
Indeed, it seems that this particular shade seemingly tried drowning Republicans in left-wing money. Time and again, race after race, many Republicans came against millions of dollars being contributed to their left-leaning opponents by both activists groups as well as the super rich who do not like the “idea” of President Donald Trump.
via Lifezette: House Republicans had hurt themselves by allowing the number of House incumbent retirees to become larger than any time since 1930, when the Brookings Institution started tracking congressional retirements. Breaking an 88-year record for retirees is a tough way to start an off-year election for the incumbent president’s party.
Despite this institutional disadvantage, President Trump’s House losses were far less than either the 54 seats President Clinton lost in 1994 or the 63 seats President Obama lost in 2010.
Measured against the Clinton and Obama standard, you would have to give President Trump an A+ for keeping Republican House losses to a minimum — and setting the stage for a Republican majority comeback in the 2020 presidential election.
The best example of the green wave’s failure is Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas). He became the darling of the media — the Left’s political rock star to battle Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who the media despises.
O’Rourke raised more than $70 million, a record for a U.S. Senate race — and an amount we used to associate with presidential campaigns. After all the liberal media hype, and the sheer volume of money from the green wave, O’Rourke lost.
Given their last failed attempt at celebrities and huge chunks of money, I’m a little surprised that it seemed to have the dent that it did. Do not get me wrong… compared to the previous administrations, Trump and the GOP came out on top.
Still, holding the House would have been icing on the cake.
