Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, recently sat down with Breitbart News and revealed the number one reason we never saw the red wave many were anticipating during November 2022:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's "terrible record."
It makes sense that Hawley would have some problems with the Republican from Kentucky. Josh was one of about ten Republicans to oppose McConnell's recent bid to continue as the Senate minority leader.
Hawley doesn't think success is going to find Republicans until some leadership changes happen at the top of the party, saying:
I’m from the state of Missouri. We’re pretty independent-minded. In my view, we have to do what is right. You have to have the courage of your convictions. So I’m happy to go out there and say, ‘We need a change in direction in the Senate GOP.'
"Listen, if you look at the last just two years in the Senate: Cave to Big Pharma on insulin. Cave to Chuck Schumer on gun control. Cave to the radical left on the climate agenda. That’s the so-called infrastructure bill," he concluded. "That’s a terrible record. And then they wonder, 'Why didn’t we do better in the midterms?' Gee, why, I don’t know." He added:
We got to do something different, and we’ve got to give the voters, including independent voters, we’ve got to give them something to believe in us and trust us, and we haven’t done that in the last couple of years.
