Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) House is crumbling, and it is looking like the Republicans will regain a majority after the 2022 midterm elections.
“As the twentieth Democrat announced an exit from the House of Representatives after the midterms, the party’s chances of maintaining the majority have declined, as the Republicans only need to net a quarter of those seats to win back the majority,” reported Breitbart News.
California Democratic Representative Alan Lowenthal said he would not run for reelection at the end of his current term, saying, “it is time to pass the baton” as his “journey” comes to an end.
“His announcement is only the most recent, as older or more vulnerable Democrats are leaving their current seats to retire, including three committee chairs, or seek a different office, either on the local or state level,” reported Breitbart News.
“This gives Republicans a chance to gain more seats as strong Republican candidates are already running in the majority — if not all — of the 20 districts. The remaining vulnerable Democrats will also have to face tough reelection battles across the county, and tough competitors. In most cases, they may have to campaign in new areas their district did not encompass before as redistricting maps are being approved,” reports Breitbart News.
Congressional Leadership Fund Communications Director Calvin Moore said that the “House Democrats’ retirement crisis is a five-alarm emergency that’s growing worse day by day. Democrats are dropping like flies because they know they’re going to get crushed next November.”
