With the Republicans trying to figure out who they should blame for their election woes, Mitch McConnell’s name keeps coming up.
In the past McConnell has been untouchable as he has been protected by his pals in the Republican establishment.
But Mitch McConnell just got the worst news of his political career and conservatives are cheering.
The election last week should be a wakeup call for Republicans.
Republicans are a national embarrassment
Everything, besides Florida, was a wash for Republicans.
Many expected that Republicans would win the House by at least thirty seats.
But in all honesty it looks like the Republicans will be lucky if they even win the House now.
Now a five seat advantage in the House would be a stretch for Republicans.
But in the Senate the situation is even worse.
Some polls were showing that Republicans were going to hold 53 or 54 Senate seats.
But on election night they lost key races.
Senate races in Georgia and Pennsylvania were supposed to be easy pickups for Republicans.
But on election night it was clear that Mehmet Oz was going to lose to a walking vegetable in Jon Fetterman.
And now Georgia is heading for a run-off election.
But the race in Georgia really doesn’t matter that much anymore as Republicans have also lost in Nevada and Arizona meaning that they won’t get to the 51 seats needed even if they win in Georgia.
So after the election people are trying to figure out where things went wrong.
And all roads to failure point to Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell.
Just every way you look at it, McConnell is the ultimate reason for the Republican Party’s failures in key Senate races.
For one, Republicans in the Senate failed their base thanks to Mitch McConnell.
Republican voters really don’t ask for much.
Conservatives are used to getting screwed over on the fringe issues.
But when it comes to gun rights, conservatives expect that Republicans in Washington, D.C. will at least keep gun rights as a top-of-mind issue.
Well, come to find out Republicans in the Senate, led by Mitch McConnell, were more worried about pushing red-flag laws to promote gun confiscation of law-abiding citizens than they were about holding the line for their base.
So no wonder Republican voters stayed home in some key states.
But if being stabbed in the back wasn’t enough to leave Republicans out of the majority of the Senate, Mitch McConnell also refused to fund candidates in deadlocked races and instead gave millions of dollars to actually fight against a Republican candidate for Senate in a safe seat.
Mitch pulled funding away from key states like Arizona while providing $9 million to attack a Republican candidate in Alaska.
Mitch McConnell dumping $9 million into Alaska so pro-abortion RINO Lisa Murkowski could beat an America First Republican instead of spending it in Arizona for Blake Masters, whose race is going down to the wire, should be the nail in the coffin for his time as Leader.

But it looks like Mitch’s actions may finally be catching up to him.
Out of the blue, Republican Senators started to rebuff Mitch by asking for a delay in voting for Republican Senate leadership.
Senator Marco Rubio tweeted out last week, “The Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed. First we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities & values of the working Americans (of every background) who gave us big wins in states like #Florida.”

Senator Josh Hawley followed Rubio and tweeted out, “Exactly right. I don’t know why Senate GOP would hold a leadership vote for the next Congress before this election is finished. We have a runoff in #GASenate – are they saying that doesn’t matter? Don’t disenfranchise Herschel Walker.”

It’s clear McConnell is in for the leadership fight of his political life after the election.
But in all honesty this is decades in the making after McConnell has screwed over conservative voters over and over again for years now.
