The Republican Party has a group of candidates for election to the US Senate who are truly horrendous, and therefore promote optimism for Democrats in the upcoming Midterm Elections of 2022.
If these candidates somehow win election, they will disgrace the Senate and its history, as already there are Republican Senators who are a disgrace to the institution!
Among the disastrous candidates are:
Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania against Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman
Herschel Walker in Georgia against Democratic Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock
J D Vance in Ohio against Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan
The odds seem to favor Democrats, but the fight for what is ethical and moral must continue until November to promote a decent future in America!
This weekend, former President Donald Trump was in Ohio campaigning for his selected endorsement of J D Vance for the Republican nomination for the US Senate, and former Vice President Mike Pence was in Iowa testing the waters for a Presidential run.
It seems clear that Trump and Pence are very likely to challenge each other and numerous others for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024, an event that has not happened since 1940, when Vice President John Nance Garner challenged President Franklin D. Roosevelt for the Presidential nomination.
Fireworks are likely, as Pence will continue, rightfully, to defend his upholding of the Constitution in accepting the Electoral College votes on the day of the January 6, 2021 Insurrection.
That was when Pence, personally, was threatened by the mobs encouraged by Trump to attack the US Capitol to try to prevent the ratification of Joe Biden as the 46th President.
It will be fascinating to see the rhetoric employed by Trump and Pence against each other!
