Just about the only good thing about 2021 was that it wasn’t 2020, much as the Democrats have tried to make it so. But I am excited about 2022. A Republican majority, no Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden throwing temper tantrums because he can’t get anything done. I think it’s going to be a very good year.
With the end-of-the-year holiday break fast approaching, the announcements came quickly. A trio of Democrats in the House of Representatives – Reps. Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Lucille Roybal-Allard of California, and Albio Sires of New Jersey – last week said that they’ll retire at the end of next year rather than run in the 2022 midterm elections for another term in Congress. The latest news brought to 23 the number of House Democrats who are retiring or bidding for another office rather than run for reelection in 2022, when their party tries to defend its razor-thin majority in the House amid historically unfavorable headwinds and a rough political climate. The GOP needs a net gain of just five seats in the 435-member chamber next year to regain the House majority it lost to the Democrats in the 2018 midterms.Surge in House Democratic 2022 retirement announcements as 2021 comes to a close | Fox News
