Republicans Blame Donald Trump And Mitch McConnell Over Midterm Poor Performance

Critics of former President Donald Trump blamed him for the poor showing while other Republicans faulted their Senate leader, Mitch McConnell.

The White House, meanwhile, made its strongest indication yet that President Joe Biden will run for re-election.

The race for the US House of Representatives remains uncalled.

Republicans are still favoured to win the lower chamber of Congress which would severely hamper President Joe Biden’s plans but their likely majority is shrinking as votes continue to be counted.

History suggests the party controlling the White House usually loses seats in a midterm election, and Democrats’ performance this year is considered the best for a sitting party in at least 20 years.

Over the weekend, US networks projected that Democrats had held two Senate seats in Arizona and Nevada, retaining control of the upper chamber.

“This is the third election in a row that Trump has cost us the result,” Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan, a long-time critic of the ex-president, told CNN on Sunday.

“He said we would be tired of winning. Well I’m tired of losing.”
