Midterm elections 2022: Republicans still waiting on House results as Trump pitches for 2024 – live | US politics

Date:

The GOP only needs to win one of ten House races not called to get a majority – and it’s possible that Lauren Boebert will give them that win.

A right-wing lawmaker known for her extreme rhetoric — she has denounced the constitutional separation of church and state and made Islamophobic remarks — Boebert has faced an unexpectedly tight challenge from the Democratic Party. Adam Frich in her right quarter. She currently leads him by more than 1,000 votes, after a lengthy counting process in which Frisch has occasionally taken the lead.

There are between 4,000 and 6,000 votes left to count, and with the margins so narrow, Colorado Public Radio reports that both campaigns are in a hurry to reach out to voters to resolve issues with their ballots, hoping that the outreach will give them a crucial advantage.

But even if Boebert loses, Republicans have other chances of winning in the lower chamber of Congress. As this table in the New York Times makes clear, their candidates are currently leading in three California districts that could also win them the majority.

Key events

Add the Murdoch family to the list of one-time Donald Trump supporters who have soured his brand.

The New York Post, owned by Murdoch, is known for its startling headlines and gave an absolutely brutal treatment to Trump’s announcement of his presidential run last night:

Evidence has emerged in the past week that the conservative media moguls are not in favor of Trump returning to the campaign trail, while some Murdoch family members support the Florida governor Ron DeSantis instead of.

Donald Trump’s announcement of another presidential run is proving to be about as divisive as expected – including for Republicans. Here’s what a former White House chief of staff thought of Trump’s announcement, as reported by Martin Pengelly:

Donald Trump’s announcement of a third consecutive presidential nomination is bad for the Republican party because he is the only Republican who could lose in 2024, Trump’s own former White House chief of staff said Tuesday night.

Asked on CNN if he thought Trump’s Mar-a-Lago announcement was good for the Republican party, Mick Mulvaney said, “No, I don’t. I think he’s the only Republican who can lose.”

The former South Carolina congressman was Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget and then his third chief of staff, serving in an acting capacity between 2018 and 2020. He then became the US special envoy to Northern Ireland.

House balance of power in the air as America digests Trump’s return

Good morning, blog readers about American politics. Believe it or not, we still don’t know which party will lead the House of Representatives for the next two years, but chances are it will be the Republicans. They are one seat away from taking back the majority in the chamber, and it’s possible that today’s vote count would end in one of the excellent races heading their way. We’ll let you know as soon as that happens. In the meantime, expect to hear even more than usual about it Donald Trump — last night he made his much-anticipated announcement of a new White House candidacy in 2024.

Here’s what else is happening today:

  • The Senate will vote to introduce a bill codifying the ability for same-sex couples to marry, in response to signals from the conservative-led Supreme Court that they could revisit their precedent for establishing the right.

  • Mike Pence will appear on a CNN event tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern time, where he’s bound to get questions about his fraught relationship with Trump and whether the former vice president plans to run for the White House in 2024.

  • George W. Bush was expected to interview Volodymyr Zelensky at 9 a.m. Eastern time, but the Ukrainian president’s participation is now tentative due to the Russian missile strike on the country on Tuesday.
