Nancy Pelosi Receives the Bad News, and It’s Just the Beginning

Dave Wasserman, U.S. House editor of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report has sounded the death knell of the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives and the Speakership of Nancy Pelosi. Wasserman posted via Twitter that “Needless to say, tonight’s results are consistent w/ a political environment in which Republicans would comfortably take back both the House and Senate in 2022.” The sentiment is spreading rapidly through political circles as figures on the right sound the battle cry and those on the left express their quiet alarm and it is only the beginning. The days of Speaker Pelosi leading a majority in the House appear to be at a close at last. The Red Wave is indeed coming.

An Election About Education Is Beginning To Teach The GOP Valuable Lessons

Republican Study Committee Chairman, Rep. Jim Banks released a memo advising his colleagues of the lessons the party has learned in Virginia:

There are four lessons learned from Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia:

First, the concerns of parents need to be a tier 1 policy issue for Republicans: Youngkin’s success reveals that Republicans can and must become the party of parents. There is real energy from parents that we need to understand. The good news is RSC has been working for months to build out an agenda in education that will fight for and empower parents. This will include needed oversight of the Biden administration. …

Second, we need to end the mandates. In a Washington Post Op-ed Youngkin wrote, “Most important, we will never lock down our economy again.” And it’s not just business restrictions. Youngkin opposes vaccine mandates and mask mandates in public schools. We’ve been doing this at the federal level already: Claudia Tenney and I introduced a bill to prevent OSHA from instating its unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

Third, we must continue to back the blue. Youngkin pledged to increase funding for police departments and protect “Qualified Immunity for our Law Enforcement Heroes,” which House Democrats tried to end through their police reform bill. Crime, and particularly homicides, have spiked in Virginia and in every other state. In July, a USA Today poll found that crime, ahead of everything else, was the number one issue Americans were most concerned about.

Fourth, we must continue to focus on the failures of the Biden economy. Youngkin focused on providing relief to runaway inflation caused by the Biden economy and on not locking down the economy again. Our early focus on runaway inflation and the growing supply chain crisis is hitting home with voters. We need to keep hammering away and work on bringing solutions to the table to address their concerns. In 2020, Biden won Virginia by 10 points, and the year before Democrats took over both chambers of Virginia’s statehouse.

Lessons Pelosi And The Democrats Refused to Learn

Republicans are beginning to implement their strategy to retake Congress almost immediately after Tuesday’s elections. The word is spreading quickly that many elections that were endorsed by the GOP throughout the day were seeing success.

“A red tide swept over Long Island, with the Republican candidates for district attorney in both Nassau and Suffolk counties winning their races in stunning landslides Tuesday — turning the campaigns into a referendum on New York’s controversial bail reform law,” the New York Post noted Wednesday morning.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, Head of the House GOP Conference saw notable success amongst state-local and county-level candidates whom she endorsed. She concluded, “This was a clear referendum on the disastrous ten months of Joe Biden’s administration and a Republican resurgence fueled by outrage after years of corrupt, Albany politicians destroying our state,”
