Chuck Schumer is having a miserable time running the Senate.
Democrats are constantly fighting over the Biden agenda.
And he just suffered a massive defeat when he got this surprising news.
Chuck Schumer is in control of the Senate with a razor-thin margin.
Democrats have 50 seats and he’s only in charge because Kamala Harris breaks ties as Vice President.
Biden’s disastrous regime is threatening to drag down Senate Democrats.
With the midterm elections right around the corner, Schumer can’t afford to lose a single seat if he wants to keep control.
2022 is expected to be a good election for Republicans so he has fewer GOP held Senate seats to target.
Wisconsin has turned into one of the biggest battleground states in the country over the past two Presidential elections.
In 2016 and 2020, the state was decided by less than 25,000 votes.
The incumbent Republican Senator Ron Johnson is a strong ally of President Trump.
First elected in 2010, he promised to only serve two terms in office.
Throughout the course of 2021 he was undecided on running again.
Now he’s decided to seek reelection for a third term.
In explaining his decision to run again he said that his preference was to retire but “America is in peril.”
In deciding to run again, neither he nor his wife “anticipated the Democrats’ complete takeover of government and the disastrous policies they have already inflicted on America and the world, to say nothing of those they threaten to enact in the future.”
This is a massive blow to Schumer’s chances of holding onto the Senate.
An open seat and potentially ugly Republican primary could have given Democrats a better chance to pick up the seat.
Still this will be one of the biggest Senate races this year with hundreds of millions of dollars expected to be spent.
Fortunately for Republicans, Johnson is one of their strongest campaigners.
In 2010, he beat entrenched three-term incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold by nearly five points.
Johnson’s 2016 reelection came after being given no chance to win by the so-called “political experts” and, despite consistently trailing in the polls, he defeated Feingold in a rematch by over three percent.
Now he can prepare for the November election while Democrats have a messy primary to see who his opponent will be.
With Johnson now running for reelection, Schumer got another headache in his bid to hang onto Senate control.
