The recent victory of Governor-Elect Jeff Landry, a Republican from Louisiana, is hopefully just a sign of things to come.
America was hoping for a red wave during the 2022 midterms.
We didn't get it then, but it could be coming now.
GOP insiders are using Landry's win as a measuring stick for what the rest of the party should be able to do in the near future.
Considering how much of a surprise Landry's win was to many, maybe Republicans are going to pick up a few more victories around the country than previously believed.
Landry is currently the attorney general of Louisiana and won the open primary with an impressive 52%.
By doing that, he doesn't have to face a special runoff election.
Grassroots Republican activist Debbie Dooley, who co-founded the Atlanta, Georgia, chapter of the Tea Party, said that this means Democrats are staring down the barrel of a loaded gun, stating of the party:
...their company have to be quaking in their boots now. You got to look –- the lack of enthusiasm of black voters, and the fact that Landry got a higher than expected percentage of the black vote, he got a minimum of 12%, that’s unprecedented in Louisiana for a Republican.
