Republican Lawmakers Prop Up McConnell

Republican senators are rallying to support Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) after the GOP failed to win the Senate in the midterm elections.

Several GOP senators have called for the leadership election to be delayed until the runoff election in Georgia has been completed. This is because depending on the results of the Georgia election there could be 49 or 50 Republican Senators. The Republican leadership election was set for Wednesday.

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Rick Scott (Fla.), who is tightly allied with former President Trump, has so far failed to convince GOP members that the election should be postponed. This is a sign that McConnell has managed to retain his control over Senate Republicans.

Scott has not pressed for the election to be postponed, nor has he announced whether he would be challenging McConnell, despite having meetings with the rest of the leadership team. GOP senators have said that they would be discussing what went wrong in the midterm election during a lunch meeting on Tuesday.

Some senior Republicans have considered Trump’s role in the midterm elections detrimental. They also noted that it led to many more Democrats voting, despite President Biden having low approval ratings. They have also claimed he was a key reason for the GOP losses in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada.

Retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) last week stated that Trump was to blame for the loss in his state which allowed the Democrats to flip one senate seat as celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz (R) lost to Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D). He also noted that this was the case not only in Pennsylvania but across the country where MAGA candidates lost their elections.

  1. Bottom line is (1) Republicans failed again to monitoring democrats dirty voting tactics we all knows that (2) McConnell excuses accused freshman’s quality do not help and supported at all in midterm campaigning suited dealing with Chuck Schumer behind the back doors he should remove immediately likely not even help out Georgia extended campaign either !

  2. It’s all a big game to them. They don’t care! NOTHING has changed and it might never will. Old Mitch, there you go put the same idiot back into control. KM to take the gavel? Might has well put Paul Ryan back in that spot. NOTHING is changing!

  3. I want to know WHY. MCCONNELL PROVED HE’S A RINO OVER AND OVER AGAIN WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS IN OFFICE. AFTER I WRITE MY GOVERNOR, AND SENATOR ABOUT THEIR STANCE AT KEEPING MCCONNELL. I’LL ALSO BE CHANGING TO AN INDEPENDENT VOTER. MCCONNELL WITHHOLDING OUR MONEY ON SOME OF TRUMPS CANDIDATES HE IS EXACTLY WHY WE LOST THE SENATE. I WILL NEVER VOTE FROM ANYONE THAT LET MCCONNELL KEEP HIS RINO POSITION. AND I WILL ALSO BE WRITING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND LETTING HIM KNOW THAT THERE ARE STILL BACK STABBERS IN OFFICE. THAT WAS THE PROBLEM FOR TRUMP HE TRUSTED THE WRONG PEOPLE THEY ARE WHY HE’S DIDN’T WIN IN 2020 BECAUSE THE RINOS ARE AND ALSO WILL BE ON THE SIDE OF DEMOCRATS. THEY WON’T CHANGE. MY RALLY WILL BE TO GET THEM VOTED OUT

    • I agree 100% and we have far too many RINOS in Republican Party. And Mitch deserves no respect, that’s whe I address him by his first name. Schumer, same as Mitch is thrilled that they will be working together again. Shame on you who voted against the senator who had the guts to run against him, Senator Rick Scott, I think. I don’t always remember names.

  4. First has anyone confirmed Dem turnout was higher than 2018, that’s correct 2018. Turnout numbers fluctuate with Presidential election years always drawing the largest turnout. Second, blame it on “Trump” candidates, or the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs Wade, or whatever however bottom line is the Republicans who ran for Senate won their State’s endorsement thru convention, caucus, or primary – they were the respective State’s Senate choice. Third, once these candidates were the Republican choice ALL support should have been given from ALL Republican circles including McDonnell’s PAC. It wasn’t and we lost. Time for new leadership that puts the party and it’s constituents first.

  5. I agree with Diana about not voting for any body that supports that snake Mitch McConnell. If Mitch gets a leadership role I’ll also be switching my vote to independent and every other republican I talk to I will try to switch to independent. Mitch McConnell and Lindsey graham are wrong for America and the Republican party.

  6. CFP, are your journalists really that stupid?! If these Republican Rino’s want to delay McConnell getting voted out, that is clearly dirty political speak for the Warnock runoff against Walker in GA is already rigged for Warnock to win. Then the Democrats and Rino’s will fix McConell’s minority seat so he will vote for all the Democratic Communist Party’s anti-American, Liberal New Order’s communist policies to destroy our country!
