A big red tide is brewing, but with the 2022 midterm elections entering their last two-month race, Republicans fear losing their partisan leadership.

This is despite Democrats facing a weak presidential standing, deep pessimism from voters, and historical weight.

The changing political landscape comes on the heels of President Joe Biden's string of legislative victories on climate, health care and gun violence, as voters struggle to expand their appeal on Donald Trump's electoral battlefield.

But nothing dampens Republicans' momentum more than the Supreme Court's decision to end abortion protections, which sparked a backlash even in hot states this summer.

But the legitimate victory achieved by former President Donald Trump raised his image during his election campaign in favor of the elected. On Monday, a federal judge granted the FBI's request that a private master examine documents seized from his Florida home, and also temporarily halted the Justice Department's use of the documents for investigative purposes.

Biden launched a campaign to spur Democrats on at the start of a crucial moment before the midterm elections, as he visited the swing states of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to celebrate Labor Day with union members he hopes will vote for his party in November. .

In an effort to further erode Biden's reputation, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee criticized the Treasury Department for refusing requests to release suspicious bank data related to Hunter Biden and others, according to a report. press release.

Kentucky Representative James Comer accused the department of trying to "whitewash the Biden family and possibly conceal information that Joe Biden has benefited financially from his family's business dealings."

The governor's powers are becoming more visible to Americans as states make decisions after the federal government is formed.

In November, 36 states will hold gubernatorial elections that, while often more expensive than Senate races, are likely to have a more direct impact on the political landscape and provide a springboard for more ambitious candidates, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. .

In the election season, Republicans control 20 competing state governorships, compared to 16 Democrats. But several major battlefield races feature Democrats elected in the "blue wave" of 2018, seeking a second term. Read more about this fall's races:

Finally, some Democrats seem to care more about the 2024 election than the midterms. The rejection of the election won Republican primaries across the country, including in a state that will be at the center of the 2024 presidential election.

Secretaries of State, and their state's top election officials, have been at the forefront of dispelling false allegations about voter fraud in 2020. Unexpected new concessions have helped State Department candidates attract more money and attention in this cycle, some Democrats say. He worries that the party is not focusing enough on this race and its ramifications for the 2024 presidential election, if the candidate who wins that seat matters to the outcome of the statewide election.

    Dr. Muhammed Oz (Republican) vs. John Fetterman (Democrat).

    The race will replace retired Republican Senator Pat Tommy.

    Dr. Mehmet Oz won the Republican primary in the US Senate in Pennsylvania after days of counting. The famous heart surgeon will face Democratic Governor John Fetterman in November. Fetterman got off the road while recovering from a stroke and serious heart disease. Democrats see this race, to replace Republican Senator Pat Toomey, who is retiring for two terms, as the best chance of winning a seat in the Senate race. Fetterman's ads criticized outsourcing, factory closures, rising costs, and lower wages, saying that "decisions are made by people who don't know us." On the other hand, the GNP is trying to link Fetterman with the more liberal members of his party and the Biden administration.

    Senator Raphael Warnock (Democrat) vs. Herschel Walker (Republican)

    Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (Democrat) – Adam Laxalt (R).

    Adam Laxalt, the former state attorney general who has admitted lying about the 2020 election, has won the Republican nomination for a general seat in the Nevada Senate, starting what could be a difficult and costly race against Catherine Cortez Masto. , one of them. Democrats are most at risk in a divided Senate. Republicans view the race as their best chance to win a Senate seat and regain their majority, but they also see long-term indications that Nevada is back on the right track after rejecting every GOP presidential candidate since 2004.

    Trump-backed Blake Masters has emerged as the Republican candidate. The 35-year-old frontrunner has spent most of his career working with billionaire Peter Thiel, who funded his campaign.

    10. Chris Murphy: Connecticut senators are at the center of negotiations over new gun laws after the mass shooting at a school in Ovaldi, Texas. He was also an outspoken voice in liberal politics, but he was by no means a strict theorist. "He seems to understand that politics is the art of doing what is possible, not merely pointing out the impossible and blaming opposition," political analyst Stu Rothenberg wrote in an article earlier this month speculating on Murphy's future. Murphy doesn't get as much attention as a potential 2024 candidate, but I think it would be interesting if he decides to run.

There is a pattern of southern governors (Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter) running for the White House and winning. As the New York Times noted in a story late last year, Cooper has a note that could appeal to core Democratic voters: He helped repeal a law on his birth certificate that required people in government-run facilities to use gender-appropriate restrooms. . It also issued an executive order on paid and carbon-neutral parental leave. Cooper's biggest problem in the 2024 race? Not yet known nationwide. at all

    8. Cory Booker: The 2020 New Jersey Senator's presidential campaign has never been successful. But much of what made Booker so interesting for the role in 2020 remains true: a charismatic, well-spoken politician with a healthy dose of star power. Plus, having run for the Democratic nomination once and lost, he'll probably be wiser when he's running for the second time. Of course, Poker's recent failed attempts at the question "Why? Which Poker must answer to gain momentum in the next race."

    7. Amy Klobuchar: Unlike Booker, the Minnesota senator had a moment in the 2020 race. In the days leading up to the New Hampshire primary, she looked like the running mate and had little chance of winning. He came in third behind Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg. Less than a month later, he withdrew from the race and endorsed Biden. The way he ran, and the way he finished the campaign, earned Klobuchar a credit that could come in handy if he races again in 2024.

    6. Elizabeth Warren: I was amazed in April when Warren hit the pages of the New York Times with an op-ed titled "Democrats Can Avoid Disaster in November." The argument is that Democrats need to agree on as much of their agenda as possible before November, and voters will reward them for doing so. Yes, it is doubtful. The editorial included the following lines: "Despite the pandemic relief, infrastructure investments, and historic Supreme Court confirmation of Ketanji Brown-Jackson, we have promised more, and voters remember those promises." Fabulous! This kind of language puts Warren in a position to say "I told you so" if, as expected, the Democrats are defeated in the 2022 election. And it could serve as a springboard for a White House runoff.

    6. Ex ambasciatore Nikki Haley: puoi contare su una mano il numero di incaricati Trump di alto profilo che hanno lasciato l'amministrazione in buoni rapporti con l'ex presidente. Haley, l'ex ambasciatore degli Stati Uniti presso le Nazioni Unite, è una di queste. "Ha fatto un lavoro fantastico e abbiamo fatto un lavoro fantastico insieme", ha detto Trump quando Haley se ne è andata nel 2018. "Abbiamo risolto molti problemi e stiamo risolvendo molti problemi". Ma Haley ha anche pubblicamente ribaltato Trump; she was openly critical of him in the aftermath of the January 6 riot at the US Capitol before falling in line behind him once it became clear that the party's base didn't view January 6 as disqualifying for the former president.

But, Haley has also publicly flip-flopped on Trump; she was openly critical of him in the aftermath of the January 6 riot at the US Capitol before falling in line behind him once it became clear that the party's base didn't view January 6 as disqualifying for the former president.

    5. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas: Don't forget that the Texas senator was the runner-up to Trump in the 2016 presidential race. And that, after a rocky relationship with Trump during the fall of 2016, Cruz has gone out of his way to make nice with the man who suggested his father might have been involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Cruz's stronger-than-expected 2016 run should not be discounted — he has organizations in early states and a national fundraising base that is unmatched by those below him on this list.

    4. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina: Like a number of people on this list, it's hard to imagine the South Carolina Senator running for president if Trump is in the field. (Scott is on record as saying he would back a Trump 2024 campaign.) But, in a Trump-less field, Scott is deeply intriguing: He is the first Black senator elected from the Deep South since Reconstruction and the first Black Republican to serve in the Senate since 1979. He's built a reliably conservative (and pro Trump) record during his nine years in the Senate while showing a willingness to work across the aisle when possible. If Republicans decide they need a new face to lead their party, Scott is at the front of that line.

    3. Former Vice President Mike Pence: I really struggled on where the former vice president belonged on this list. On the one hand, he has been disowned by Trump (and the former president's loyalists) for refusing to overturn the 2020 electoral college results. On the other, Pence has tons of residual name identification from his four years as vice president and retains a solid base of support among religious conservatives. The New York Times reported last month that Pence is trying to edge away from Trump as he considers running in 2024. That's going to be a very delicate dance.

    2. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis: There's a clear gap between the Florida governor and the rest of the Republican field not named "Donald Trump." DeSantis even managed to beat out the former President in a straw poll conducted at a Colorado conservative political conference over the weekend. DeSantis can't take his eye off the ball — he is running for a second term this fall — but he has, to date, very effectively used his day job as a way to boost his national profile.

    1. Former President Donald Trump: If you want to find cracks in the Trump foundation, you can do it; his endorsed candidates in governor's races in places like Georgia, Nebraska and Idaho lost primaries earlier this year. But, that would miss the forest for the trees. The simple fact is that Trump remains the prime mover in Republican Party politics. If he runs — and I absolutely believe he will — he starts in a top tier all his own. The nomination is quite clearly his to lose — which doesn't mean he can't lose it.
