Senator Josh Hawley issued the following statement on the failure of what he termed “Washington Republicanism.”

“Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night. When your ‘agenda’ is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal (‘infrastructure’), and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose.

“What are Republicans actually going to do for working people? How about, to start: tougher tariffs on China, restore American jobs, open up American energy full throttle, 100,000 new cops on the street. Unrig the system.”


  1. In some respects, the Republicans did quite well. They took over a number of state legislatures, for example, and did take the House. Dr. Steve Turley has an excellent youtube (or Rumbler) video on this.
