Pundits and so-called experts have been spewing their thoughts on the 2022 Midterms. Most of it is empty, partisan garbage. The liberal media is claiming it a win for Democrats, even though they lost most of the time. Republicans didn’t score a “red wave,” but did flip many seats and states–while seeing incredible gains in certain places.
The fallout from the midterm races is pretty clear. If Republicans have a future in 2024 and beyond, they need to clear strategy. Sen. Ted Cruz laid out exactly what they need to do for upcoming elections. And every conservative needs to take notice.
It’s worth reflecting on what was accomplished last night:
- We’ve taken the gavel out of Nancy Pelosi’s hands.
- We learned the following lesson: When Republicans govern as conservatives, we win! [Source: Twitter]

While some conservatives are crying in their coffees, Cruz is reminding them of critical takeaways from the midterm races. Republicans will surely flip the House, regardless of margin. Nancy Pelosi lost her Speakership–and will perhaps soon retire from Congress.
That is a big win to celebrate. As Speaker, Pelosi wasted her power to push partisan bills that even members of her own party rejected. She was a bully and a coward and refused to unite the House for the common good. Her removal from power will open the door for a real leader to take over.
Cruz also points out the biggest lesson from this year’s midterms. States that had unapologetic conservative leaders won big. Texas grew redder, despite claims it was going “purple.” That’s thanks to Gov. Abbott, who fought hard against Joe Biden’s open border agenda.
The biggest wins were in Florida, where they no longer have any state-wide Democrats in power. Republicans dominated in Florida elections, turning the once “battleground” state into a clear red leader. All of that was thanks to Gov. DeSantis, who stood up to Joe Biden, Democrats, and even Disney World.
His dogged fight to keep Florida open, reject CRT and other radical policies in schools, defend freedom, and recover quickly from Hurricane Ian won voters over. Even in blue Miami-Dade, DeSantis and other Republicans won the day. He did the impossible, brought liberals and conservatives together.
If Republicans are going to win, they need to ditch the extremism marked by Trump and the MAGA boosters. And they need to abandon the compromise of Mitch McConnell and other RINOS. That might not be clear to all Republicans right now, but Cruz isn’t successful for nothing.
