Major Republican victories deemed non-newsworthy by the Big Media

by WorldTribune Staff, November 11, 2022

Were the 2022 midterm elections really the disaster for Republicans that Big Media and assorted never-Trumpers and RINOs make it out to be?

Was Tuesday’s vote somehow an approval of Joe Biden’s failing presidency?

Several GOP victories, which Big Media has chosen to ignore, indicate otherwise. Americans who rely on corporate media will miss the news.

State boards of education/school boards

The GOP “fared very well in a number of key states across the country,” Shawn Fleetwood noted in a Nov. 9 analysis for The Federalist.

Conservative grassroots activists throughout the nation successfully elected “parents first” candidates to their local school boards. In Michigan, four candidates backed by the 1776 Project PAC are projected to give conservatives control of the Brandywine Board of Education. The parental rights group also saw similar success in Maryland, where the group is forecasting that three of their candidates will successfully flip the Carroll County school board from Democrat to Republican.

Additional states that saw major conservative local school board victories on Tuesday include Florida and North Carolina.

In Florida, all six of the school board candidates endorsed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis prevailed on Tuesday. DeSantis had previously endorsed 24 candidates in school board races, all of whom won.

In North Carolina, GOP candidates won a clean sweep of four seats on the New Hanover County Board of Education.

State judicial elections

Republicans swept the races for all three seats for the state Supreme Court in Ohio by wide margins, allowing conservatives to likely have a 4-3 majority.

In North Carolina, the GOP flipped the two seats up for election on Tuesday. The projected wins will now give Republicans a 5-2 majority on the state’s high court beginning next year. Earlier this year, the then-Democrat-controlled court struck down two state constitutional amendments previously adopted by state voters in 2018, with the ruling coalition claiming, as National Review reported, that “the two houses of the state legislature that proposed them included districts that were racially gerrymandered.”

Also in North Carolina, in addition to the state Supreme Court, all four GOP judges running for seats on the North Carolina Court of Appeals were poised to defeat their Democrat opponents.

State legislatures

Florida Republicans expanded their numbers in the state legislature, where they will hold super-majorities in both the House and Senate starting next year.

In Ohio, Republicans maintained their veto-proof majorities in both houses of the state legislature.

Republicans are also projected to increase their majorities in the North Carolina state legislature this year, giving the GOP a super-majority in the Senate and one vote shy of a super-majority in the House.

“The results are significant given that the state’s Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper has regularly vetoed legislation backed by conservatives, such as election integrity and pro-life initiatives,” Fleetwood noted.

Jan. 6 Committee member loses

Virginia Democrat Rep. Elaine Luria, a sitting member of the House’s infamous Jan. 6 Committee, lost her re-election bid to Republican Jennifer Kiggans in the state’s 2nd Congressional District. Luria is one of four members of the so-called Select Committee not returning to Congress next year, along with Democrat Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Florida and GOP Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.

While Murphy and Kinzinger both opted not to run for reelection this cycle, Cheney suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of now Congresswoman-elect Harriet Hageman during Wyoming’s Republican primaries earlier this year.
