Rios: Conservatives need to flip the House

A conservative political pundit doesn't think anyone should be overly optimistic about Republican victories in the 2022 midterms.

With the surge of House Democrat retirement announcements, things are looking worse for Democrats as the 2022 midterm election cycle nears. In a recent Rasmussen Report survey, a stunning 58% of voters are convinced Biden is not physically or mentally up to the job of being president of the United States.

Those sinking poll numbers have Republicans chomping at the bit for the 2022 midterms, but Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, asserts the Democrats are up to their old tricks.

"Just a couple of cautions," she begins. "Right now they're trying to do away with the filibuster in the Senate, and they're trying to pass again in another form in another name a huge bill that will revamp and change the way we vote. There's a certain amount of danger there if Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) don't hold out. That means I'm not sure we could take back anything in 2022."

And Rios points out that having Republicans in control of Congress will do no good unless they are conservative and willing to fight.

"No more RINOS," she insists. "We really need to flip that House to conservatives. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is not a fighter. He's made some good noises, he's done some good things, but when the push comes to shove, he's not a fighter. And so this will not do."

Rios says it will be "very disappointing" if the Republicans take back the House and McCarthy fails to lead properly.
