2022 is the election cycle when we learned that the Republican Leader of the Senate would prefer to be in the minority than have Republicans who don’t support him in the majority.  

It is the election cycle when the red wave was stopped by a combination of issue-less campaigns, feckless leaders, archaic campaigning and an overwhelming flood of far left money that gave Democrat candidates massive spending advantages.

And it is the election cycle where Democrat governors who played a major role in influencing their states voting procedures in 2020 were returned to office in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania with a likely Democrat pick-up in Arizona, while Republicans picked up the governorship in North Carolina and Nevada.  

GOP election integrity efforts proved fruitless in Arizona as massive calculated voter suppression targeted at the most GOP leaning precincts led to ballot machines not working until afternoon with voters leaving in frustration.  In spite of a bevy of observers providing evidence, the state court required that the election be certified in order for it to be challenged and then ruled that the burden of proof lay on the challengers that not only was their de facto suppression, but without the power of subpoena, they have to prove that it was intentional suppression, a near impossible standard.

The election of a narrow GOP majority in the U.S. House of Representatives should provide the ability to block most overtly evil actions by the Biden administration, and promises to provide oversight into some of the most egregious violations of civil liberties along with the normal spotlighting of administrative spending malfeasance.  

Americans for Limited Government named the elections of 2022 the second most impactful story, because ultimately, they are a precursor to the 2024 battle for the presidency and the split Congress should end most of the Biden legislative agenda. If the House Republicans hang together.  The story of 2023 will be whether Republicans splinter so badly that the Democrats have effective control of the House, but that is for next year.
