Democrats may have control of both the House and Senate, but Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL) does not think they’ll be in power for long.
In a new interview with AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Moore expressed his belief that the Democratic agenda combined with the Joe Biden being “nowhere to be found” will lead to “tremendous wins” for Republicans in 2022.
“Obama lost slightly above 50 seats, I think, in his first midterm election,” Moore said. “Clinton lost around 60, I believe — a little over 60. I haven’t done the math. But I tell you this — Joe Biden is nowhere to be found up here. If we as the American people sit back and say, ‘What has the administration done for the American people to help them,’ you can’t name a single thing. Every single policy, every single executive order, everything the Democrats are doing on the Hill are anti-American family. They’re anti-American taxpayer. They’re anti-American.”
“And so, the voters are going to wake up,” the freshman congressman added. “But I think it will be a tremendous landslide for the Republicans in the midterms. We didn’t lose a single seat down the ballot in Congress. We gained ground. We held the 50 in the Senate. We thought we were going to lose that. We gained some governors around the country. The Republican Party is making a great comeback. The only thing was at the top of the ballot, and that was an anomaly. Really strange how that happened.”
This comes days after Moore penned an oped for The Montgomery Advisor in which he said he was “looking forward to preserving America first policies Trump championed.”
He went on to attack Biden for shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline permit, costing Americans countless jobs.
“With the stroke of a pen, President Biden destroyed thousands of jobs on his first day in office by revoking the Keystone XL Pipeline permit,” he wrote. “This severely misguided decision put more Americans out of work during a global pandemic and deepened our energy dependence on Russia and the Middle East.”
“In comparison, President Trump tried advancing the construction of the $9 billion, 1,200-mile pipeline during his time in office,” Moore added. “What’s the difference? Putting America first.”
Judging by what he’s had to say so far, this freshman congressman may be one to watch!
