North Carolina Republicans are hopeful about the midterm elections following major Republican victories in Virginia and across the country. Voters are rejecting Joe Biden's agenda that raises taxes, kills jobs, increases prices, defunds our police, opens our borders, and forces indoctrination into our schools. North Carolinians' apathy toward Biden's out-of-touch agenda, coupled with the RNC's continued preparation, gives North Carolina Republicans reason to be optimistic for a Red Wave next November.
Bottom Line: The red wave we saw in the 2021 elections puts the Republican Party on track to retake control of both chambers of Congress in 2022. As put by RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel, "Democrats should be worried.
Republicans hopeful about NC midterms after VA results
North State Journal
Alex Nolley, the North Carolina communications director for the Republican National Committee (RNC), said in a press release that the RNC believes the results in Virginia, where Republicans dominated Democrats up and down the ticket, were "foreshadowing what the 2022 midterms will look like for Democrats in North Carolina."
The Virginia results saw Republican candidate for governor Glenn Younkin defeat former Gov. Terry McAuliffe. The vote was a major shift from the double-digit victory Democrats had in the presidential race a year ago.
One article written before the Virginia elections, by Ned Barnett, associate editor of the left-leaning opinion pages of the Raleigh News & Observer, predicted, "The Republican Party has become the Party of Trump. How he affects the Virginia race will say a lot about which of North Carolina's polarized forces will prevail in 2022."
"Newsflash for Democrats: swampy socialist policies that raise taxes, kill jobs, increase prices, defund our police, open our borders, weaken parents, and force indoctrination into our schools are NOT POPULAR,"
Nolley continued in the statement. "Commentators and reporters across the spectrum got the message. Will North Carolina Democrats?"
Republicans in the state didn't wait for Virginia's results to start working on their 2022 plans. At the end of October, activists in the party held a "National Weekend of Action"
that included over 30 events that educate volunteers on voter contact best practices.
"Every time a volunteer has a conversation with an undecided voter, that voter becomes more likely to get out the vote. The events that took place during National Weekend of Action this weekend are emblematic of the RNC's extensive grassroots efforts to mobilize voters and ensure a Republican victory,"
Nolley said to NSJ.
