    Biden’s Worst Nightmare: GOP Gets 1 Seat Closer to House Majority as Incumbent Wins in Close Race

    Published on

    Election Day has farcically transformed into Election Month this year, in an unacceptable rerun of 2020. A positive development for the GOP came late on Sunday when Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona, a sitting Republican, was re-elected to Congress, five days after the election.

    Schweikert moved the GOP one step closer to taking the majority in the House of Representatives by defeating Democratic rival Jevin Hodge in the contest for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.

    As many Republicans, like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, have promised to impeach him if indeed the GOP gets control of the lower chamber of Congress, this scenario may be President Joe Biden’s worst nightmare.

    Additionally, a GOP-controlled House would have the power to veto some of Biden’s radical legislation and put a stop to some of his harmful policies.

    According to Decision Desk HQ, Democrats had won 201 House seats as of 2 p.m. ET on Monday, while Republicans held 215 members, just three short of the 218 required to take control of the chamber.

    Biden conceded that the Democrats’ chances of keeping control of the House were slim on Monday.

    “I think we’re going to get very close in the House … but I don’t think we’re going to make it,” he remarked at a news conference in Bali, Indonesia.

    Redistricting forced Schweikert, the incumbent of Arizona’s 6th Congressional District, to run in the first, therefore his victory was not certain.

    The congressman, a pro-lifer who supports a solid border and lower taxes, gets a career score of 95.48 from the American Conservative Union.

    Republicans were expected to win the House, while Democrats narrowly held onto control of the Senate.

    The “red wave” that many pollsters had predicted did not occur for a variety of reasons, but one thing is clear:

    The United States must clean up its elections to promote transparency so voters know who won within a day or two of Election Day, at most.

    Before that ill-fated night in 2020, Americans typically knew who had won the presidential election before they went to bed on Election Day. (One notable exception was the 2000 race between Republican George Bush and Democrat Al Gore.) CONTINUE READING…
