On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
Laura Loomer Announces 2022 Congressional Campaign
Loomer will run for Congress in 2022.
Former Big League Politics investigative journalist and social media personality Laura Loomer announced her 2022 congressional campaign on Wednesday, speaking at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar and longtime Donald Trump advisor Roger Stone were present at Loomer’s campaign announcement.
Loomer ran in 2020 in Florida’s 21st Congressional district, which contains President Trump’s world famous Mar-a-Lago resort which is now his permanent address. With an upcoming congressional redistricting in Florida, Loomer clarified that she’s waiting for the final results of the redistricting measure before running for a specific district. The parameters of congressional districts in Florida are yet to be determined. Florida stands to gain two congressional seats from the 2020 census, in a testament to the state’s population growth, conservative governance, and embrace of pro-middle class policies.
Loomer received 40% of the vote in her 2020 challenge against Democrat Lois Frankel, a strong performance in the D +9 21st district. If Republicans build momentum as the opposition party coming into the midterms, Loomer’s second shot at Congress could easily lead to a victory.
Loomer is one of the most censored individuals on the internet, having been banned from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube a short time after the first wave of social media censorship purges targeted Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones. Twitter refused to allow Loomer a voice on the platform as the Republican nominee for Congress in her district in 2020, in a move that arguably amounts to an in-kind campaign contribution to the Democrat she was facing. Loomer predicted that President Trump would ultimately be purged from Big Tech monopoly platforms in 2018, a prediction which proved accurate.
Loomer’s message may rest on the growing strength of alternative social media platforms. Having previously received Donald Trump’s endorsement, she could be the next upcoming Trump Republican to enter the halls of Congress.
