Jesse Watters, a Fox News presenter, chastised US President Donald Trump and Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday over their apparent failure to properly allocate funds from their massive campaign war chests ahead of the midterm elections.
Despite high inflation and increasing crime, Republicans missed expectations in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
“McConnell spent close to $400 million on these Senate candidates. I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes but that is a lot of money and we didn’t pick up a single seat? So, either some of these candidates are garbage or the money is not being well-spent. But Trump sitting on a massive war chest in Mar-a-Lago, where did that money go? We don’t know.” Watters complained.
Republican candidates Adam Laxalt and Blake Masters are running in tight races against Democratic Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada and Mark Kelly of Arizona, with final results expected soon.
Former NFL running back and Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker will now face Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia in a runoff on Dec. 6 after neither were able to pull in more than 50 percent of the vote in the first round of voting.
Dr. Mehmet Oz was defeated in the election to replace retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey by Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania.
Former President Donald Trump vocally backed Oz, who defeated Dave McCormick in the GOP primary election by only 972 votes.
According to the Capital Sun, McConnell’s PAC spent $28 million in support of Laxalt. According to Fox News, the Senate Leadership Fund withdrew $8 million in spending after Masters won the Arizona primary.
