Chuck Schumer is the current Senate Majority Leader.
But Mitch McConnell hopes to change that in November.
And Chuck Schumer heard Mitch McConnell say four words that will keep him up late at night.
The Midterm elections are just around the corner.
And the battle for control of the U.S. Senate is heating up in several states across the country.
The Senate is currently split 50/50, with Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote.
With Joe Biden’s Presidency in free fall mode, Democrats are facing a potential bloodbath at the ballot box in November.
During a recent interview with Fox News, Mitch McConnell discussed the upcoming Midterm elections and how he expected it to go for the GOP.
McConnell is confident Republicans will retake both branches of Congress because of Joe Biden’s “incompetence.”
“His policies have not worked, beginning with the precipitous and ill-advised withdrawal from Afghanistan, which became kind of a metaphor for the incompetence that’s been on full display during this administration,” McConnell said.
“None of the policies they have pursued have worked out well,” he added.
“The economy, the precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the domestic energy issue we’ve already been discussing, crime, problems in public education – this administration has really got their hands full, and I think they’re headed toward a pretty good beating in the fall election,” he continued.
If Republicans take back Congress, McConnell offered his opinion on how the Party would stop Joe Biden from further destroying the country.
“Obviously, we’ll have to work with the administration to see what we can agree on,” he remarked.
“Biden ran as a moderate – if I’m the Majority Leader in the Senate and Kevin McCarthy is the Speaker in the House, we’ll make sure Joe Biden is a moderate,” he concluded.
Joe Biden’s radical agenda would grind to a halt if the GOP controls Congress next year, as judges and other potential Presidential nominees could be blocked.
Biden would be able to do little to nothing during the last two years of his term with Republicans shutting down his agenda in Congress.
McConnell is usually reserved in making predictions.
So if he believes the Democrats are in for a “pretty good beating,” then he must really expect to take back the Senate.
For Schumer to remain in power, he can’t lose a single Senate seat.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s failed Presidency is making it virtually impossible for Democrats to flip any Republican seats this fall.
In places like Nevada, Arizona, and Georgia, vulnerable Democrats are facing re-election in closely contested races.
Joe Biden’s approval is at rock bottom in every one of these states, and it’s likely to drop even further before November.
Senate Democrats will likely pay a severe price for Biden’s disastrous Presidency.
And Mitch McConnell will likely have the upper hand on Chuck Schumer after November.
