The democrats are well aware what awaits them in 2022.
A red wave is very likely coming.
This is why the number of dems announcing their exit or retirement this year has now grown to a total of 18!
That staggering number occurred on Monday, following New York Rep. Tom Suozzi’s announcement that he will be leaving his seat to run for governor of New York.
For comparison sake, only 11 republicans have announced they are leaving.
Republicans need only to flip 5 seats to gain back the House.
Nancy Pelosi’s days as House speaker are likely numbered.
Fox News has more on Suozzi's decision:
Democratic Rep. Tom Suozzi of New York is jumping into his party’s increasingly crowded 2022 primary for governor.
The centrist three-term Democrat who represents a congressional district on the north shore of New York’s Long Island announced on Monday that he’s running for governor rather than seek reelection to the House.
"I’m a common sense Democrat who gets things done," Suozzi repeatedly said as he declared his candidacy for governor during a news conference and in a campaign video.
"I’ll work with anybody. I’ll work with Democrats. I’ll work with Republicans. I’ll work with progressives. I’ll work with moderates. I’ll work with anybody to actually solve problems and get things done on behalf of the people I serve. I’ve got a proven record throughout my career of always doing that," he emphasized.
Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), had this to say to House democrats over the weekend:
“Retire or you’re going to lose next fall.”
Here's more on Emmer's simple message to House dems from Breitbart:
Boyle noted that the last time Emmer spoke to Breitbart News, his message to Democrats was “retire or lose next year,” and that many Democrats have elected to retire this year. He then asked Emmer for an update on Democrat retirees and whether Nancy Pelosi would soon join them.
“When you’re advancing an agenda that is so out of step with Main Street America, when you’re driving inflation that we haven’t seen in three decades, when everything is more expensive at the grocery store, at the pump, as a direct result of your incompetence. Yeah, you should consider retiring,” Emmer said.
“When you drive this crime wave with this ridiculous defund the police nonsense and you claim you support the police but you’re not willing to stand up and fight back against Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talib, Cori Bush, and others that swear by it, you’re complicit.”
“My message is the same one I gave to you before Matt: any Democrat who goes home over Thanksgiving needs to make the decision either retire or you’re going to lose next fall,” he said. “And I’m going to tell you, Nancy Pelosi, she should retire. The writing’s on the wall. Her majority is doomed because of her incompetence and failed leadership.”
