For the next few weeks, the mainstream media will try to spin the 2022 Midterm Election results as a win for Democrats. They will push stories that suggest Republicans’ support for America-first, conservative policies were a mistake. They will even claim the midterms proved Joe Biden is a “success” and that he must run for re-election
But it’s all a lie. The midterms shaped up just as people predicted. Republicans will take the House and the Senate will remain mostly split. Biden’s agenda has stalled and not much will happen in Washington until we get a new president. But the big story from Election Night wasn’t out of the D.C. swamp. It was numerous state-level races that decided governor seats.
And guess what happened to the most conservative, America-first governors in America?
All the country’s top conservative governors were easily reelected in midterm elections…
Governors Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Jared Polis of Colorado, Brad Little of Idaho, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Brian Kemp of Georgia, and Greg Abbott of Texas were all ranked in the top 10 of conservative governors in a Laffer-ALEC analysis last year and coasted to reelection on Tuesday…

So, let’s get one thing straight. The future of the Republican Party is not less conservative, it is more. Because the most conservative governors in America all won their re-elections, in fact, they won by large, uncontested margins.
Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota, won re-election by a whopping 26.8 percentage points. Gov. Ron DeSantis won re-election by a staggering 1.5 million votes, unheard of in Florida. In fact, DeSantis did so well, that the entire party won big in Florida–wiping out all Democrats who were contesting at the state level.
Greg Abbott, who ran against the left’s favorite fake Hispanic, Beto O’Rourke, won his re-election by 11% percentage points. These weren’t “close” races by any stretch of the imagination. These governors won handily. Nobody thinks their wins were flukes or the result of “irregularities.” They dominated in their races, along with their state allies, because of their uncompromising commitment to conservative values.
Some of these leaders, like Noem and DeSantis, are even being talked about as possible 2024 contenders. Meanwhile, the lukewarm, compromising RINO-supporting Republicans in D.C. suffered major disappointments this November.
Not a big mystery why. A “red wave” didn’t sweep over Congress, because there were far too many moderate and weak figures calling the shots. But everywhere strong conservatives ran at the state level, there were big wins.
This should be a clear sign to the GOP that the future needs to be in the hands of conservatives who actually back their talk with action. No compromises with the left. No polarizing, exaggerated nonsense. Just putting Americans first and sticking to time-honored values that work.
It’s not rocket science, Mitch McConnell!
