Kyrsten Sinema’s surprise announcement of last week has been on my mind for a few days and I think I may have sorted out its implications bit more. Much more importantly I have an idea of what impact it may have on the 2024 election. Let’s look at both of those for a few minutes.
It seemed like it would never end but late Tuesday evening the 2022 election finally did with Rev. Dr. Senator Raphael Warnock narrowly defeating a totally unqualified Herschel Walker in a relic of Jim Crow runoff. There are a lot of opinions in that sentence and I stand by every one of them!
I almost feel sorry for Mitch McConnell. Only almost.
Understandably Mitch McConnell wants to be Senate Majority Leader again. Going into the 2022 election and needing to only net one seat you can see why he felt that could happen. (Here is the scary part: it still may.) Had the GOP recruited and gotten their number one draft choices through the primaries it would be all but a lock. That is not what it looks like less than a month from Election Day.
