Democrats are nervous – very nervous.
Biden’s approval rating continues to tank, and the radical policies Pelosi keeps trying to push through are being rejected at every turn.
Now Pelosi is watching her power slip further away as this top Democrat just announced his retirement.
The 2022 Midterm elections will likely be the end of the Democrats grip on Congress – at least for a little while.
The far-left agenda the Democrats have tried to ram through isn’t working as they planned and now many Democrats are deciding to just throw in the towel.
The most recent Democrat to announce his retirement is longtime Representative Bobby Rush of Illinois.
It was announced earlier this week that the 75-year-old Rush will not seek reelection at the end of this term.
Rush is the twenty-fourth House Democrat to announce his exit.
No doubt this is putting even more strain on an already weak group of Democrats ahead of the 2022 Midterm elections and with Biden performing so poorly it could be a bloodbath come next fall.
Rush was known as a close confidant to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden.
According to a recent report, Rush has voted with Pelosi 100 percent of the time.
This not only weakens the Democrat Party but it will certainly cause a real void for Nancy Pelosi in her inner circle.
While Rush is the twenty-fourth Democrat in the House to announce he will not seek reelection, however, he’s only the sixteenth Democrat to say he is actually retiring from public service.
There is a group of eight Democrats who have said they will not seek reelection in the House but are running for other offices.
Rumors continue to swirl of even more Democrats announcing their departures in the coming weeks and months, especially with the redistricting maps being finalized.
“If Democrats thought their retirement crisis would get better over the holidays, they were wrong. Democrats are abandoning ship as fast as possible because they know their majority is doomed,” Mike Berg, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee stated.
While there are certainly some seats, Rush’s likely being one, that will remain blue that doesn’t mean it will be someone who aligns with Pelosi.
Right now, Pelosi’s problem isn’t just a possible power transfer to the GOP but also the nagging thorn of AOC and her progressive “Squad.”
