Democrats failed in their election efforts to pit neighbor against neighbor and divide people by race and gender. The GOP’s big wins in Congress prove that. Not one Republican incumbent lost their race in the House. While there are dozens of races still to be called, it’s looking like Democrats will end up with their narrowest House majority in two decades once the new Congress is sworn in in January.
Even more exciting is the Republicans were able to flip congressional seats with candidates of diverse backgrounds who agree on conservative policy as their common ground.
“These people are not going to be great representatives just because of their gender, their race. These are people with incredible backgrounds,” National Republican Congressional Committee chair Tom Emmer reportedly said. “And I’ll tell you that we wanted the best candidates. That’s what we were looking for across this country.”
At least 10 Republican women, minorities, or candidates who served in the military ousted incumbent Democrats. During the run-up to Election Day, the left banked on its diversity propaganda to attack conservative Americans and Republicans as “racist.” The move backfired as African-Americans increasingly voted for GOP candidates and support for President Donald Trump improved.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ushered in a record number of Republican women and credited the president for helping to narrow the Democrats’ majority in the House.
“President Trump won this election, so everyone who’s listening, do not be quiet,” McCarthy reportedly said.
Among the standout wins for the GOP, former All American, NFL star and Super Bowl XV champion with the Oakland Raider Burgess Owens stunned the political world by upending Democrat Ben McAdams in Utah. Congressman-elect Owens has been a vocal opponent of the professional athletes who kneel during the National Anthem.
The newly-minted Congressman has been dubbed “a cultural counterweight to the hatred that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has spewed for the last few years” and “an outspoken black conservative Republican.” He appeared on Fox News multiple times, denouncing the disgruntled former NFL quarterback as “an anti-American leftist.” Owens’ win demonstrates that substance and policies that benefit the lives of everyday people defeat the fake news narrative the country is divided by skin color and gender.
Among the eye-raising revelation coming out of the election is that GOP candidates didn’t merely beat left-wing incumbents in safe conservative states. Battleground contests and seemingly secure blue states experienced Republican disruption.
South Korean-born Republican Young Kim defeated Democrat Rep. Gil Cisneros in California’s 39th Congressional District. The Navy veteran rebounded after losing to Cisneros in the 2018 election.
“America is a country where an immigrant girl from South Korea can rise to be a representative in the United States Congress and I will work to continue to keep that promise alive,” Congresswoman-elect Kim reportedly said.
She is joined by Republican Michelle Steel who unseated Democrat Rep. Harley Rouda in California’s 48th Congressional District. And Rep. Nicole Malliotakis won a seat in New York City over her Democrat opponent. Liberals were stunned by their candidates being taken to task in states known for their affinity for radical left-wing policies.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi came under heavy fire after Republicans won elections in what they believed were Democrat strongholds in Miami, FL. Cuban-born Mayor of Miami-Dade Carlos Gimenez beat Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in the state’s 26th Congressional District, and Maria Elvira Salazar turned Florida’s 27th Congressional District Red by flipping Rep. Donna Shalala’s seat. Party leaders were floored to discover that Cuban-Americans do not vote Democrat just because they are Latino. Policy differences such as socialism are what intelligent voters look at before casting a ballot.
