GOP’s National Supermajority Will Help Hold Their Congressional Majorities

The dismal TV drones are missing something important in handicapping the midterms.

They obsess about how narrow are the GOP congressional majorities without considering the supermajorities Republicans enjoy in state houses and governors’ mansions across the country.

That’s called political infrastructure and it matters.

Local political officials and operatives have credibility with voters and thus turnout capacity that can’t be bought with Michael Bloomberg’s millions.

Federal races are not national elections. They’re local ones.

Just as local races can be federalized so can federal races be localized.

Popular Republican governors with Republican legislative majorities matter too.

That’s good news for key Senate and House races in Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas

The state and local Republicans in these states are popular because they’ve made choices in advance of economic liberty that have improved the vitality of life for their constituents, as a report earlier this year by the American Legislative Exchange Council found.

It’s not complicated.

I suspect voters in these states may elect to continue to keep it simple on November 6th by sticking with what’s working.
