Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: DeSantis Stars; Pelosi Exceeds; Trump Irrelevant

Posted on November 9, 2022
Ron DeSantis, Governor of Florida is now “The Man” in the Republican Party. He won very big in a very big state. The man has political skills and the inside track to be the Republican Nominee in 2024.

Nancy Pelosi held the line in what very well could have been a “wave election.” She got resources into the races where they could do the most good. She employed her tried and true political maxims: “Don’t agonize, organize. Own the ground. Get the vote out.”

Donald Trump continues to diminish himself and slips inexorably into pitiful insignificance.

The “Midterms” did the job they were designed to do. Namely, remind the Party in Power that they are temporary custodians of the Peoples Business. The people make their point by sending members of the majority back into the private sector to make a living, if they can, by performing actual work.

  1. Nancy Pelosi, a political leader like no other, speaks to the
    House of Representatives and announces she will not run
    for a leadership position in the upcoming Congress.

    Nancy spoke to the entire House as friends and colleagues and
    was received by all in that spirit.

    Pelosi will remain in the House but not in Leadership.
