Mike Pence is going on the attack ahead of the 2018 midterms and all signs point to a route for the GOP. If you watch the mainstream media you will think this impossible.
They bend over backward to talk about historical trends that say sitting Presidents get crushed in midterm elections.
They have a point but as Pence explained yesterday to leading GOP lawmakers at the Greenbrier Hotel, past is not always prologue.
“I think you all know what President Trump thinks about conventional wisdom,” Pence said. “We’re going to make history again in 2018, when we re-elect Republican majorities in the House and Senate.”
Then he predicted why the GOP will win the 2018 midterms and he makes a convincing case.
According to NBC:
“If you’re going to say $1,000 is ‘crumbs,’ you live in a different world than I do,” Pence said, adding that the comment shows Pelosi is “out of touch with the American people.”
Correct. The GOP simply needs to run against Pelosi and they are almost guaranteed to at least hold serve.
But then he added the cherry on top which signals a red wave is coming.
“We’ve got an incredible story to tell,” Pence said. “President Trump and I are going to be with you every step of the way in 2018 to tell that story to the American people…. the most accomplished year of the conservative agenda in 30 years. In a very real sense, America is back…Let’s go tell the story.”
