During a Fox News interview, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) discussed the Republican Party’s strong performance during this week’s elections, saying that a red wave is building for the 2022 midterms.
“I think people are rebelling against what the Democratic Party stands for nowadays, the never-ending mandates and restrictions because a COVID, using our school system for leftist indoctrination, rather than high-quality education, and then the Biden regime failures from Afghanistan to the southern border, gas prices, inflation, supply chain,” DeSantis told Fox News. “I think you had Glenn Youngkin, who really I think did a great job, was a great candidate, and I think he really represented a contrasting vision that was much more appealing to the majority of Virginians.”
“And I do think … this wave is building, I think it was strong last night, but I think it’s going to keep building all the way into 2022,” DeSantis continued. “And if you go back to the 2010 wave that Republicans had, I think there’s more dissatisfaction with what’s going on in D.C. today than there was at this time in that election cycle. And that is good news for Republicans. And that is bad news for Joe Biden and his regime.”
Republicans won the election for governor in Virginia, a state in which Biden won by 10 points, and almost won the election for governor in New Jersey, a state which Biden won by 16 points.
“Gov. Philip D. Murphy of New Jersey governed his largely suburban state as a steadfast liberal, winning an increase in the minimum wage, a tax hike on the wealthy and the legalization of marijuana,” the New York Times reported. “But when he ran for re-election this year on that unabashedly left-leaning record, Mr. Murphy, a Democrat who just weeks ago seemed destined for an easy victory, came surprisingly close to losing to a conservative Republican, Jack Ciattarelli.”
“Mr. Murphy’s narrow victory, combined with a Republican upset in the Virginia governor’s race and Republican gains in the New Jersey State Legislature, suggest the nation’s political winds may have shifted rightward,” the Times added.
