Democrats already had a tough row to hoe, given that the party in power typically loses in midterm election cycles, even when things aren’t going too badly. Under President Joe Biden’s disastrous administration, Dems are already preparing for a November bloodbath.
According to the Washington Examiner, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently noted that what especially drives Americans to the ballot boxes are “pocketbook issues,” of which the Biden administration has created many.
With soaring, record-setting inflation, sky-high energy costs, and other day-to-day increases in routine expenses, ticked-off Americans will take action on Election Day, and Pompeo believes that Republicans will not only win back the House, but also retake power in the Senate.
“We’re going to have an election where the American people recognize what’s good for them,” Pompeo told the Examiner. “That means you’ll have a big majority in the House. And I think we’ll take back the leadership in the Senate as well.”
Pompeo’s been busy
Since leaving the Trump administration, Pompeo had been a steady face in Republican politics, helping fundraise and spread the word for the upcoming election.
The former secretary of state emphasized that Republicans winning majority control in Congress in the upcoming election is the “course correction” needed to stake out a victory in the 2024 presidential election.
“This is the course correction that we need,” Pompeo explained.
He added: “I’m counting on the American people to recognize that we have inflation and rates we’ve not seen in most people your age’s lifetime.”
Given his steady media appearances and fundraisers, some have speculated that Pompeo could be eyeing up a potential White House run in 2024, though he deflected questions about the possibility, as most politicians do.
“Where I am after that, only the Lord knows,” Pompeo said, referencing the aftermath of the 2022 midterms.
He added: “We’re working hard. We’re doing all the things that need to be done so that I can continue to stay in this same fight.”
One thing that Americans can count on this year, though, is the guarantee that the November midterms will be one heck of a show.
