For a variety of reasons, Nancy Pelosi’s House majority is on shaky ground.
Because of redistricting and the new census, the Republicans are expected to pick up the majority in the House in 2022.
That, along with some high-profile resignations and House members who have decided to try for higher office, the Democrats are in real danger of losing seats.
I expect Pelosi to announce that she will not run again since she will lose the Speaker’s job.
Charlie Crist is expected to make a run for governor against the popular Ron DeSantis. Rep.
Cheri Bustos (D-IL) is retiring after barely winning reelection in 2020.
Pennsylvania Democrats Reps. Conor Lamb and Chrissy Houlahan are both considering Senate races.
Sen Pat Toomey, a weak-kneed Republican has decided against running again. Earlier this year, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) and Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) announced their intent to retire.
Frontline Democrat Rep. Stephanie Murphy (FL) has also been “seriously” considering a Senate bid in hopes of unseating Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in 2022. Murphy previously announced, “she’s launching a statewide listening tour and has hired a top Democrat operative to manage the effort.” Breitbart News has previously reported Murphy seeing a flood of corporate cash into her campaign from big multinational companies with deep ties in China on her recent Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
Another Florida Democrat, Rep. Val Demings, is considering vacating her seat and campaigning against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R). Currently, the Florida Democrat Party is in “shambles” before state redistricting. A source close to the Democrat told Politico “At this point, it’s more likely than not that she does run.”
Vulnerable Democrat Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (TX) has been hammered by the Republican campaign arm, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). Recently, Breitbart News broke the story of Gonzalez holding more than $100,000 with the Bank of China, a state-owned organ of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). After the initial report by Breitbart News, Gonzalez closed the account. The NRCC released ads hitting the Democrat for his suspicious behavior.
