‘The Squad’ Suffers a Surprise Loss – Top Member’s Sister Gets Career-Ending News


Democrats have been dominating certain areas of the country to the point where Republicans have no hope of winning. Deep divisions between the two parties virtually wipe out any hope that one side would support the other in a tight local race.

Leftist Democrat candidates have also been losing some of their influence during local elections despite outsized support from allies currently in office. One of the most influential leftist groups is the “Squad” in Congress. They have maneuvered their way into political power positions that influence the greater Democrat party.

But their influence didn’t hold up in a primary race where one of Squad member’s sister was sent packing. It was a slap in the face of her leftist sibling whose power in politics may be waning.

From Fox News:
Maxine Dexter won the Democratic Primary in Oregon’s 3rd Congressional District on Tuesday, defeating a crowded field of progressives that included the sister of Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal.

Susheela Jayapal, a former county commissioner, was endorsed by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and several members of the far-left “Squad” House Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

The race isn’t one that Republicans would ever consider being in reach. The district covers much of Portland, Oregon, which is reliably blue and unlikely to be won by a Republican in November. Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-1 in the district. Dexter won the primary to replace outgoing Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who had served in Congress since 1996.

With the district reliably secure for Democrats, Blumenauer expressed how he felt about the current political climate in Congress. He believes fractures within the House majority GOP aren’t likely to be resolved which prevents bipartisan action.

“I think, in this circumstance, I can – on the things I care about most – I can have as much or more impact as a civilian,” said Blumenauer, who has been in Congress since 1996. “It’s quite clear the way this Congress started, that there were deep, deep, irreconcilable divisions with my Republican colleagues. And it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better.”

Blumenauer’s retirement won’t upset the status quo in the House with an almost certain win expected from his replacement candidate. What must happen is for Republicans to win more seats to secure a stronger majority and counter the leftists, old and new.
