Gowdy: ‘Republicans Struggle to Select the Right Candidate and Secure Election Victories’

via Fox News

Rep. Trey Gowdy argued that Republicans are unable to get better budget deals because they have failed to win key elections.

With Democrats controlling the Senate, White House and a razor thin margin in the House, Republicans have little leverage.

Guest host Rich Edson said, “Let’s start with the budget that’s looking like it’s going to pass eventually in the Senate tonight. Do you think Speaker Johnson, the Republicans, got the best deal here that they could have gotten given that they don’t control the Senate or the White House?”

Gowdy said Republicans only have themselves to blame for this situation, noting they underperformed in the 2022 midterms and lost Senate seats in Georgia in 2021 due to nominating weak candidates who couldn’t win general elections.

He suggested that if Republicans want to see better negotiated budget outcomes, they need to run stronger campaigns and select candidates who can win critical races, thereby gaining more influence over the legislative process.

Gowdy said, “I mean, you know, Speaker Johnson — Speaker McCarthy, I think, got a better deal. Remember, they got rid of him. Rich, all you got to do is look back to November. November midterms where the House Republicans under performed. Look back to Georgia in 2021 two Georgia Republican Senators were defeated. So, if you’re wondering why you’re trying to negotiate against Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden it’s because Republicans can’t pick the right candidate and they can’t win elections.”

He added, “And now the margin is, what, razor thin in the House. They’re on the verge of losing the House. You want to see a bad budget bill? Let the Democrats control the House, the Senate and the White House. They got nobody to blame but themselves, picking wrong candidates, running bad races, and losing winnable elections.”
