Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been watching her majority shrink significantly as results from the 2020 election continue to come in. And now there is more bad news for her as Republicans flip yet another House seat, this time yet another one in California.
Incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi for New York's 22nd Congressional District leads his Republican challenger Claudia Tenney by only 13 votes.
Sources told Newsmax the Democrats' "sudden claim of victory is very misleading."
Forget the presidential election. These house races have all the drama Americans crave!
The race is important because Republican Claudia Tenney leads "incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi by more than 100 votes."
As the complete disaster Democrats experienced downticket continues to sink in, Democrats are scrambling to figure out how to govern with a razor-thin House majority. To that end, Nancy Pelosi's right-hand man and the number two House Democrat Steny Hoyer is floating the return of earmarks.
Not only did Republicans make big gains in the U.S. House on Election Day, but among those elected are men and women whose families fled communist and socialist countries and came to America to build better lives.
As the Democratic Party engages in a highly amusing circular firing squad over their shock loss of so many House seats, the impact of Republican gains at the state level doesn't seem to have fully dawned on them. Or if it has, they are doing what they do best, kicking that particular can down the road, a decade down the road.
Incumbent Rep. Ben McAdams (D-UT) called former football player Burgess Owens to concede their 4th Congressional District race.
The Republicans have flipped 12 seats, narrowing the Democrats majority even more after this Owens' victory.
Legal Insurrection readers may recall that in 2018, Republican contender Young Kim for the congressional district 39th seat was ahead in election-night counting. She lost the election, but accused winner Democrat Gil Cisneros of "physically tampering" with those ballots.
Now Young Kim is finally on her way to the US Congress.
Nancy Pelosi has reportedly begun rallying Democrats in the event the House is called upon to decide the 2020 presidential election.
The House is constitutionally provided the privilege of selecting the president in the unlikely event of an Electoral College tie. A "contingent election" such as this has not happened since 1824, and happened only once before that in 1800, so there is some confusion about what it actually entails.
Democrats, as we know, are using the death of George Floyd to create havoc in an election year and to do their once every four years "we care about black people" carnival show. They have never been very good at this election year fake show of empathy and concern for black people, but this year, they are really really bad at it.
On Tuesday, May 12, a special election will be held to fill the House seat vacated by disgraced former congresswoman Katie Hill. Hill, you may recall, resigned after being accused of "inappropriate sexual relationships" with staffers.
