What's On Our Mind ...
100 Days, 2022 Election, Assault Ban
President Joe Biden’s ultimate success — and our country’s — hinges on Congress. He needs a strong Democratic majority in the House and Senate to ensure that he can turn his plans into action.
Today, the Democrats have the slimmest majority in the House since the 1880s with only six seats. The Senate is evenly split. Vice President Kamala Harris can cast the tie-breaking vote, but her opportunity is limited because most bills are subject to the filibuster.
We knew our political battle was not over when Biden won the White House. Now we must work to shore up his support in Congress.
The loss of any Congressional seat will be detrimental. Nearly two dozen JAC candidates won in 2020 with single digit percentages. Several even won by less than two percent. They are already being targeted by the GOP with negative ad campaigns. They will be facing an uphill battle to win re-election in 2022.
