The democratic ship is now sinking and it’s a FACT, we’ve been seeing a number of Democrats jumping from the ship, others seeking refuge, while others will no longer want to be part of this cult.
Recently, Two long-serving Democratic lawmakers announced that they will not seek re-election in 2022, and it simply means that Democrats are about to lose their Majority seat.
Reps. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) and David Price (D-N.C.) announced Monday they will not seek re-election in 2022, the latest to make such an announcement as Democrats look to protect a thin House majority in 2022.
Democrats are now facing uncertainty in winning the House majority in 2022. The growing number of Democrats retiring adds more uncertainty to next year’s election, in which Democrats are already facing an uphill battle due to redistricting and the difficulty of retaining the majority when the party in power also controls the White House.
The decision comes just days after Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth, the key leader of the House Budget Committee, announced his own retirement, bringing the total number of House Democrats who have declared plans to retire or pursue another office to a dozen.
While all three men cited various motivations — the realities of redistricting and a desire to spend more time with their families among them — the decisions underscore the challenges Democrats face as they try to hang on to their razor-thin majorities in both chambers of Congress.
The party that wins the White House typically loses congressional seats in the following midterm elections, and more members are expected to depart as they contend with the reality that they could find themselves in the minority.
Excerpt From Politico Reports:
Two longtime Democratic congressmen will announce their retirements on Monday, according to sources familiar with their plans, a sign of the party’s diminishing hopes of keeping the House majority after next year’s midterm elections.
Reps. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) and David Price (D-N.C.) will not seek reelection, they will announce later Monday.
Doyle, 68, was first elected in 1994 and is a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The 81-year-old Price, who won his seat in 1996, is a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
Doyle plans to make an announcement at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, according to his office. Price is giving an interview at noon on a local, Raleigh, N.C., TV station.
All the left-leaning networks are admitting Joe Biden will get “shellacked” in his first midterm in 2022 based on historic trends.
The fact that two longtime Democrat lawmakers are announcing their retirement ahead of 2022 only reinforces this prediction.
