(PatriotWise.com) – Former Trump White House advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed Senate Republicans for not supporting Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker in the days leading up to last Tuesday’s runoff election.
Senator Raphael Warnock easily defeated Walker in Tuesday’s runoff, handing the Democrats 51 seats in the Senate.
Appearing on Fox News’s “Hannity” Wednesday evening, Conway accused Senate Republicans of leaving Walker to fend for himself.
Conway also argued that the RNC has to embrace early and mail-in voting, saying “we either adapt or die.”
She then blasted the 49 Republican Senators, demanding to know why all of them weren’t in Georgia campaigning for Walker.
She told Hannity that every Republican in the Senate should have been campaigning for Walker either in person or by other means. Conway argued that having served with Raphael Warnock, the Republican senators would have been able to make the case for why he shouldn’t win reelection.
The Democrat Party’s celebration over winning 51 seats was short-lived, however.
Just days after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer took a victory lap over winning a genuine majority in the chamber, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced that she was registering as an Independent.
Sinema, who has modeled her political career on the “maverick” style of the late Senator John McCain, announced the change on Friday but said she wasn’t planning to caucus with the Republicans.
While the move is not expected to shake up the balance of power in the Senate, it is seen as Sinema’s shot across the bow at the Democrat Party, which has for the last year, been pressuring the Arizona Senator to conform with the far-left goals of the party.
Schumer has agreed to allow Sinema to maintain her committee assignments. But what choice did he have? If he yanked her committee assignments, Schumer would be shooting the Democrats in the head. By keeping her in place, Schumer will retain the 51-seat majority.
