Democrats Face Pressure as THREE House Members Announce Retirement

( – Democrats hold their slimmest majority in the House in decades, and if history holds consistent, they could face massive losses in the upcoming 2020 midterm elections. Now, three more Democratic House members have recently announced their retirement, which might spell bad news for the party’s already fragile majority.

On Monday, December 20, Representatives Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), and Albio Sires (D-NJ) all announced their departure from national politics. Their announcements bring the total number of Democrat retirements in the House to 23 and counting.

Republican Communications Director Calvin Moore recently noted that Democrats might set a “new land speed record” through the haste of their departure. “But who can blame them?” he continued. According to him, the Democrats are watching their agenda crash and burn in real-time, indicating their current rule in both Congressional chambers is coming to a rapid end.

National Republican Congressional Committee Spokesperson Mike Berg echoed that observation, adding the “nightmare” confronting House Democrats keeps worsening. He said American voters don’t support Democratic efforts to raise taxes, defund the police, and keep the nation’s borders open.

With moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) effectively killing the party’s beloved Build Back Better social infrastructure plan, hoards of migrants flooding across the nation’s southern border, and rising inflation, it appears the Democrats could find themselves consumed by a massive red wave in 2022.

What are your thoughts? Do you think the Republicans can retake the House and Senate in 2022?
