A Democratic candidate who lost her candidacy during the special elections for Congress in Texas last weekend raised the alarm that the 2022 mid-term elections "could be a major setback" for the Democratic Party.
Republican Susan Wright, the wife of late Representative Ron Wright, won 19 percent of the vote, while Jake Ellzey got 14 percent. Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez came in third with 13 percent and relinquished on May 2.
Susan Wright, notably, was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, who on Monday championed his endorsement.
“Please explain to the Democrats and RINOs that the reason Texas-06 completely shut out Democrats in Saturday’s Jungle Primary is because of my Endorsement of Susan Wright, who surged last week after receiving it,” the former president said in a statement on Monday. “RINO,” or “Republican in name only,” is a term used against Republicans who seemingly embrace progressive or Democratic politics.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives is currently split into 218 Democrats to 212 Republicans with five vacant seats, which means Pelosi can lose just two votes to pass the legislation. If there is a tie in the House of Representatives, the bill will not pass.
