Chuck Schumer Responds to Keeping Senate Control

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a press conference on Saturday night that the Democrats’ success in retaining control of the U.S. Senate is a “victory” for the American people.

Schumer made the comments after the Fox News Decision desk projected that Democrats will have continued control of the Senate. The projection was made after the Fox News Decision Desk projected that Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez-Masto will keep her seat in Nevada, defeating Republican challenger Adam Laxalt.

In a New York City press conference, Schumer reacted to Democrats keeping control of the Senate.

“With the races now called in Arizona and Nevada, Democrats will have a majority again in the Senate. And I will be the Majority Leader,” Schumer said. “This election is a victory, a victory and a vindication for Democrats, our agenda, and for the America and for the American people.”

Schumer credited Democrats’ “terrific candidates,” “our agenda and our accomplishments,” and the “American people who rejected the anti-democratic, extremist MAGA Republicans” in helping keep the Senate majority.

“Our candidates Catherine Cortez Masto, Mark Kelly, Maggie Hassan and John Fetterman and Raphael Warnock are just fine human beings who really care about people who have the understanding of how to get things done. And those who have been in the Senate have already accomplished great things,” Schumer said.

The Senate majority leader said that American voters “believed in what we got done, and it stood in contrast to the other party.”

After Tuesday’s midterm elections, Biden said he would do “nothing” differently in the next two years of his presidency.

Listing several items as what he sees as accomplishments, Schumer said Saturday that “we got a whole lot of things done.”

Schumer also said that Americans are “not happy with Republican leaders who condoned and even supported this nasty, poisonous rhetoric.”

“I’m making a plea to my Republican colleagues. We can disagree on so many issues. That’s fair. But let’s not have this kind of divisive negativity. Let’s not have the condemnation of viciousness and even violence against poll workers, against so many others. Let us try to come together,” Schumer said.

    The pendulum of time and insanity has swung too far… it’s now clear that the leftista movement of Marxist Socialism has a vise like grip on our gov’t… the only question now is can the alt-left even be dethroned? The tail is waging the dog. I fear we will never see a fair election again until the whole system is reset and constitutional principals are once again the law of the land.
    We have allowed these un-american pigliticians (both parties) to control our youth, our media. and the simple minded into become an army of sheeple.
    Is America the Babylon we read of in the Bible?
    I wouldn’t trust any of the current political hacks to shine my shoes.
    We are in the midst of the downfall of this once great nation. The Middle Easterners call it a death of a thousand cuts.

    Seems Khrushchev had it right…
    “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.” — Nikita Khrushchev

    The only thing I have to look forward to is that God is ultimately in control… His will trumps all.

    Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a press conference on Saturday night that the Democrats’ success in retaining control of the U.S. Senate is a “victory” for the American people. Maybe for his American people but definitely not all Americans. He can’t be trusted.
