After a spending spree in the Texas Senate race, Democrat Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke lost to incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Democrats dropped a cool $80 million on the O’Rourke campaign – some to fund the migrant caravan careening towards the Southern border – only to see him lose, as expected, in historically red Texas.
Cruz won 51.3 percent of the vote, while O’Rourke won 48.1 percent.
Democrats spend a record $22.5 billion on the 2018 midterm election cycle.
Big League Politics reported:
The Democrats have dropped a record-breaking amount of cash on the midterm elections, according to an OpenSecrets report.
“While Republican candidates are raising funds at record levels, the huge uptick in spending is driven primarily by unprecedented Democratic fundraising,” the report said. “Democratic candidates are projected to spend more than $2.5 billion this cycle, while Republicans are expected to spend approximately $2.2 billion.”
In total, the Center for Responsive Politics predicts that more than $5.2 billion will be spent this election cycle. That will make 2018 the most expensive midterm in history – by a huge margin.
The previous record for midterm spending, adjusted for inflation, was $4.2 billion.
“The overall estimated cost of the 2018 election would represent a 35 percent increase over the 2014 cycle in nominal dollars, the largest increase in at least two decades,” the report said.
At the time of this publication, Republicans are poised to keep control of the U.S. Senate, and potentially gain seats.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
