Democrats retained control of the US Senate in the US mid-term elections, prompting condemnation from Republicans.
Critics of former President Donald Trump blame him for the Republican collapse. Others have criticized the party’s top Senate leader, Mitch McConnell.
In that context, the White House indicated in its strongest tone yet that President Joe Biden (Democrat) is trying to be re-elected.
The House has not yet decided on a majority.
Control of the House is still likely to be won by Republicans. If that happens, Mr.’s different plans will Biden are eliminated. But as the votes continue to be counted, the number of seats that Republicans with a majority are expected to win is decreasing.
Broadcasters across the country reported last weekend that Democrats had secured their seats in the Senate races in Arizona and Nevada, confirming that they would retain control of the Senate.
“This is the third election that Trump has done badly,” said Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a longtime Trump critic, told CNN on Thursday.
“He said we’d be tired of winning, but to be honest I’m tired of losing.”
It has become a habit for the ruling party to lose seats in mid-term elections. The Democrats’ performance this year is considered the best of any governing party for at least two decades.
“People in Washington said we couldn’t win. They said it was because of history,” Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of California told ABC. He said on the show.
Pelosi said the Democrats “never accepted the opinion of the pundits” and were focused on “the difference between them and their opponents.”
As of Wednesday, Pelosi is one of several Democrats who have endorsed Biden for re-election in 2024.
Will it be the same as last time?
White House senior adviser Anita Dunn said she would announce her decision on Biden soon without being influenced by “what the other side is doing or what other candidates are doing. ” he told CBS News.
Dunn also said the results of the midterm elections were “very important” to the Democratic agenda. Biden said he believed he was “the right person to continue the progress we’ve made.”
If Mr Biden runs for re-election, it will likely be a rematch in 2020. Trump is expected to formally announce his intention to run for president in 2024 on Thursday.
The possibility of such an announcement exacerbates – or reinforces – old loyalties within the Republican Party. Trump’s allies have attacked lawmakers critical of him, led by Senate Majority Leader McConnell.
“The brand of the Republican Party that Mitch McConnell and others put forth is not convincing and has failed to convince voters,” former Trump adviser Stephen Miller told Fox News.
