Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri is laying some of the blame for the outcome of the 2022 midterms at the feet of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Hawley is certainly not the first person to do this. Lots of people are blaming McConnell for not giving enough funding to certain campaigns and for questioning the quality of certain candidates.
Conservative voters are happy that the GOP retook the House, but in a year like this many feel that Republicans severely underperformed in Senate races.
Sen. Hawley Blames Poor Midterm Outcome On McConnell
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is blaming the Republican’s terrible track record during the midterm election on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
During an interview at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest conference, Hawley explained how several Republicans, including McConnell, have enabled the Biden Administration’s progressive agenda.
“Listen, if you look at the last just two years in the Senate: Cave to Big Pharma on insulin. Cave to Chuck Schumer on gun control. Cave to the radical left on the climate agenda. That’s the so-called infrastructure bill,” Hawley said.
Eighteen Senate Republicans voted to advance the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill, which contains billions of dollars earmarked for Democrats’ woke agenda such as LGBTQ museums and antiracist institutions.
“That’s a terrible record. And then they wonder, Why didn’t we do better in the midterms? Gee, why, I don’t know,” Hawley questioned.
The Missouri senator was one of about 10 Senate Republicans to oppose McConnell’s bid to continue serving as the Senate Minority Leader.
Lots of conservatives are ready for a change in leadership.

The Republican Party has become a circular firing squad. Everything Hawley says is true. The RINO leadership HAS to go, or the base has to Cowboy up and bolt. What good is staying in a RINO-dominated Republican Party? You get screwed 90% of the time, for 10% of the wins.
