Joe Biden’s Presidency is such a disaster that members of his own party are trying to find a way out.
Rising inflation, a horrific withdrawal from Afghanistan, and unconstitutional mandates are just a few of the items killing Biden’s approval ratings.
Now Democrats are retiring in droves leaving the GOP scrambling to reconfigure its original 2022 campaign plans.
As the New Year quickly approaches more Democrats are announcing their intentions to retire.
House Representatives Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Lucille Roybal-Allard of California and Albio Sires of New Jersey all announced this past week that they will not seek reelection in 2022.
There is no doubt many Democrats see the writing on the wall and are running for the hills before they get destroyed in the 2022 midterm elections.
These latest announcements bring the total to 23 House Democrats who have announced they are either retiring or running for a different seat instead of for reelection in 2022.
This news doesn’t bode well for the Democrat Party holding onto its razor-thin majority in the House.
Republicans only need a net gain of just 5 seats in the 435-member chamber to regain the House majority.
The slew of Democrat retirements does, however, have the GOP scrambling to reconfigure campaign plans.
Prior to Thanksgiving, House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, made a prediction that Democrats would be retiring instead of facing a challenge in 2022, but he didn’t know it would be this many retirements.
House Democrats are “going to make a decision to retire, that’s the best time so they can go get another job. When we get that retirement number up higher, into double-digit figures, the whole thing becomes a different play,” McCarthy stated at the time.
Well, he got his double-digits that’s for sure.
Of course, redistricting lines are also coming into play and have many elected officials playing the waiting game to see what really happens to their district.
Whatever the case may be, things look good for the GOP and history is on the party’s side.
But they might need to go back to the drawing board should anymore Dems decide to take the easy way out.
