When Trump lost the presidential election and egotistically inserted himself into the Georgia US Senate runoffs, ensuring a defeat, there was one ray of hope. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Leader Kevin McCarthy and Tom Emmer, the head of the Republican House campaign arm, led the GOP to a victory that cut Nancy Pelosi’s majority to single digits.
Despite Trump, Republicans have a fighting chance to win for the American people, thanks to McConnell’s Fabian methods in the Senate and the tight numbers in the House. McCarthy has just made that more likely, as a Democrat dropped her challenge to a GOP freshman this week as a result of his pressure.

“Democrat Rita Hart has officially dropped her election challenge to Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks in Iowa, just as Republicans ramped up their public relations drive against a possible election ‘steal,’” according to FNC. In November, Hart was formally defeated by Miller-Meeks in Iowa’s Second Congressional District by just six votes. She had, however, lodged a formal election contest with the House of Representatives, saying she would have won a recount that included 22 ballots that were left out of the final tally. But, in the face of a growing GOP-led effort to force Democrats to recognize election results, Hart formally declared Wednesday that she would no longer seek to reverse the election.”
“I have decided to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration after several conversations with people I trust about the future of this contest,” Hart said in a statement Wednesday. “My goal has been to ensure that the voices of Iowans who followed the law are not silenced after Election Day and during this process. I’m upset that some Iowans’ votes would be disregarded due to no fault of their own. The work to avoid it from happening again will continue after this campaign.”
Hart’s announcement coincided with McCarthy’s visit to Iowa, where he demanded an end to the squabble, alleging that the Democrats were attempting to snatch the election from Iowans. McCarthy said, “It’s the people’s home, not Pelosi’s house.”

“Despite our best efforts to ensure that every vote is counted, the fact is that the poisonous campaign of political misinformation waged against this constitutional review of the closest congressional election in a century has effectively silenced Iowans’ voices,” Hart concluded. “The fact that the truth has not prevailed is a shame on our democracy, and my hope for the future is a return to decency and civility.” I was beaten fairly and squarely, and I don’t like it.
Miller-Meeks said earlier Wednesday at the event with McCarthy, “People should be outraged.” “… Why are six members of a committee willing to reverse an election if six votes aren’t enough to secure an election?” Yeah, that’s it. The House of Representatives formally agreed with her.
“Without a candidate, there is no longer a contest, and the Committee will, as a result, propose that the whole House dispose of the contest and adopt a dismissal resolution reported out by the Committee,” said committee chairwoman Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-CA.
