It sounds like the tides are finally turning and the Blue Wave is getting a belated boost in the midterms, at least at the local level, according to new polling. While more House seats are at risk to be flipped Red, essential Senate seats just might end up going to Democrats who are leading in key Senate races in battleground states that Donald Trump lost in 2020. Democrats are also out fundraising their opponents in those same races, a strong indicator that campaign spending can go to barraging the airwaves with campaign ads in the final weeks of their races.
In Georgia, Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock has a 10-point lead over Trump-backed Herschel Walker, 54% to 44%. John Fetterman, thankfully, is similarly leading Mehmet “MEH” Oz in Pennsylvania both in the polls and in fundraising efforts. Democrats are also looking strong in other must-win states such as Arizona, Nevada, and New Hampshire, where the GOP nominees are all Trump-endorsed and polling at least 10 points behind.But Republicans only need a net gain of four seats for House control, and Democrats worry about what that will mean for active Committees, particularly the MAGA-maligned January 6th House Select Committee, which has also boosted Democrats with nearly $100 million in new donations since the hearings began in early June. House Republicans have already been making threats to dismantle the January 6th Committee and have also hinted they would impeach President Joe Biden–on what grounds, no one seems to know.
Midterms are fast approaching. I hope EVERY American woman remembers that House #Democrats passed a bill to protect access to birth control—the vast majority of House #Republicans voted against it.#VoteBlueIn2022 #VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy

Aside from mobilizing voters to the polls in November based on their anger over the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, Democrats need only use footage from the televised January 6th hearings to remind everyone exactly what’s at stake.
