“The GOP won all 27 toss up seats. And the Dems failed to flip even ONE house seat nationwide.”
Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been watching her majority shrink significantly as results from the 2020 election continue to come in. And now there is more bad news for her as Republicans flip yet another House seat, this time yet another one in California.
Republicans have picked up their 11th seat overall in the U.S. House and the third seat in California, as Republican David Valadao reclaimed the seat he lost in the farm belt two years ago.
The former congressman defeated Democratic Rep. TJ Cox, who ousted Valadao in the 21st Congressional District two years ago by 862 votes.
. . . . On paper, the 21st District looks like it should be a Democratic stronghold: The party holds a nearly 17-point registration edge. But California’s agricultural centers have long been known for Republican residents who vote reliably and Democrats who often do not.
The NRCC can be excused, I think, for a little bit of gloating.
Finally! Official welcome back and that’s our 13th flip! https://t.co/CVhJ3rra8G

Republicans really have done remarkably well in House races across the country. With a likely win in #CA25, the GOP will have won all 27 races deemed “toss ups.”
✅GOP flips CA 21 today.
✅GOP flips 13 House seats to date.
✅GOP flips House seats in blue NY & CA.
✅GOP wins ALL 27 “toss-up” House races.
= A RED WAVE swept the country.
Except in KEY swing states where tens of thousands ONLY voted for Biden❓No one is buying it.

Let that sink in: instead of the eagerly anticipated “blue wave,” Democrats failed to flip even one House seat.
At least Pelosi still has the majority, barely, and she has those fancy freezers stuffed full of expensive ice cream to get her through what can only be a crushing disappointment.DONATE
