Is It Time for the Grand Old Party to Clean House? – Watch
The whole country is surprised at the outcome of the midterm elections, and the GOP is struggling to make sense out of the Party’s failure to perform as the polls suggested they would. Expectations were high for retaking the House and even the Senate. But the Democrats are holding on to more power than anyone thought that they would.
Democrats will not only keep the Senate, but they may even increase their advantage depending on how Georgia’s runoff election between Herschel Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock ends.
Officials on the right are trying to figure out just what went wrong, and the finger-pointing is increasing.
Many blame the failure of Republicans on former President Donald Trump and his endorsements of candidates. They say his choices when it comes to some of the candidates were wrong.
Other people are saying that the bad press around the former president had a negative effect on the whole party. They believe that all the news stories about the Capitol riot on January 6, as well as the FBI investigations, gave the left too much political ammo against Trump and his candidates.
Still others on the right think that former president Trump is being used as a scapegoat by those who are really to blame for the party’s failure. The members of the GOP establishment are the real culprits. This group is focusing on two people who are seen as the main power players in the old right guard: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) wrote a tweet saying that the old GOP is on its last legs and it is high time that the party move forward without them. “The old party is dead. Time to bury it. Build something new,” he tweeted.
Take a look at this:

Ronna Romney McDaniel has got to go.
Kevin McCarthy has got to go.
Mitch McConnell has got to go.
Anyone who would vote for them to remain in their current positions has got to go.
Who’s with me?
