Former Republican National Committee communications director Doug Heye says Republicans have a candidate quality problem ‘top to bottom,’ and Democratic pollster Carly Cooperman says abortion helped the Democrats avoid ‘huge losses.’
Patricia Heaton reached out on Thursday to Christians who are “disappointed” about the midterms.
“For those of you who are Christians and who feel disappointed or despairing of the election results, it is a blessing to be reminded that our security does not rest in men or governments, which are finite and will eventually crumble, but in God alone who is ever sustaining,” the “Everybody Loves Raymond” actress tweeted.
The 64-year-old mother of four often posts about faith.
“Good thought for today amidst all the political folderol…” she tweeted on Election Day along with a retweeted Dorothy Day quote that said: “I really only love God as much as I love the person I love the least.”
Heaton also tweeted about voting on Tuesday.
“Happy to report my voting experience in Nashville gets a 10 out of 10!” she wrote.
“Friendly volunteers, extremely organized, made sure everything was done correctly and you could see your voted get counted. Well done!” Heaton added.
A potential red wave turned into a trickle for Republicans on Tuesday amid record high inflation and low approval ratings for President Joe Biden. By Thursday, Democrats still had a good chance to keep control of the Senate and to a lesser extent the House as several key races were still undecided.
Historically, the party of a first-term president usually suffers major setbacks in the first midterm after the presidential election.
