Report: Two Democrat representatives considering ditching the House to run for the Senate

The Democrats appeared to have a mandate in the 2020 election after they won the presidency and effectively seized control of Congress. However, there are already noticeable cracks in that facade.

Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) and Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) may quit the House of Representatives and make a run for Senate, Breitbart reported. If the rumors are true, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) is going to find herself in a tight spot as their defection could jeopardize Pelosi’s already-narrow majority.

Lamb’s campaign manager, has not confirmed his intentions and reportedly said “no decision has been made.” Nassif-Murphy chalked up a fundraising push to the campaign being waged in “one of the most competitive districts in the country, and Conor is already facing attack ads from national Republican super PACs.” He insisted they are “going to keep raising money, defending Conor’s record, and finding opportunities to help down-ballot Democrats wherever and however we can.”

However, Lamb has quietly made it known he will be vying for the seat that will become vacant when Pat Toomey (R-PA) retires at the end of his term. He has been appealing to some donors to ramp up their contributions and promised to soon launch his campaign for Senate.

Houlahan is also a powerhouse fundraiser and considered one of the top in her delegation. She said she was mulling a run for Senate and would bring a considerable amount of cash already on hand. The former United States Air Force officer has over $3.5 million in her coffers, while Lamb has $1.1 million as of their last filings.

Financial liquidity a vital component of a Senate bid for them both since Democrats anticipate having trouble holding onto their lead going into the 2022 midterm elections. Democrats may be losing key seats to retirements and politicians taking over other positions which makes keeping their majority an uphill battle.

“House Democrats are running for the exits because they know they’re in for a bruising election cycle which will cost them their jobs and their House majority,” Tom Emmer, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee said. The majority party often has a difficult time during the midterm elections as it is. Besides the potential of losing Lamb and Houlahan, Pelosi will also lose Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) who announced Friday she will not be seeking reelection along with the others who may be departing.

Democrats won the day in November 2020 because of former President Donald Trump’s unpopularity among the left as well as the coronavirus crisis. With Democrats now controlling most of the government and running it into the ground in record time, it will be difficult to convince the American people that they are the right party for the country.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out.

I find this and others like it, to be very offensive. I go to your website to gain information, NOT to be bombarded by these fake ads that promise that I will make lots of money. If the big computer companies can control who is heard on their bandwidth, why can’t they stop these garbage emails from finding a home on their websites?

As these Democratic idiots scramble to separate themselves from their Communist brothers and sisters beware of their attempt to convince Americans they have seen the light. They are simply running from their stupidity to change America. Their finished just not destroyed Yet.
