Youve probably heard a lot about the supposed blue wave the political elite are predicting for the election cycle. Im confident Republicans will keep control of the House and the Senate, but a different kind of blue wave is currently washing across several states.
Its a blue wave of liberal funding.
A massive flow of money from liberal donors in California and New York is pouring into traditionally Republican states and districts. We first saw this blue wave of cash during the special elections held to replace the Congressmen and Senators who were appointed to the Trump Administration. The most notable was the race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in my old district, the 6th District of Georgia.
This Georgia special election was the most expensive in history. According to The New York Times, the campaigns raised about $28 million with the bulk, $23.6 million going to Ossoff. Of Ossoffs haul, 82 percent was from outside Georgia, and the majority of contributions came from notoriously left-wing states, like California and New York.
This blue wave of cash is happening in Texas, too. Gina Jones, the Democratic challenger to Republican Will Hurd has collected 99 percent of her donations from outside the 23rdDistrict. Similarly, Beto ORourke, the Democrat challenging Senator Ted Cruz was recently profiled by Variety for his various fundraising trips to Hollywood to finance his campaign.

A continuous bombardment of shrill attack ads is going to have the exact opposite of the desired effect.
It won’t work. They did the same thing for What’s His Name and he got even less votes than the previous unknown Donk.
The Dems are infatuated with GA. They obviously have done some research and thought that there can be enough fraud to take the state.
Democrats are racist tards. This is their thought process:
“Georgia? I’ve never seen so many BLACK PEOPLE, why aren’t we winning?”
Slim versus round
Looks like President Trump is going to need to go to almost every state in the Union before November 6.
He has four rallies this coming week.
He can’t do it all.
I am just one small voice without much cash but I am going to put my money where my mouth is now. Soon it will be too late.
""Meg Whitman spent more of her own money on the race than any other political candidate spent on a single election in American history, spending $144 million of her own fortune and $178.5 million in total, including money from donors.""
Whitman could't buy the governors mansion. Same here, all the cash in the world won't help the Democrats, in my opinion of course.☺
Just wow. Ain't multiculturalism/ cultural Marxism just grand?
It’s all based on their belief that Atlanta holds the keys to the state. What they always fail to get is that: (1) Some of the suburban counties around Atlanta are very conservative, (2) Georgia has four other cities os significant size, and (3) Georgia has hundreds of small towns. It is the largest state east of the Mississippi geographically. I would be shocked if this woman won.
I believe you’re right, my opinion also. :^)
Be great to them all shot down...Bad.
and a black communist aka democrat candidate for Florida governor, financially backed by Soros and Steyer, named Andrew Gillum
It amazed me how they though GA would go for Clinton. With all the blacks who live there, many who vote republican too then there was no way GA would go for an old, white woman.
The problem is that the left have so much money and Wall Street who just send money as if it were confetti.
The most interesting thing he said is that he is confident the Republicans will retain control of the House and Senate.
You can guess what party this was for.
Agreed, and Newt knows of what he speaks, I believe he’s right.
You know Newt, some of us tried to warn the GOPe/RNC not to run from Roy Moore. I wonder if any of them can figure out what that reason was today?
It’s not so much the money from the coasts. It’s the disorganized, pathetic, suicidal, environment Conservative candidates find themselves in today.
This Kavanaugh mess isn’t confined to the U. S. Senate. It spreads out across the political spectrum.
McConnell and Grassley allowed this to become a circus. No, I don’t think Kavanaugh is going to be rejected ultimately, but it’s the fog of war, and the little guys on down the line are lost in the news.
Our guys can’t get traction. Everyone is talking about FBI investigations and the like. Why another woman just came forward, and news like that sucking the life blood.
Stand up for our people. Quite allowing the other side to raise these false issues. You ran from Roy Moore and now you’re just shocked that they would try the same think on Kavanaugh that worked on him.
We tried to tell you mother F’rs what was going to happen.
You laughed. You had Republican politicians in Washington making robo calls against Moore. You guys abandoned him, and worse.
Here we are. The Kavanaugh hearings are sucking up all the oxygen in the room, and all you idiots can talk about is the Democrats this, or the Democrats that.
Screw that noise.
The Republican party is a pathetic entity.
Sadly, it’s all we’ve got too, other than Trump who can’t get them to help him either.
I’m pretty sure that the Republicans need 50 votes to confirm Kavanaugh. No 50 votes, no confirmation. On Friday, we only had 48 votes, because Murkowski and Collins insisted on a FBI Investigation. What the Republicans should have done in this scenario?
