President Trump took to his favorite medium, Truth Social, to share some brief insight into his thoughts about the rapidly-developing results from the 2022 midterm elections.

“While in certain ways yesterday’s election was somewhat disappointing, from my personal standpoint it was a very big victory – 219 WINS and 16 Losses in the General – Who has ever done better than that?” he wrote.

While a small handful of races didn’t quite go the way that Republican voters had hoped, overall, the midterms were a very big night for President Trump’s America First candidates, who have all but regained control of the House and are poised to take the Senate if a few Senate races pan out positively for the GOP.

Per Fox News, Republicans have netted 204 Senate seats so far to Democrats’ 176, and the momentum is largely behind the GOP. U.S. Senate nominee for Arizona, Blake Masters, will likely win his seat – although the race hasn’t been called yet – and Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker will be headed to a runoff election against incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., via the Associated Press.

Former Nevada Attorney General and U.S. GOP Senate nominee Adam Laxalt is also likely to win his race, which would be good news for the Republican Party.

Last night during an election night appearance at Mar-a-Lago, Trump joked, “Wouldn’t that be funny if we were better [on] the general election that in the nominations?”

Some big GOP victories from Tuesday’s election include:

  • Reelection: Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.,
  • Reelection: Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,
  • Election: Senator-elect JD Vance, R-Ohio,
  • Reelection: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.,
  • Reelection: Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas,
  • Reelection: Attorney General Ken Paxton (R),
  • Election: Congresswoman-elect Harriet Hageman, R-Wyo.,
  • Election: Senator-elect Ted Budd, R-N.C.,

Further, Kellyanne Conway shared the results of a Fox News voter analysis on Twitter, indicating a seismic nationwide swing toward the GOP. According to Conway’s takeaways from the poll, there was a 12-point swing toward the GOP among white suburban women, a 15-point swing among Black voters toward the GOP, and a 10-point swing toward the GOP among Hispanic voters.

Additionally, wildly popular Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake is expected to take the lead in her race today, as she continues to dominate Election Day ballot drops in the Grand Canyon State.
